Kit Check Releases New, Smaller ‘Blue Box’ Scanning Station

Jenny HarlettPress Release

Portable low-profile scanning station supports highly accurate medication tracking  from the pharmacy to the OR

WASHINGTON, DC Kit Check has added a new low-profile scanning station to its product line-up. The smaller station incorporates the same features and scanning speed as the larger boxes, but measures 26.99″ wide, 22.95″ deep, and just 9.25″ tall. It is an excellent solution for mobile carts or pharmacies where space is limited, and furthers Kit Checks dominance as a developer of OR workflow solutions.

“The reduced size will definitely benefit smaller or space constrained pharmacies,” said Kevin MacDonald, CEO of Kit Check. “But more importantly, this new low-profile allows Kit Check to be used in care settings outside the pharmacy, as a mobile restocking solution in the OR for example.  In case after case hospitals who have automated with us facility-wide have reported tremendous improvements in accuracy of their medications tracking over alternate methods.”

The Kit Check system is designed to automate kit and tray management throughout the hospital. By eliminating the need for a technician to pick up and inspect individual medications, restocking can be accomplished up to 96% faster and with dramatically fewer errors. A recent industry survey noted that 56% of the hospital pharmacies with automation were using Kit Check, making it the leading solution for medication tray management.

At the heart of Kit Check’s solutions is their sophisticated Bluesight platform, which brings the power of artificial intelligence to bear on the problem of item level medication tracking and allows hospitals to efficiently manage and interpret highly complex information.

“This goes well beyond crash cart medication tracking,” said Cameron Ferroni, Chief Product Officer at Kit Check, “Hospitals are tying themselves in knots attempting to use their dispensing cabinets to manage inventory in the OR. The real value is getting the smaller box out of the pharmacy so it can be used to address the accuracy of item-level tracking in those ADC-only workflows. Once that is resolved we can provide solutions for controlled substance tracking, lost charge reconciliation and automated ordering.”

The low-profile scanner is just one of extensive set of options offered by Kit Check that can be configured to meet the needs to any hospital workflow. Also new for 2018 is an enhanced ‘no fold’ tag style that wraps securely around medications and features a printable space that permits drug information to be added directly to the tag. For hospitals seeking even more process efficiency Kit Check maintains relationships with a wide variety of tagging partners that can deliver medications pretagged, activated and verified by a registered pharmacist.
