Meet the Kit Check Pharmacists

Jenny HarlettBlog

From day one, Kit Check has been committed to making pharmacy-first product innovations. Our flagship RFID medication management system was born out of a dinner conversation Kit Check CEO and co-founder Kevin MacDonald had with a pharmacist friend. Since then, we have been designing products based on interactions with pharmacy and healthcare professionals every day.

We have four pharmacists on staff in a variety of capacities here in our Washington, DC headquarters. Having these clinical experts working with us every day makes us even better able to meet the needs of hospital pharmacists, which drives everything we do.
