Kit Check invents RFID kit processing after extensive R&D
During a conversation over dinner with a hospital pharmacist friend, Kevin MacDonald, co-founder and CEO, was shocked by the inefficiencies and manual processes required of a busy clinician. His friend lamented the days-long restocking processes and need for a pharmacist to pick up and read the label of every single vial leaving the pharmacy in a medication kit. With his background in RFID technology, Kevin realized there must be an easier way.
Kit Check powered by Bluesight® is implemented at the University of Maryland Medical Center and NYU Langone.
- Safecor partners with Kit Check to supply pre-tagged medications, saving technician time in the tagging process.
- Pre-filled syringes pre-tagged with Kit Check compatible RFID labels, are introduced in conjunction with 503b outsourcing facilities.
Today hundreds of pre-tagged NDCs are available from every major 503b outsourcing facility.
- Kit Check expands functionality to automated dispensing cabinet (ADC) liners; creates central distribution workflow for medication tray replenishment.
- Kit Check introduces Network Recall feature that tracks recalls entered by Kit Check users and alerts other hospitals in the Kit Check network that may have that item in their inventory.
Kit Check introduces Bluesight® for Controlled Substances
Kit Check had been tracking controlled substances in narcotic or controlled substances kits since the initial RFID-based product launch. Pharmacists quickly recognized the need to have more accurate tracking of the distribution and use of controlled medications. An early site used Kit Check data to trace the origin of a diversion event based on the system’s knowledge of the item’s location, provider use, and history.
Born of this hospital collaboration, is Bluesight for Controlled Substances, a cloud-based software solution that provides comprehensive audit coverage of all controlled substances distributed from Automated Dispensing Cabinets (ADCs) and charted in the patient’s Electronic Medical Record (EMR).
- Kit Check introduces the Individual Risk Identification Score (IRIS) dashboard for Bluesight for Controlled Substances, allowing hospitals to see clinicians who are a significant risk for diversion based on analogous behavior patterns from their peer group.
- Kit Check partners with Nephron Pharmaceuticals to embed RFID tags in their full line of prefilled syringe products.
- Kit Check partners with Omnicell to offer Bluesight for Controlled Substances as a module of the Omnicell One platform.
- Kit Check collaborates with Sandoz – our first generic pharmaceutical manufacturer – to bring select medications to market that are RFID-enabled at the point of production.
- Kit Check reaches 100 million medications tagged milestone – at OhioHealth Grant Hospital with a 10 ml vial of Sodium Chloride 0.9%.
- Kit Check joins the DoseID industry consortium as a founding member to bring standardization and interoperability to RFID across the healthcare space.
- Kit Check launches a newly redesigned Mobile Pharmacy to bring restocking on wheels to the OR.
Kit Check launches Bluesight Insights™ to automate drug spend optimization
As experts in item-level visibility Kit Check launches Bluesight Insights, simplifying pharmacy stocking with real-time insights into drug pricing, drug availability, GPO compliance, and 340B regulations — helping pharmacy buyers make smart decisions to benefit their hospital.
Kit Check’s suite of leading-edge integrated Medication Intelligence™ solutions are designed to help hospitals gain visibility into the entire medication lifecycle with actionable analytics — ensuring simplicity, visibility, and predictability at every stage.
Medication Intelligence is at the core of everything we do. We believe too much time is spent operating the medication supply chain and not enough time is focused on clinical care. We believe the root of these problems is that systems in use today do not understand enough about the medications they are handling – where they are, where they came from and what they cost. We believe in a world where a smart item can reinvent the supply chain and automate out the drudgery, so that patients get the right drug at the right time for the right price.

What Our Clients Are Saying
Makes my job so much easier! I have worked in a hospital without Kit Check before, and it required a [full-time] technician to manually refill all the trays/boxes! To me, Kit Check is worth the expense, especially for the unusual amount of boxes this hospital’s pharmacy has.
Kit Check has been great to work with…and they want to help optimize your front-end operations as much as possible. They’re very responsive to feedback and willing to work with you.
Director of Pharmacy,
Before [implementing Bluesight for Controlled Substances], we were fighting fires, but could never be sure that they were the right ones. Having data from multiple sites all in one place and a report that is easy to read and understand is beneficial.
