The 2013 ASHP Midyear conference was jam packed with presentations and pharmacists. One presentation of note by the University of Maryland Medical Center’s (UMMC) Adrienne Shepardson focused on the hospital’s experience with Kit Check.
Yesterday Kit Check announced a partnership with Safecor, the largest medication repackager serving hospitals in the United States. We started working with Safecor early in 2013 and it is now serving eight Kit Check customers. We wanted to offer an option for customers to have medications arrive with RFID tags already applied. Safecor’s scale and validated safety procedures made it a logical choice. Kit Check operates in the last 10 feet of the hospital medication supply chain and Safecor helps makes that process easier and safe.
