BOZEN, Sud-Tirol, Italy, November 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Health Robotics today reported a new i.v.STATION "Go Live" in record time at Wyoming Medical Center in Casper, Wyoming. This quick implementation highlights the benefits that Health-System Pharmacies can immediately garner from Health Robotics' streamlined implementation processes, especially in light of the recent drug shortages and closures of NECC and Ameridose. Health Robotics' customers continue leading the market towards insourcing of Sterile Compounding Automation, while taking advantage of the cost and patient safety benefits.
John Arross, Director of Pharmacy at Wyoming Medical Center, stated: "Within 12 weeks after signing a contract with Health Robotics we were able to install the i.v.STATION Robot and conduct the air quality, microbiology, cross-contamination, performance, and other standard acceptance tests necessary to "Go Live" on October 16, 2012. Commonly used products on i.v.STATION are Cefazolin, Ceftriaxone, Clindamycin, Gentamicin, Oxytocin, Vancomycin, and Zosyn."
Gaspar DeViedma, Health Robotics' Executive Vice President, stated: "Wyoming Medical Center how holds the record for fastest "Live" implementation of i.v.STATION, shattering our previous best practice of 16 weeks from purchase order to "Live". As we continue improving our implementation processes, we keep demonstrating that i.v.STATION is a very affordable solution for Community Hospitals, yielding an extraordinarily fast Return On Investment. i.v.STATION is quickly installed without disrupting existing Sterile Compounding operations, without requiring additional premium space in the Pharmacy, and without costly construction expenses. In addition to i.v.STATION's prior documented success at Academic, Pediatric, and Outsourced Compounding Centers, i.v.STATION's unique Second Generation architecture advantages demonstrate its adaptability to all types of Health-System Pharmacies."
