Amerinet Choice®, the preferred portfolio subsidiary of Amerinet, announced a new five-year exclusive agreement with Health Robotics for its world-leading Sterile Compounding Automation solutions i.v.STATION, i.v.STATION ONCO, and i.v.SOFT Workflow Management solutions.
"We are very excited to offer to our members Health Robotics' revolutionary solutions for sterile compounding automation," said Gary Freeman , vice president of pharmacy for Amerinet. "IV patient safety and reduction of costs are of paramount importance to Amerinet and its members, especially in light of the recent trend in the healthcare industry to insource sterile compounding medications."
Sterile compounding safety has been at the forefront of the recent news coverage and increased regulatory oversight in the United States, especially in light of the deadly meningitis outbreak last year. Health Robotics' Robots are designed to prevent risks such as these, by compounding IV doses in an enclosed ISO-5 chamber, with multiple patient safety checks that can prevent human errors, the most common source of medication contamination and other medical mistakes.
Gaspar DeViedma, Health Robotics' executive vice president and board member, stated: "We are pleased indeed to have been exclusively selected by Amerinet Choice, for the provision of IV Robotics and IV Workflow solutions to their 3,100 member hospitals and more than 60,000 other healthcare providers."
