Kit Check and QuVa Pharma announced the formation of a partnership designed to streamline medication tracking for hospital pharmacies throughout the United States. Under the agreement, QuVa Pharma will embed Kit Checks Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags on their prefilled syringes. The embedded tags will work with the scanning solutions provided by Kit Check to improve medication inventory management and reduce waste by making the syringes immediately available to drop into kits.
Medicines produced by QuVa Pharma arrive ready-to-use, having been produced and fully tested in a controlled environment. The embedded RFID tags allow hospital pharmacists to add batches of medications to inventory in seconds using the Kit Check scanner. Once in inventory, the Kit Check solution permits medications to be tracked throughout the hospital—from pharmacy to patient — whether they are in bags, trays or kits. Combined with their powerful machine learning platform called Bluesight, this item-level tracking enables Kit Check to provide pharmacists with actionable insights such as real-time restocking, inventory benchmarking and even manufacturer recalls, regardless of the medication management workflow in use at the hospital.
“We are very excited to have a high-quality partner like QuVa Pharma on board,” said Kevin MacDonald, co-founder and CEO at Kit Check. “Pretagged syringes are a preferred approach for many of our client pharmacies since they allow the pharmacists to maximize the effectiveness of the Kit Check kit and tray automation process.
