Bluesight Demonstrates Industry-Leading Performance in Drug Diversion Detection; New Data Highlights 6.6X Advantage Over Competitors

Bluesight’s ControlCheck delivers hard outcomes by identifying a diverter every two days 

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 7, 2024 — Bluesight, the leader in Medication Intelligence™ solutions, announced today new data that showcases the performance of ControlCheck, the company’s next generation of drug diversion monitoring. A new data analysis comparing ControlCheck against other industry solutions from Q1 to Q4 2023 found ControlCheck 6.6 times more likely to detect diversion, setting a new standard for medication safety and security. 

During this same period, ControlCheck identified a staggering 808 confirmed cases of drug diversion showcasing its unparalleled efficacy in safeguarding healthcare institutions. Additionally, ControlCheck revealed 9 out of 10 of those diversion events were attributed to Registered Nurse personnel. “Late 2023 Bluesight transitioned a majority of Medacist customers to ControlCheck. Since the transition to ControlCheck, one of our newest conversion customers found a confirmed diversion event in their first week of using the software.” said Samir Neyazi, Director of Product at Bluesight.

ControlCheck represents a significant leap forward in the fight against diversion, offering healthcare institutions a new level of accuracy and efficiency in identifying potential risks through machine learning analytics.
