“It is Kit Check’s goal to make it easier for hospital pharmacists to spend less time on manual tasks and more time on clinical care. Working with Cardinal Health to align with hospital purchasing practices is one more way to achieve that goal. Hospitals can order directly from their online account or through their account representative. The RFID medication tags used for faster and more accurate pharmacy kit processing will be shipped from the regional Cardinal Health distribution center. This will make it even easier for directors of pharmacy to remove the burden of pharmacy kit processing,” said Kit Check Vice President, Doug Zurawski, Pharm.D.
About RFID Medication Tags
Kit Check medication tags include a unique radio frequency identifier and a printable area for medication information in a single universal format that supports the wide variety of medication packaging types used in pharmacy kits. Kit Check customers with Cardinal agreements can now work with their account representatives to load forecasts and order tags directly for pharmacy kit medications. They can also receive Kit Check’s pharmacy kit processing software and hardware at no cost. The solution is installed by Kit Check technicians and does not require support from internal hospital IT staff. Users only need to purchase tags.
Kit Check’s RFID medication tags are key enablers of pharmacy staff efficiency as well as reduced drug budgets and inventory levels. Kit Check tags are applied as adhesive labels and allow pharmacy technicians to identify hundreds of pharmacy kit medications by unique identifiers, NDC, lot number and expiration date in a matter of seconds. This enables Kit Check users to restock hospital pharmacy kits more accurately and 90% faster than with manual processes. The tags also support other hospital pharmacy tasks such as recall management and diversion detection.
