Commentary from the CEO

“Reviewing and resolving documentation variances is extremely valuable and important, and this wouldn’t be possible without the ability for 100% audit of cases,” said Kevin MacDonald, CEO of Kit Check. “We’ve seen an overall 17% increase in hospitals using investigations and a 35% increase in investigations per hospital from last quarter. With the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccination underway, the pandemic continues to take a toll on healthcare facilities. We continue to see an increase in drug diversion, so it’s important that healthcare providers find a balance between providing quality patient care and managing day-to-day activities.”
