Kit Check reaches milestone with tracking software
The tracked medication was a vial of glycopyrrolate with a strength of 1MG/ML, created at the University of Vermont Medical Center, a 562-bed hospital in Burlington, Vermont.
“The combination of cloud software and RFID technology has proven to be scalable, accurate and fast for tracking hospital medications and restocking pharmacy kits," Kit Check Co-founder and CEO Kevin MacDonald said. "Older technologies such as barcode slowed down the kit restocking process too much, couldn’t effectively manage kit and process variations and could never scale to millions of medications. At five million medications tracked and nearly 500,000 kits restocked for over 150 hospitals, Kit Check is recognized by hospital pharmacy directors as a reliable and popular solution to a tedious and costly manual process."
Kit Check Vice President of Customer Success Nick Petersen was "thrilled that it was the University of Vermont Medical Center that tracked the five millionth medication with Kit Check."
"Not only are they a progressive and tech-savvy group, they’re also one of our most avid users, with nearly 1,200 pharmacy kits in circulation and over 23,000 kits restocked in just one year," Petersen said.
