Baxa Addresses Health-System Capital Shortage with New Programs for IntelliFlowRx and IntelliFill i.v.®
October 02, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsEnglewood, Colo., October 2, 2009 – Baxa Corporation announces the launch of a new program for sourcing its IntelliFill i.v. Automation and IntelliFlow Rx Pharmacy Workflow Manager products. The Baxa IntelliSource™ program offers health-system pharmacies access to the automation and software they need to ensure that each dose dispensed is safe and accurate – without making capital investments, paying one-time setup fees or signing capital leases.
"Our goal was to make it easy for health systems to improve their pharmacy operations," notes Greg Baldwin, Baxa CEO. "We feel that patient safety improvements shouldn't take a back seat to this economy's capital crunch. The IntelliSource pricing model makes it easy for health systems to install the latest pharmacy technology, eliminating the need for capital investment and providing manageable monthly fees for access."
Using the IntelliSource model, health systems can implement the IntelliFlowRx pharmacy workflow manager without capital expenditures or lump-sum setup charges. This allows facilities of all sizes the ability to use barcode drug identification, automated dose preparation workflow management and dose checking safety features provided by IntelliFlowRx. In addition, the Baxa IntelliSource program makes it easy for health systems to get started. Once consultation on pharmacy workflow is completed, systems can be installed without the lengthy delays associated with capital allocation procedures.
For the IntelliFill i.v. System, using IntelliSource allows health-systems to implement leading-edge automation for IV preparation and labeling without capital investment. That provides access for the advanced technology used to prepare nearly 27 million patient doses to a greater number of North American health systems.
Both the IntelliFlowRx and the IntelliFill i.v. Systems provide demonstrated improvements in pharmacy dose management and IV room productivity. These products promote best practices for pharmacy operations, reduce drug waste, ensure dose accuracy and improve patient safety – one dose at a time.
Baxa Corporation, an exhibitor at the 44th American Society for Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) Midyear Clinical Meeting in Las Vegas, will provide details of the IntelliSource program in their booth (101) at the Venetian Hotel and Sands Expo Center December 6th – 10th, 2009.
