Swisslog Healthcare Solutions, a leading supplier of automation solutions for materials transport and medication management, announces its partnership with Visante healthcare consulting at the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) Midyear Clinical Meeting in Anaheim, California - December 7 – 11, 2014.
During exhibit hours, Visante will be providing 5-minute educational sessions on the topics of automation technology, patient safety, antimicrobial stewardship, readmissions, sterile compounding and drug diversion. Visitors to the Swisslog booth will be able to engage in discussions about how to maximize technology investments and improve their pharmacy's operations.
"Together, Visante and Swisslog can help hospitals take their automation technology to the next level by applying our experience in industry standards and best practices," explains James Jorgenson, CEO of Visante, Inc. "Our on-site assessments evaluate how hospitals utilize automation technology to find ways to maximize the automation solutions to improve care and reduce costs."
Visitors to the Swisslog booth can enter to win a complimentary Visante assessment, which includes a multidisciplinary team of experts who will analyze their hospital's current situation and measure the results against best practices to uncover key areas for change. "Upon completion of the on-site assessment, they'll receive a detailed report along with recommendations for next steps. This type of information can be especially beneficial when advocating for a capital investment in new technology," explains Jorgenson.
In addition to the Visante consultants, the Swisslog booth at the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting will be unlike anything seen from the brand in years past. "When you come to the Swisslog booth, you'll be stepping inside a Swisslog hospital. Our entire pharmacy automation suite will be set up to showcase the medication management process. It's the perfect setup for giving product demonstrations, and we are most excited to include a full-scale model of our PillPick® Automated Packaging and Dispensing System," explains Marian Robinson, VP of Marketing for Swisslog.
