Leading automated medication management company brings on industry experts to increase impact amongst hospitals across the United States
Kit Check, the leader in automated medication management solutions for hospitals, today announced new appointments to its leadership team to help foster the company’s continuous growth and increase its recognition amongst hospitals across the country. The appointments cement the company’s focus on improving medication management processes within the hospital as well as amplify their continued efforts to decrease drug diversion.
As the opioid epidemic continues to ravish communities across the country, Kit Check is focused on helping hospitals and healthcare networks achieve 100% diversion audits by utilizing its Bluesight for Controlled Substances (BCS) software. BCS uses machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) to identify anomalous behavior and curb the theft of controlled substances, such as opioids, within the hospital. Currently adopted in over 60 hospitals, BCS saves hospitals time and money, while also creating a safer environment for patients.
“Since Kit Check was founded, we have focused on identifying various ways hospital pharmacies can leverage technology to improve their operations. Rather quickly, we realized the unmet need of diversion auditing, so we developed Bluesight,” said Kevin MacDonald, chief executive officer and co-founder of Kit Check. “Today, we are at a turning point in the industry where a social epidemic is finding its way into our hospital systems. Our mission now is to further educate and help hospitals combat this issue with our technology. By bringing on smart, strategic executives to the table, we can better underscore the importance of medication management and diversion detection to improve efficiencies and keep patients and our communities safe.”
The industry experience and fresh perspectives of the appointees shine a light on Kit Check’s dedication to growing its customer base and bringing the latest technologies to hospital pharmacies. Joining Kit Check and its efforts to increase safety across hospitals include: Amy Langan, Chief Marketing Officer; Doug Zurawski, Pharm.D., Senior Vice President of Clinical Strategy; MaryAnn Jensen, Vice President of Strategic Marketing; Eric Bolling, Executive Vice President.
To find out how Bluesight for Controlled Substances works with hospital pharmacies to fight diversion, meet with Kit Check’s leadership team at TSHP’s Annual Seminar April 12-14, 2019 in Frisco Texas. If you are unable to attend but are interested in learning more, you can request a demo here.
