Intelligent Hospital Systems Partners with Dokuz Eylül University Hospital in Turkey to Develop Total Dose Solution

January 9, 2013

WINNIPEG, Manitoba--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Intelligent Hospital Systems (IH Systems), maker of the RIVA automated IV compounding system, today announced that it has entered into a partnership with Dokuz Eylül University Hospital in Izmir, Turkey, to develop a total dose solution (TDS) for medication preparation and delivery at the 1000-bed hospital.

The pioneering collaboration is believed to be the first time a pharmacy technology provider such as IH Systems has partnered with a hospital to develop a comprehensive pharmacy and dosing solution, and also represents IH Systems’ expansion into the European market.

“This partnership not only underscores the increasing importance of automation in pharmacy practice, but allows Dokuz Eylül University Hospital to leverage IH Systems’ unique expertise and thought leadership to implement a custom-designed dose solution,” said Dr. Niels Erik Hansen, CEO of IH Systems. “We expect that the hospital will realize significant cost savings, enhance patient safety and increase the efficiency of medication preparation and delivery.”

The first phase of the partnership, an end-to-end assessment of current pharmacy utilization and workflow at the hospital – from physician orders to delivery of medications to patients – took place in November. Working onsite in Turkey, pharmacy practice experts from IH Systems will use the data to develop a phased plan to improve the medication delivery process and develop a TDS for the hospital.
