Insourcing IV preparation ensures quality, cost savings
Huntsville Hospital, a 941-bed facility serving northern Alabama and southern Tennesee, looked to IV automation to drive a consistent, reliable process to support patient safety and to lower medication costs.
IV compounds are often high cost and high risk. Having increased control of sterile compounding is enabling Huntsville to provide optimal care to their patients while lowering costs.
Another benefit of in-house production: Your pharmacy may provide compounding services to partner facilities, potentially adding a new revenue source for your facility.

"Omnicell’s i.v.STATION not only met Huntsville’s safety and efficiency needs, but the lower cost and smaller size of the robot offered more flexibility in configuring the clean room."
