-- November 2, 2011, Alexandria, La-Pearson Medical Technologies, a leader in safe and efficient pharmacy automation, is pleased to announce the installation of the Twin Pack of its new IP128APS® Automated Pharmacy Packaging System at Peninsula Regional Medical Center.
The IP128APS® is the most affordable fully automated unit dose or multi-dose packaging system on the market with the smallest footprint (only 2’ x 2’) available today. The IP128APS® is a fully automated packaging system and increases pharmacy productivity and efficiency by automating prescription filling and unit dose or multi-dose packaging. The IP128APS® increases patient safety by reducing medication and administration errors while improving pharmacy efficiency. The unattended packaging operations will allow Peninsula to optimize workflow by reducing staff requirements.
Brent Pearson, CEO of Pearson Medical Technologies, stated he is happy to include Peninsula Regional Medical Center in the Pearson family. Mr. Pearson noted that, “Because Peninsula Regional has installed two IP128APS® units, they will be able to produce unit dose packaging at twice the speed of single larger systems, allowing the pharmacy to increase efficiency, while using only ½ the footprint of comparable systems, all for the less cost comparable systems.”
Peninsula Regional Medical Center is a 400-bed acute care medical center and has a network of physicians who provide quality care that include Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, Pediatrics and Specialty Providers.
Dennis Killian, the Director of Pharmacy at Peninsula Regional Hospital, commented that “The IP128APS® Twin Pack is a welcomed addition to Peninsula Regional Medical Center. It replaced more costly and less efficient packaging systems and will seamlessly integrate into our BCMA system.” Peninsula Regional Medical Center has a network of physicians who provide quality care that includes Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, Pediatrics and Specialty Providers.
