Intelligent Hospital Systems signs deal with hospital in Turkey

  • Print

A Winnipeg company that makes an automated intravenous (IV) compounding system that prepares medications for syringes and IV bags in a sterile environment has entered into an agreement to design the total pharmacy operations for a large hospital in Turkey.

The arrangement between Intelligent Hospital Systems of Winnipeg and Dokuz Eylül University Hospital in Izmir, Turkey, is to develop a total dose solution for medication preparation and delivery at the 1000-bed hospital in Turkey’s third largest city.

Not only is this Intelligent Hospital System’s first opportunity in Europe, it 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.

Dr. Niels Erik Hansen, CEO of IH Systems said this partnership underscores the increasing importance of automation in pharmacy practice.

"We expect that the hospital will realize significant cost savings, enhance patient safety and increase the efficiency of medication preparation and delivery," Hansen said.
