GPO Selects Firm for Repackaging and Bar Coding Services
Safecor Health LLC will now be providing medication repackaging and bar coding services to HealthTrust Purchasing Group L.P., in an effort to enhance medication safety and improve pharmacy operations. HealthTrust is a group purchasing organization that serves nearly 1400 not-for-profit and for-profit acute care facilities, as well as 10,600 ambulatory surgery centers, physician practices, and alternate care sites.
An FDA-registered pharmaceutical manufacturer and repackager with production facilities in Columbus, OH, and Woburn, MA, Safecor Health provides outsourced medication repackaging and bar coding services to institutional pharmacies. The company can help minimize pharmacy labor costs associated with repackaging and checking medications, can reduce or limit capital equipment investments in repackaging equipment, and reallocate valuable pharmacy space, it reported in a press release.
Safecor Health’s repackaging formats and bar codes are developed to integrate with existing clinical pharmacy systems as well as inventory and drug dispensing systems. They can support accurate drug replenishment and safe administration of meds at the patient bedside or point of care, the company reported.
