BOZEN, Italy, July 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Health Robotics today announced that it has signed a definitive agreement with Charite-Universitatsmedizin Berlin. Charite will install an i.v.STATION robot at its Centrum 14 during the second half of 2009.
The primary challenges in today's IV Admixture operations are serious medication errors, high costs, turn-around time, waste, regulatory issues, lack of audit trails, motion injuries, space constraints and difficulty in maintaining adequate and trained clinical staff. The i.v.STATION robot that automatically compounds non-hazardous IV doses and delivers them to the hospital staff in a ready-to-administer format for antibiotics, pain therapy, anti-virals, epidurals, and other IV and injectable doses. i.v.STATION was designed to address the above-mentioned industry-challenges, and to overcome the fact that until now, the range of products and technology available to mitigate these issues has consisted of variations on the IV "piggyback" bag, outsourcing of IVs, and mid-1990s-developed automated solutions that have seen very limited adoption and success.
"i.v.STATION represents a revolutionary approach in the quest for safe, accurate, efficient, and cost effective I.V. Admixtures. It offers unprecedented error reduction, accuracy and sterility benefits, nursing staff labor savings, all within a scalable and fail-safe architecture. We are delighted to be the first German hospital to test the exciting new technology of i.v.STATION robot," stated PD Dr. Hartmut Radtke, Chief of Production of Blood Products at Charite-Universitatsmedizin Berlin.
"We are ecstatic to have been selected by such a prestigious health care
institution as Charite-Universitatsmedizin-Berlin, well known throughout the
world for both its research and patient care excellence. It makes everyone at
our company, especially those of us coming from Sud-Tirol very proud of what
we have acco
