Irvine, CA (PRWEB) August 26, 2009 -- Vestara announced today a strategic agreement with leading contract services company Novation, to provide the nearly 2,000 VHA and University HealthSystem Consortium (UHC) and nearly 14,000 members of Provista, LLC with the only automated pharmaceutical waste management solution in the industry. Novation's vast network includes acute hospitals and systems, academic medical centers, ambulatory care and physician clinics, home health and long-term care facilities.

This strategic agreement presents the members with a make-sense solution for pharmaceutical waste management that controls costs and facilitates environmental responsibility. Vestara and Novation both strive to provide the healthcare industry with effective solutions that not only make economic sense for their clients, but that also contribute to preserving the environment.

Vestara's EcoRex® Automated Pharmaceutical Waste Management System utilizes barcode technology already widely used in hospitals to track drug utilization that prevents medication errors and a proprietary, continuously updated database of more than 180,000 National Drug Code (NDC) products, to instantly categorize pharmaceutical waste at time of presentation. By automating the identification and sorting of different types of residual drugs, empty containers, and each hospital's unique admixtures, EcoRex® eliminates the human error and potential cross contamination inherent in manual sorting of pharmaceutical waste to reduce negative impact on the environment. Just as important, relevant data and an audit trail are provided in the form of comprehensive reports for client records.
