DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- ForHealth Technologies, Inc., a pioneer in medication error reduction and hospital pharmacy I.V. room automation, recently announced the selection of its robotic I.V. dose preparation system, IntelliFill i.v.(TM), by the Alegent Health System. The largest not-for-profit, faith-based healthcare system in Nebraska and southwestern Iowa, Alegent Health System was recently named the number one health system in the country by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

The speed and accuracy with which the robot produces I.V. doses will allow for the automation of all doses for five Alegent Health hospitals located in Nebraska and southwestern Iowa.
