Announcing the collaboration of Baxa Corporation, ClinicalIQ LLC, and Pharmacy OneSource, Inc to bring greater understanding of, and compliance to, USP < 797 > for the healthcare industry.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Nov. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Baxa Corporation has teamed up with industry leaders ClinicalIQ, LLC and Pharmacy OneSource, Inc. to convey a complete compliance solution for the latest updates in United States Pharmacopeia (USP) < 797 > regulations. The alliance among these industry-leading companies provides health-system pharmacies with the tools to stay compliant with the standards set forth by USP. Each company focuses on one of the three regulatory requirements of USP < 797 >: personnel training, facility design and quality documentation. These companies' products and services are designed to work in tandem, simplifying the requirements and helping users meet pharmacy-specific USP < 797 > compliance needs.

The agreement streamlines health-system pharmacies' understanding of and access to the companies' state-of-the-art compliance tools. By implementing all three products at one location, users can ensure that facility and personnel are being equipped for safety and best practice. "This is a simple and straightforward way to approach USP < 797 > compliance," states Phillip Wettestad, Baxa Corporation Pharmacy Operations Specialist. "Not only does it ensure a safe practice environment for the patients, but the pharmacy administration will feel confident during any facility compliance audit."

Baxa Corporation offers two different types of pharmacy skills training for USP < 797 > compliance. The first is a robust, hands-on program held in its state-of-the-art STAR (Skills Training, Academics and Resources) Center(R) facility.

Through CriticalPoint, users have access to 32 ACPE-approved CE hours that focus on specific aspects of the USP < 797 > requirements for compounding sterile preparations. Recently, several interactive lessons called the Virtual Compounder(TM) were added to the CriticalPoint training program to make the on-line experience more dynamic and to facilitate greater understanding and demonstrated proficiency of the training concept.

This Web-based system is customized to provide surveillance, benchmarking, and quality system review specific to facility's compounding sites.
