CareFusion Expands Pyxis(R) Perioperative Solutions Offering

SAN DIEGO, July 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CareFusion Corporation, the company that will become publicly traded following the planned spinoff of the clinical and medical products businesses of Cardinal Health, today announced it has expanded its Pyxis((R)) perioperative offerings that integrate with leading operating room information systems (ORIS), incorporate radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology(1) and include new services.

"Our Pyxis((R)) Perioperative Solutions provide hospitals with the technology and services necessary to help improve financial performance, increase operational efficiency and ensure regulatory compliance across both their perioperative and medical-surgical areas," said Rusty Frantz, general manager of Pyxis((R)) Perioperative Solutions for CareFusion. "By integrating our industry leading supply management platform with leading perioperative information systems and providing the value-added services that help enable our customers to achieve best practice, we are delivering a solution that can provide tremendous benefit across the hospital and healthcare system."

First-of-its-kind ORIS integration solution for improved workflow
By integrating Pyxis ProcedureStation(TM) system with a hospital's ORIS, CareFusion helps streamline workflow and improve revenue cycle management. The new offering automatically incorporates surgical supply information directly into patient records and increases preference card and case pick/costing accuracy, freeing nurses to spend less time on non-clinical activities and more time with patients. CareFusion's perioperative integration partners include Picis((R)), Surgical Information Systems (SIS), Epic, and others.

"By integrating our Pyxis ProcedureStation(TM) system and Picis OR Manager at Beaufort Memorial Hospital, overall implant charting time was reduced by an average of 57% -- saving OR nurses up to 1,000 clinician documentation hours annually," said Frantz.

CareFusion is actively pursuing additional clinical information system partnerships to leverage the capabilities of CareFusion products and services that help hospitals measurably improve the safety and quality of healthcare.

Advancing supply automation

By combining the benefits of the Pyxis( )ProcedureStation(TM) with RFID technology(1), the Pyxis ProcedureStation(TM) RFID system from CareFusion helps hospitals manage high value supplies and streamlines clinician workflow while improving inventory accuracy and security. By providing an automated single point-of-access for dispensing of high value inventory, hospital staff can experience increased efficiency in take/return and item tracking, improved data capture and accuracy, the ability to manage expiration dates and recalls, and a reduction in inventory shrinkage.

Identifying process improvement opportunities

Focusing on back-end processes that are key to operational efficiency, CareFusion is introducing an array of service offerings designed to minimize process waste and maximize value. Item Master Preparation and Maintenance services help verify and establish data integrity, standardization and categorization within hospital Item Master systems. Validity of data sets, such as populated and accurate distributor and manufacturer names, are crucial to the optimal performance of Pyxis((R)) supply technologies and successful supply management.

Value Stream Mapping services guide hospitals through Lean transformation by helping them identify inefficiencies in their current processes, material and information flows. CareFusion's expertise in Lean Six Sigma principles helps hospitals visualize where improvement opportunities exist and then analyze how to apply best practice methodology to reduce inefficiencies in specific areas or throughout the hospital. End results can include improved clinical workflow, increased revenue potential and the facilitation of regulatory compliance.

CareFusion plans to highlight these and other key workflow enhancement and supply management solutions at the Association for Healthcare Resource & Materials Management's (AHRMM09) 47th Annual Conference and Exhibition, in Tampa Bay, Florida, from July 19-22, 2009.
