Health Robotics Holds Annual Scientific Advisory Board Meeting with Leading Global Hospital Pharmacists
BOZEN, Sud-Tirol, Italy, May 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Health Robotics today announced the company's 2011 Annual Scientific Advisory Board (SAC) Meeting, jointly hosted this week by Campus BioMedico University Hospital facilities in Rome and Health Robotics' Research & Development Center in Trieste, Friuli-Venezia Giulia Region, Italy.
"Under the leadership of Fabio Fioravanti, Health Robotics' Chief Technical Officer, the SAC launches to a great start in 2011. We are all very grateful to Campus BioMedico University Hospital for hosting their SAC colleagues this year, and showcasing Health Robotics' products to the rest of SAC Board Members from University of Chicago, Ochsner Clinic, USC University Hospital, Sutter Health, Grifols, and Bolzano General Hospital, and finally to all of the participants in this week's events. Amongst the SAC highlights include the scientific review of gravimetric control processes, USP797 and cGMP regulations, negative and positive pressure chambers for robotic IV compounding, accuracy of QS doses, prevention of cross-contamination, and finally "hands-on" and peer-reviewed sessions on CytoCare, i.v.STATION, i.v.SOFT, i.v.STATION ONCO, and TPNstation," stated Gaspar DeViedma, Health Robotics' Executive Vice President.
The role of the Scientific Advisory Board is to assist Health Robotics' Research and Development efforts to complete its revolutionary I.V. Room of the Future concept: a "Patient-Aware, All-Digital" construct depicting a common visual and operational framework that elevates the overall understanding of the patients' I.V. Medication needs - its clinical, logistics, quality, costs, and procedural structures; the real-time tracking of I.V. Medications across the care continuum; the optimization of robotics and software automation tools to bridge the gap between rising patient volume/acuity and scarce pharmacy personnel resources; and finally the procedural discipline through visible steps and/or check-points that ensure that critical steps are taken, quality procedures are followed, and audit trails are generated as a by-product of the IV Admixture process.
