BOZEN, Sud-Tirol, Italy, April 26, 2010 Health Roboticstoday announced the upcoming cooperation with the International Society ofOncology Pharmacy Practitioners (ISOPP), B|Braun Melsungen, and the GeneralFaculty Hospital of Prague to host ISOPP delegates at its bi-annual congressto witness live demonstrations of CytoCare in an Oncology patient setting.CytoCare is the only robot in the world proven to compound hazardous sterileI.V. Admixtures. ISOPP 2010 delegates may reserve attendance to thisinvitation-only event (space limited) athttp://www.isopp2010.com/en/health-robotics.
CytoCare directly addresses the challenges of Oncology Pharmacy in the21st Century, as it has globally set the gold standard of automaticallyhandling the complex and dangerous tasks associated with hazardous CSP(Compounded Sterile Preparations), increasing quality of care, improvingpatient safety, and decreasing costs, with hospital pharmacy Installations inthe United States of America, United Kingdom, Australia, Japan, Malaysia,Taiwan, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Denmark, and CzechRepublic.
"As we are now approaching 60 global installations of CytoCare, it isindeed a pleasure to share with global ISOPP 2010 delegates the patient andpharmacy safety benefits that academic medical centers such as CharlesUniversity's General Faculty Hospital have derived from CytoCare over thelast 3 years, especially in contrast with the hype spread by our competitorswho after more than 20 years of unsubstantiated announcements[1,2] have yetto even attempt to install a single robot in a hospital pharmacy forchemotherapy use anywhere in the world" stated Werner Rainer, HealthRobotics' CEO.
