Switching your hospital or health system to unit-dose drug repackaging services offers benefits on so many levels, including saving thousands of dollars each year. Here are just a few ways your facility will benefit:
By outsourcing unit-dose repackaging, you can reduce the equipment and labor expenditures of packaging in-house. In fact, working with Safecor Health can lead to average annual cost savings from $400 to $700 per patient bed.
Safecor Health’s repackaging and bar coding formats work with your facility’s equipment and support all pharmacy systems and scanning hardware. This not only saves time, but it can save your pharmacy as much as 50% or more versus packaging in-house.
Safecor Health repackages most drugs on the NIOSH list, including hazardous drugs. After the implementation of USP <800> guidelines, it became even riskier (and more expensive) for hospitals to meet these guidelines in-house. Safecor Health meets guidelines and standards put forth by ISMP, USP, ASHP and cGMP.
Safecor Health repackages controlled substances, which can be expensive and time-consuming for hospitals. Repackaging controlled substances with Safecor Health helps address regulatory compliance and the increased packaging risks associated with controlled substances.
