Health Robotics, a supplier of intravenous medication robots, is set to introduce its oncology robot i.v.Station Onco.

Health Robotics’ products help hospitals eliminate life-threatening drug and diluent exchange errors, decrease other medical mistakes and sterility risks.

They also reduces waste and controlled substances’ diversion, and diminish the gap between rising patient volume/acuity and scarce medical, nursing, and pharmacy staff.

Health Robotics concluded that it is planning to install first i.v.Station Onco at Mercy Medical Center in 1Q2012.

Health Robotics executive vice president Gaspar DeViedma said i.v.Station Onco combines the oncology-specific features of CytoCare with the price, speed, and ROI characteristics of i.v.Station.

Mercy Medical Center Pharmacy Services director Desmond Waters said they plan to install i.v.Station and i.v.soft in 4Q2011 and open up their new Hall-Perrine Cancer Center in 2012 with i.v.Station Onco.

Health Robotics’ other products include i.v.Station [non-hazardous IVs], i.v.Soft [workflow engine for manual compounding], Med archiver [life-critical clinical information system], and Tpn station [totally-automated parenteral nutrition].
