Irvine, CA (PRWEB) September 15, 2009
Vestara announced today a strategic agreement with Amerinet, a leading national group purchasing organization that was recently named the "2009 Champion for Change" by Practice Greenhealth for outstanding contributions to environmentally responsible healthcare.
This strategic agreement is important because it presents Amerinet's members with an effective, automated solution that addresses pharmaceutical waste management to control increasing costs and facilitate environmental responsibility.
Vestara and Amerinet are both dedicated to providing the healthcare industry with effective solutions that make economic sense and enhance environmental friendliness.
Vestara's EcoRex® Automated Pharmaceutical Waste Management System utilizes barcode technology already widely used in hospitals to track drug utilization that prevents medication errors and a proprietary, continuously updated database of more than 180,000 National Drug Code (NDC) products, to instantly categorize pharmaceutical waste at time of presentation. By automating the identification and sorting of different types of residual drugs, empty containers, and each hospital's unique admixtures, EcoRex® eliminates the human error and potential cross contamination inherent in manual sorting of pharmaceutical waste to reduce negative impact on the environment. Just as important, relevant data and an audit trail are provided in the form of comprehensive reports for client records.
Vestara, headquartered in Irvine, CA, provides proprietary technology to automatically identify, sort, and segregate hazardous and non-hazardous pharmaceutical waste into proper waste streams. Vestara's solutions not only assure clients will be compliant with all federal and state laws, but that they will experience a more efficient health system workforce and true cost savings in managing pharmaceutical waste. Most importantly, clients will play a critical role in preserving our precious environment. To learn more, visit http://www.vestara.com.
