Kit Check’s Drug Diversion Product Added to Vizient Group Purchasing Contract

Share Article

Bluesight for Controlled Substances, a product designed to help identify and prevent drug diversion events in hospital pharmacies and the perioperative space, is now available to Vizient member hospitals at a significant savings.

Bluesight CS is a comprehensive solution that provides actionable reports to pharmacy and administrators in real-time, not days after an event may have occurred.

Kit Check, the leading provider of medication management solutions for hospital pharmacies, announced that its newest product, Bluesight for Controlled Substances (Bluesight CS), has been added to the Vizient group purchasing agreement. Bluesight CS is the only drug auditing solution on the market to offer comprehensive coverage of the high-risk perioperative space. It joins the industry standard Kit Check RFID-enabled automated inventory management solution on the contract.

“Bluesight CS is a product that is completely in alignment with Vizient’s mission to accelerate member hospital performance,” said Kevin MacDonald, Kit Check CEO. “Drug diversion can occur anywhere in the distribution, use, and documentation chain, and that’s a lot of data to comb through manually. Bluesight CS is a comprehensive solution that provides actionable reports to pharmacy and administrators in real-time, not days after an event may have occurred.”

A unique solution for Vizient member hospitals, Bluesight CS is compatible with all the industry-leading automated dispensing cabinet (ADC) and EHR platforms. It seamlessly connects information from ADCs, EMRs, and other systems to provide a 100% audit of the dispense, administration, waste, and return records for controlled substances. Powerful machine learning algorithms process item level ‘big data’ from across the entire drug lifecycle to uncover hidden patterns and correlations not readily revealed in manual audits, which typically examine just 10% of the available data.

“Relying on partial data from just the ADC exposes hospitals to an unacceptable amount of risk,” said MacDonald. “Bluesight CS examines the entire data set. Once you have that level of accuracy, you can move on to solving for other gaps like lost charge reconciliation and automated ordering.”

Vizient is the country’s largest GPO based on spend and provides services to over fifty percent of the nation’s acute care providers. Members can enjoy a significant savings on Bluesight CS, which is already in use at hospitals across the country.
