Breakthrough in US - NewYork Presbyterian chooses DrugLog®
NewYork Presbyterian has, after extensive investigation, chosen DrugLog® to control the returns of narcotic drugs. The agreement comprises a total of 5 DrugLog® units. Installation will take place during the second quarter of 2019.
NewYork Presbyterian (NYP) – one of America’s most prestigious hospital group with 7 hospitals in Manhattan, New York – has after a comprehensive evaluation chosen to order a total of 5 DrugLog® units for its New York facilities. DrugLog® will be used to verify that drugs returned from the operating room are not replaced or tampered with. The DrugLog® devices will be a part of the NYP’s Drug Diversion Prevention Program. Before NYP decided on DrugLog®, they carried out a comprehensive evaluation of all systems available on the market for screening of returned drugs.
CEO Mats Högberg comments: “We are extremely proud that NYP chooses to implement DrugLog® in its program to prevent Drug Diversion. This is a huge breakthrough for DrugLog® and Pharmacolog and means tremendous business opportunities for us in North American market. It has been a long process, much due to the fact that NYP chose to carry out extensive testing of all systems on the market, before finally deciding on DrugLog®. We have worked long-term and purposefully towards the US market and the team has done an outstanding job in establishing this collaboration.”
