Codonics, the exclusive U.S. distributor of WasteLog®, is helping U.S. hospitals reduce the potential threat of drug diversion with WasteLog®, a drug assay device that helps eradicate diversion. The company placed an order for a WasteLog® system which will be installed at TriHealth Good Samaritan Hospital, the oldest and largest private teaching and tertiary healthcare facility in Greater Cincinnati, Ohio, and part of one of the most integrated healthcare systems in the U.S. WasteLog® is being implemented as a best practice approach to help ensure the chain of custody for handling controlled substances and will help create a reliable safeguard to maintain the integrity of safe medication practices to protect against diversion. The WasteLog® unit will be delivered against the call-off order for eight systems that was announced on January 21st, 2021.“This is yet another prestigious order for WasteLog® achieved by Codonics. We are very grateful to have such a driven and well-established partner in the US. Their existing network, their knowledge about the market, and expertise in medication safety is extremely important for rapid growth in North America,” stated Mats Högberg, CEO, Pharmacolog.
“We are honored to implement additional technology to help TriHealth Good Samaritan Hospital continue their mission to improve safety and quality of care throughout their organization. WasteLog® integrated with their Codonics Safe Label System® provides them with a way to electronically identify the drug and concentration, date and time of preparation, and preparer’s initials from wasted syringes, saving them time and ensuring accuracy,” said Michael Kolberg, VP Sales for Codonics.
“Codonics has been one of our trusted partners since 2014. Codonics Safe Label System® has been implemented in all of our OR’s throughout TriHealth. We are impressed with their ability to work with other vendors to provide integrated solutions that improve efficiency, compliance, and ultimately patient safety. We are excited to take this next step with Codonics and Pharmacolog as we begin utilizing WasteLog® as part of our diversion detection and prevention program,” stated Amy Cobb, PharmD, RPh, Senior Director of Pharmacy, TriHealth.
