ForHealth Technologies, Inc. Receives Technology Of The Year Award


10/19/2005 5:12:22 PM

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., Dec. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- ForHealth Technologies, Inc., a leader in automated devices for intravenous drug preparation, was awarded second place for "Technology of the Year" at The Emerging Technologies and Healthcare Innovations Congress (TETHIC) held on Nov. 30 in Washington, D.C.

The annual TETHIE awards recognize excellence in the advancement of new and innovative technologies that expedite the delivery and improvement of patient care and safety. This year, more than 130 healthcare organizations were nominated in 10 categories. The awards are judged and presented by some of the nation's leading healthcare executives, clinicians, technology thought leaders and physicians. TETHIC provides healthcare executives with the industry's leading conference that addresses the impact and promise of technology and innovation on the future of healthcare.

"The TETHIE awards are among the most respected awards in our industry and we are honored that our innovations used in developing the IntelliFill i.v. have received this kind of recognition," said Rod Wolford, chairman and CEO of ForHealth Technologies, Inc. "ForHealth's IntelliFill i.v. is setting new standards for hospital pharmacies in patient safety, cost efficiency and compliance and we thank our clients for their continued partnership and for placing their confidence in us to provide leading innovative solutions to their many challenges."

ForHealth received the award for its flagship product IntelliFill i.v. The system automates the compounding and labeling of intravenous doses in syringes at speeds that can only be achieved through automated processes. By employing bar code scanning, vision systems and weight confirmation steps, and by providing final products that are identified with barcodes, IntelliFill i.v. reduces medication errors. Furthermore, by providing a Class 10 compounding environment, IntelliFill i.v. assures that the final i.v. product produced is of the highest quality. The system also promotes long-term hospital cost savings by preparing the final intravenous products in a syringe instead of an i.v. bag.

With nearly five million patient-use syringes prepared in hospitals by its IntelliFill i.v. robots, ForHealth Technologies understands the rigorous requirements for accuracy, productivity and sterility. With over 24 U.S. patents in process, ForHealth is well positioned to continue to bring technological innovation to the i.v. compounding process.
