The Time to Update Refrigeration is Now


June 2020 : Refrigeration & Temperature Monitoring - Vol. 17 No. 6 - Page #2

According to Pharmacy Purchasing & Products’ most recent State of Pharmacy Automation survey, nearly all hospital pharmacies have purchased medical-grade refrigeration units, and 81% use this technology exclusively in their pharmacies. However, there is room for improvement, as medication storage on the units does not always receive equal consideration. Only 55% of facilities use commercial grade refrigeration exclusively for medication storage on the units; nevertheless, 45% of facilities plan to invest in commercial grade refrigeration for medication storage on the units. Similarly, 40% of facilities plan to expand commercial grade refrigeration use in their pharmacies.1

When considering purchases in this area, each pharmacy must review the impact refrigeration placement has on workflow. Furthermore, the implementation of medical-grade refrigeration alone is not enough to ensure medication safety; temperature monitoring around the clock is essential. Automated temperature monitoring helps in maintaining compliance with medication safety standards, while also reducing the risk of product loss and ensuring that patients receive effective medications. With customizable reports and the ability to indicate the length of time a given product was stored out of range, this technology has gained widespread popularity throughout pharmacy.

The time to evaluate and update existing systems is now. This market is flourishing with a variety of vendors (see FIGURE 1), who typically receive strong satisfaction marks from their users.
