The IntelliGuard® Linked Visibility Inventory System™ is the first real-time inventory management system that operates at the point-of-care to provide accurate, data-driven processes, without impact to anesthesia care team workflows. Using patented and exclusive RFID technology, the IntelliGuard® LVIS™ automatically collects actionable medication inventory data at the point-of-care, without requiring manual counting, paper recording or item level scanning.
The IntelliGuard® RFID-enabled solution empowers pharmacy teams to:
Know what, when and who removed or returned each OR drug, as it occurs
Ensure anesthesia care teams always have what they need
Manage regulatory and narcotics control requirements
Understand diversion vulnerability for controlled substances
Ensure expiry is properly managed and recalls are quickly and thoroughly handled
…All conveniently out of sight at the point-of-care.
An RFID-enabled IntelliGuard® LVIS™ securely stores drugs in each operating room. Access-controlled locking records each user interaction and provides the security needed for narcotics storage.
Every time an IntelliGuard® LVIS™ drawer is closed, the IntelliGuard® RFID inventory management system captures and timestamps data on every medication removed or returned. And because the IntelliGuard® LVIS™ automatically tracks inventory upon removal, highly valued open matrix access is granted to anesthesia care teams – speeding access to medications and virtually eliminating the practice of pre-drawing medications for multiple patients in advance.
Offering secure access, constant, real-time visibility, and reliable use metrics crucial for hospital pharmacy charge capture validation, the IntelliGuard® LVIS™ provides visibility and analytics to enable pharmacy departments to deliver superior service levels key to quality patient care and physician satisfaction, metrics to enable cooperative inventory planning, and visibility to ensure the secure storage and accounting required for restricted drugs.
With virtually guaranteed anesthesia care team compliance, pharmacists are equipped with:
Continuous accurate inventory level visibility
Advance notifications of impending stock-outs
Real-time and historical usage data
Precise utilization data for charge capture reconciliation
Identification of diversion vulnerabilities
