BD to Showcase Its Complete Hospital Pharmacy Solutions at the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists’ 2014 Mid-Year Clinical Meeting
“Despite best efforts, patient and healthcare worker safety may still be compromised during the medication distribution process,” said William A. Tozzi, President, BD Medical – Medical-Surgical Systems. “Furthermore, as healthcare continues to evolve, there is a growing demand for better outcomes, while controlling costs through implementing smarter workflow efficiencies. BD’s portfolio of comprehensive hospital pharmacy solutions is specifically designed to address these challenges by improving patient and healthcare worker safety, improving workflow efficiency and helping to facilitate compliance with guidelines and standards in constant evolution. »
The exhibition will provide an experiential view of BD solutions being developed to help tackle the difficult task facing pharmaceutical chief executives to balance quality improvements, worsening legislation changes and drug shortages while continuing to meet cost reduction expectations.
BD’s experiential booth #1101 will feature:
BD Cato™ Drug Workflow Solutions: an automated pharmacy workflow system that detects erroneous dose/medication errors in real time, standardizes workflow for medication preparations, automates documentation, and optimizes medication usage to reduce medication waste.

The BD PhaSeal System is an airtight, leak-tight CSTD that mechanically prohibits the transfer of environmental contaminants into the system and the escape of drug concentrations or vapors outside the system, thereby minimizing personal exposure and environmental exposure to aerosols and drug vapor spills. The system also prevents microbial penetration. With a limited number of components and a single connection interface, the dimensions of the BD PhaSeal System are created according to ISO standards to be compatible with all standard size drug bottles and tubing.
