Area company helps North Carolina track COVID-19 medications
BUFFALO GROVE -- ARxIUM, a provider of pharmacy automation, workflow and inventory management solutions, said it has completed a multiyear engagement that expands and integrates the UNC Health Shared Services Center, UNC Hospitals, and Rex Hospital.
UNC Health is an integrated health care system owned by the state of North Carolina and based in Chapel Hill.
UNC Health's use of RxWorks Pro, an inventory management application, has been instrumental during COVID-19 in providing readily available data, ARxIUM said. It has allowed the informatics department to remotely access RxWorks, enabling the health system to share data for specific medications, such as remdesivir. Additionally, the application's Virtual Location feature helps manage COVID-related medication inventory across all UNC facilities and provides real time tracking and optimization of locations with the highest demand.
"As a long-standing, collaborative partner with UNC Health, completing the expansion and integration of their pharmacy operations is an exciting milestone for us," said Dr. Niels Erik Hansen, president and CEO of ARxIUM, which is based in Buffalo Grove and Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
