PRESS RELEASE


7/7/2014- The Intelligent Healthcare Association (IHA), in a partnership with ASHP (American Society of Health-System Pharmacists), is excited to introduce the first-ever Intelligent Pharmacy Pavilion (IPP) at ASHP’s 2014 Midyear Clinical Meeting and Exhibition in Anaheim, CA, December 7-11.

This 7,200-square-foot pavilion will feature demonstration rooms that will showcase the latest technologies being utilized in today’s hospitals and ambulatory care pharmacies. The IPP will allow healthcare professionals to observe the integration of medication management technology and patient care delivery.

Medication management systems are complex and can contribute to human errors. The Intelligent Pharmacy Pavilion will feature management systems and emerging technologies that counter these challenges and improve patient safety, increase operational efficiencies, and streamline the pharmaceutical supply chain.

“We are extremely pleased to be working with ASHP and are confident that the Intelligent Pharmacy Pavilion will provide an exciting, educational experience for visitors,” said Dr. Shannon “JJ” Johnson, Chairman of the Pavilion Planning Committee and Director of Pharmacy for Sharp Memorial Hospital in San Diego.

“ASHP looks forward to hosting this innovative exhibit during the 2014 Midyear,” said Julie Webb, R.Ph., ASHP Vice President of Professional Development. “The Pavilion will provide attendees with a unique look at how technology can be utilized to prevent errors and improve safety for their patients.”
