Barcelona, Spain, November 12, 2020 - Grifols (MCE: GRF, MCE: GRF.P, NASDAQ: GRFS), a global leader in the development of plasma-derived therapies and provider of technologies and services for hospitals, clinics and compounding centers, today announced a partnership with TRC Healthcare, the creator of Pharmacist’s Letter and Pharmacy Technician’s Letter, to support pharmacy leaders with ongoing sterile and nonsterile education.
The companies will integrate Grifols PharmacyKeeper, the No. 1 ranked Category Leader in Intravenous (IV) Workflow Management according to KLAS1 with market-leading clinical education tools and content from TRC Healthcare.
Between the dozens of new medications approved and thousands of clinical study results published each year, it can be challenging to keep pharmacists current on new drugs, high-risk medications and regulatory requirements. PharmacyKeeper and TRC Healthcare look to enhance the quality of patient care and patient safety by delivering clinical education resources and objective recommendations on the latest clinical findings through PharmacyKeeper’s training software system, thus managing pharmacy competencies, certifications and training all in one place.
“We are proud to partner with TRC Healthcare, the No. 1 trusted source for continuing education across the continuum of care,” said Jason Kilgour, President of Commercial Operations North America, Grifols. “Our collaboration will help support pharmacists and technicians by integrating our industry-leading IV Workflow Management software to provide the optimal end-user experience and improve patient safety.”
The partnership to offer high quality and impactful education in support of IV room staff complements and reinforces Grifols’ leadership in designing and building IV rooms, as well as supporting the highest quality IV preparations with KLAS Category Leading IV Workflow Management, including KIRO® automation.
“Having role-specific recommendations from TRC’s Pharmacist’s Letter and Pharmacy Technician’s Letter embedded directly into PharmacyKeeper reduces workflow interruptions, allowing pharmacists and technicians to seamlessly access relevant IV-specific drug information, guidance and continuing education, including important emerging updates for USP <795>, <797>, and <800>,” said Wes Crews, Chief Executive Officer of TRC Healthcare.
