“As health systems search for solutions to reduce the risk of medication errors, they are looking for innovative ways to reduce the risks associated with administering multiple drugs to a single patient,” comments Rodney Schutt, CEO of MedLite ID. “MedLite ID can help make it faster and easier to identify the safe administration route. We’re incredibly pleased that Premier sees the value in MedLite ID, and we’re looking forward to engaging their membership to enhance patient safety and staff efficiency.”
MedLite ID, is a Utah‐based manufacturer with the world’s only patient safety solution that lights the emergency medication infusion line to prevent medication errors related to multiple infusions.
