Acquisition of PHACTS, LLC strengthens CareFusion's end-to-end medication management offering
SAN DIEGO, March 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - CareFusion today announced an agreement to acquire PHACTS, LLC, a Seattle-based technology and consulting company that helps hospital pharmacies better manage inventory, reduce pharmaceutical costs and streamline operations. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The acquisition will advance CareFusion's strategy to offer hospitals safe and efficient systems to manage medication throughout their facilities – from the loading dock to the patient bedside and through to waste segregation. By adding PHACTS to the company's core Pyxis® dispensing technologies portfolio, CareFusion will be able to provide health systems better visibility into drug inventories, helping to reduce on-hand inventory, streamline staff workflow, manage drug shortages and improve financial performance.
In November 2010, CareFusion announced a global marketing relationship as the exclusive reseller of PHACTS pharmacy inventory management software and automation. Through this partnership, PHACTS expanded its base of customers by 50 percent to more than 200 customers.
"With the addition of PHACTS market-leading products to our portfolio, CareFusion is better positioned to help hospitals realize significant savings, including a reduction in medication inventory on-hand levels by up to 40 percent," said Tom Leonard, president of Medical Systems at CareFusion. "The acquisition will enable us to more directly integrate PHACTS capabilities into our core CareFusion Pyxis technologies and expand our portfolio to further strengthen our comprehensive, end-to-end medication management offering."
PHACTS products include both software and automation solutions for health systems and hospital pharmacies. With PHACTS software, health systems can track drug inventories in near real time across all pharmacy locations, gaining visibility that can help accelerate inventory turns, maintain stock at optimal levels and reduce waste from expired drugs – all resulting in lower medication costs. PHACTS automation helps hospitals efficiently package and label medications, applying barcodes that can improve accuracy at the bedside and helping to increase medication safety.
