By the numbers
We help customers reduce waste with product size optimization.
Based on hospitals analyzed, we found institutions benefited in these areas*:
Fentanyl (N = 37)
Hydromorphone (N = 36)
Morphine (N = 24)
Estimated waste event reductions
Estimated annual waste event reductions
Estimated annual time saved wasting*
Healthcare providers must discard any excess controlled substances if the quantity dispensed exceeds the prescribed dose. Hospital protocols may differ on how this procedure is carried out.
Data Ananlysis Process
By analyzing data from previous instances of waste in healthcare facilities, it is possible to calculate potential reductions by aligning product size with clinical practice.
*Data on file provided by real clients (Fentanyl Citrate Injection, USP N = 37, Hydromorphone HCl Injection, USP N = 36, Morphine Sulfate Injection, USP N = 24).

Simplist is associated with a 4x lower error rate* compared to traditional practice, including a cartridge-based syringe system3
*A prospective, multisite, observational study of IV push medication preparation and administration compared the error rates between ready-to-administer products and traditional practice, including a cartridge-based syringe system and vial and syringe. Simplist was the only RTA delivery system used in the study. Study limitations include only a select number of sites (3) and steps observed.
