On October 2-3, 2013, Cleveland Clinic hosted the first-ever USA edition of APOTECACommunity, the international scientific network of APOTECAchemo users. Representatives of all major US cancer centers that have already adopted the System for the automatic preparation of sterile IV therapies took part to the event.
Robotic IV compounding is a growing area of interest in the US hospital pharmacy. At Loccioni humancare we believe that a continuous dialogue between users and developers could help building confidence on how robotics can improve quality and efficiency in pharmacy practices.
That dialogue is the core of APOTECACommunity. Since its inception, the Community has gathered every year hospital pharmacy professionals to share ideas on how to make APOTECA System even safer and faster.
Ideas coming from the USA meeting will fuel the continuous research and development process that lies underneath APOTECAchemo and deliver an annual upgrade of the System based on the users needs.
That’s all part of the sound approach to innovation we adopted at Loccioni humancare.
