Kit Check Announces Strategic Additions to Leadership Team

Leading automated medication management company brings on industry
experts to increase impact amongst hospitals across the United States

WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kit
Check
, the leader in automated medication management solutions for
hospitals, today announced new appointments to its leadership team to
help foster the company’s continuous growth and increase its recognition
amongst hospitals across the country. The appointments cement the
company’s focus on improving medication management processes within the
hospital as well as amplify their continued efforts to decrease drug
diversion.

As the opioid epidemic continues to ravish communities across the
country, Kit Check is focused on helping hospitals and healthcare
networks achieve 100% diversion audits by utilizing its Bluesight
for Controlled Substances (BCS)
software. BCS uses machine learning
and artificial intelligence (AI) to identify anomalous behavior and curb
the theft of controlled substances, such as opioids, within the
hospital. Currently adopted in over 60 hospitals, BCS saves hospitals
time and money, while also creating a safer environment for patients.

“Since Kit Check was founded, we have focused on identifying various
ways hospital pharmacies can leverage technology to improve their
operations. Rather quickly, we realized the unmet need of diversion
auditing, so we developed Bluesight,” said Kevin MacDonald, chief
executive officer and co-founder of Kit Check. “Today, we are at a
turning point in the industry where a social epidemic is finding its way
into our hospital systems. Our mission now is to further educate and
help hospitals combat this issue with our technology. By bringing on
smart, strategic executives to the table, we can better underscore the
importance of medication management and diversion detection to improve
efficiencies and keep patients and our communities safe.”

The industry experience and fresh perspectives of the appointees shine a
light on Kit Check’s dedication to growing its customer base and
bringing the latest technologies to hospital pharmacies. Joining Kit

Langan, Chief Marketing Officer; Doug Zurawski, Pharm.D., Senior Vice
