On the 25th anniversary of the first RIVA announcement in
Gaspar DeViedma, Health Robotics' Executive Vice President stated: "It is not unexpected that after Health Robotics reached 500 global installations and 80-90% global market share [with its open IV consumables design for the vast majority of IV Bags, Syringes, etc.], some large industry players such as BD, Fresenius Kabi,
Just as an example, Fresenius Kabi [after their 4-year old failed RIVA installation], acquired semi-automated MDS and selectively market it in some countries while of course requiring separate laminar airflow hoods or isolators for its operation: http://www.health-robotics.com/en/competition/ivstation-onco-vs-fresenius-pharmahelp
In parallel, Loccioni and most of the individuals [management and salespeople] that were responsible for the now-settled Devon Robotics' litigation with hospitals are attempting to sell a copy of the old semi-automated CytoCare, by changing its label to APOTECAchemo, with an "apples and oranges" comparison available at: http://www.health-robotics.com/en/competition/ivstation-onco-vs-loccioni-apoteca
Health Robotics will continue to add/or update side-by-side competitive analysis comparisons on an ongoing basis in a continuous effort to make buyers beware.
About Health Robotics:
Founded in 2006 and now reaching 80% total IV Robots market share in the world [including over 90% the Oncology Robots global market], Health Robotics is the undisputed leading supplier of life-critical intravenous medication robots, providing almost 500 hospital installations in 5 continents with the only fully-integrated Robotics-based technology, IV Workflow, and manual compounding software automation solutions. Health Robotics' second generation products [i.v.STATION, i.v.SOFT, and i.v.STATION ONCO] have been found [through scientific and peer-reviewed studies,,] to greatly contribute to ease hospitals' growing pressures to improve patient safety, increase throughput, and contain costs,. Through the effective and efficient production of sterile, accurate, tamper-evident and ready-to-administer IVs, Health Robotics' medical devices and integrated workflow solutions help hospitals eliminate life-threatening drug and diluent exchange errors, improve drug potency, decrease other medical mistakes and sterility risks, work more efficiently,, reduce waste and controlled substances' diversion, reduce pharmacy technician upper-limb injuries, and diminish the gap between rising patient volume/acuity and scarce nursing and pharmacy staff.
