RIVA™, a fully automated IV compounding system, is used by hospital pharmacies to automatically and accurately prepare IV syringes and bags. By automating the preparation of IV syringes and bags, RIVA addresses the issues of safety for the patient and the pharmacy technician, efficiency and effectiveness in the pharmacy and the challenges of a changing regulatory environment.
RIVA allows hospital pharmacies to compound aseptic preparations in a United States Pharmacopeia USP<797> environment while outputting admixtures in either syringes or bags. The automation of repetitive and complex tasks reduces the incidence of errors and contamination. RIVA can prepare both chemotherapeutic and non-chemotherapeutic doses.
Whether your main focus is to improve the safety of IV admixtures, improve the efficiency and effectiveness of pharmacy operations, or meet regulatory compliance, RIVA addresses your unique concerns and challenges.
RIVA enhances the care of patients and health of your pharmacy team by improving the safety and accuracy of IV admixture compounding. By using state of the art safety features and practices, detailed electronic auditing, and integration to current hospital systems, RIVA ensures that hazardous and non-hazardous doses are accurate for pediatric, neonatal, and adult patients.
Efficiency and Effectiveness
RIVA will save your pharmacy money and allow you to redeploy work resources by integrating into your pharmacy, completing orders rapidly, reducing drug and consumable waste, and lowering the need for pre-filled admixtures.
RIVA is designed to meet USP<797>, NIOSH, OSHA, and other regulatory requirements. In addition, RIVA provides a complete electronic audit trail of all prepared doses.
