I’ve been revisiting some of the pharmacy technology that I’ve covered over the past few years. Partly to see what advances have been made, if any, and partly to see if some of the smaller guys I’ve come across are still in business.
PlusDelta Technologies is an interesting little company that I discovered at the ASHP Summer Meeting in Denver in 2011. I was impressed with their vision, and with their use of mobile technology to track medications throughout the distribution process. At the time the company had a small suite of products, but as I sit here looking at their website it appears that they’ve whittled it down to just one: Pharmtrac.PD. Focus people, that’s called focus.
Pharmtrac.PD appears to have matured quite a bit over the last couple of years. The video below is quite new, posted in April of this year. The first minute is fluff, so you might want to fast forward to about the 1:15 mark if you’re in a hurry to see the product in action. The end of the video is also meaningful as it gives you a peak at how important PlusDelta things analytics are.
The concept is similar to MedBoard, but only on the surface. By utilizing mobile technology, PlusDelta has taken things a step higher.
