Healthcare Technology/ Robotics in Healthcare:- Health Robotics announced its second consecutive quarter’s record-breaking results, as reported by our sales channel partner Health Robotics Canada Inc. (HRCI) since Health Robotics S.r.l. upgraded its American distribution channels this year. HRCI’s impressive results included new North American contracts for 4 i.v.STATION, 4 i.v.SOFT, and 3 I.V. Room of the Future projects, bringing Health Robotics’ 2010 first semester total to 26 new American contracted installations, compared to 1 new contract announced by all of our direct competitors combined within the same 6-month period, and to zero contracts signed by our prior North American distribution channels during the entire 2009 year.
“We had an outstanding second consecutive quarter of operations in the USA and Canada including the first-ever American i.v.STATION contracts at a Pediatric hospital and an Outsourcing Pharmacy; the first worldwide contract for i.v.SOFT at a Pediatric hospital; and the first i.v.Room of the Future agreement at a regional hospital network (IDN). Combined with international results, we have now reached 105 contracted installations around the world. Due to the record demand for both i.v.STATION and i.v.SOFT, HRCI will close down this Summer its Early-Adopter discount programs for these two products, self-constraining future 3Q North American sales to five extra units (each) of i.v.STATION and i.v.SOFT Assist for installation in 4Q2010, with the remainder of future sales contracts to be scheduled for 2011 installation slots. We expect our upgraded North American sales channel partners to significantly add additional new contracted installations to the implementation backlog during 3Q2010” stated Werner Rainer, Health Robotics’ CEO.
New contracts for installations of 4 i.v.STATION robots were signed by The Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Long Beach Memorial Hospital, Miller Children’s Hospital, and finally Health Robotics’ first I.V. Outsourcing customer: Pharmacie Linda Frayne & John DiGenova (Montreal). All of these robots are scheduled to “go-live” before the end of 2010, as Health Robotics has now achieved the ability to move to a standard and more streamlined implementation work-plan and schedule, made possible by the results and experience gathered by earlier i.v.STATION Beta Tests in Europe and the United States of America.
Additionally, Ochsner Clinic Foundation, Sutter Health-Sacramento Sierra Region, and USC University Hospital signed 3 new exclusive contracts for the I.V. Room of the Future, including their respective Chief Pharmacy Officers participation in Health Robotics’ Scientific Advisory Board, where they will shortly join The Cleveland Clinic Foundation.
Finally, 4 new contracts for installations of i.v.SOFT Assist, Profile, and Label+ workflow software automation modules were executed by Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, Ochsner Clinic Foundation, U Mass Medical Center, and USC University Hospital. These new i.v.SOFT installations are to follow in 3Q2010 the already in-progress Beta-Tests installations announced last April for both Chemotherapy and for Non-Hazardous IVs, and to be completed over the next few months at Brigham & Women’s Hospital, The Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Duke University Medical Center, University of Chicago Medical Center, and the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.
