Pharmacy Stars Partners with EdgeX to Enhance Pharmacy Compounding Efficiency and Compliance

Pharmacy Stars, a leading provider of compounding software solutions, has announced a strategic partnership with EdgeX to integrate advanced environmental tracking and monitoring capabilities into its Compounding360 platform. This collaboration, unveiled at the ASHP Pharmacy Futures meeting, aims to streamline compounding processes, improve safety, and enhance efficiency in pharmacy operations.

This partnership marks a significant reunion of the former co-founders of Pharmacy OneSource, who initially joined forces back in 2005. Now, 19 years later, they are coming together once again to deliver a modern, integrated, and streamlined approach to compounding compliance.

EdgeX provides a complete hospital tracking system that can be easily installed and deployed within hours, requiring no IT resources. The system features highly reliable, self-healing wireless networks that ensure consistent performance and minimal maintenance.

EdgeX’s tracking tags, the size of a dime, enable hospitals to track, monitor, and evaluate equipment, people, and resources instantly. This innovation makes compliance monitoring easier, more efficient, and cost-effective.

With EdgeX’s seamless integration into Compounding360, pharmacies can now automatically document critical environmental parameters such as temperature, pressure, and humidity in real-time. This integration eliminates the need for manual readings and recordings, ensuring an environment conducive to compounding sterile preparations.

“We’re excited to partner with EdgeX to provide our customers with cutting-edge tracking and monitoring solutions,” said Keith Streckenbach, CEO of Pharmacy Stars. “By integrating EdgeX’s technology into Compounding360, we support our customers’ compliance requirements while significantly reducing the workload on pharmacy staff, enhancing both patient safety and operational efficiency.”

One of the standout features of EdgeX is the speed and ease of installation. EdgeX’s Network Anchors and Sensors peel-and-stick anywhere they are needed without the constraints of cables for power or network connectivity. Plus the EdgeX Network is cellular-connected. This means there is no need for IT or facilities support, making it extremely affordable to implement and maintain.

“EdgeX is committed to transforming hospital operations through innovative tracking solutions,” said Tim Gibbons, CEO of EdgeX. “Our integration with Compounding360 offers a powerful tool for pharmacies to maintain compliance effortlessly while focusing on delivering high-quality patient care.”

As part of the strategic partnership, EdgeX now offers its customers Compounding360, the #1 compounding compliance quality management system with the integrated comprehensive library of ACPE accredited sterile, non-sterile and hazardous compounding and designated person training for compounders.  

The announcement of this partnership at the ASHP Pharmacy Futures meeting exemplifies the forward-thinking approach of both companies. By leveraging their respective expertise and technologies, Pharmacy Stars and EdgeX aim to set new standards for safety, efficiency, and quality in pharmacy operations.
