With extensive professional backgrounds in hospital pharmacy, the founders of Ameridose were acutely aware of the need within hospital pharmacies for ready-to-use admixed preparations of superior quality. Their vision was shaped by firsthand knowledge of the challenging time demands and patient safety issues facing hospital pharmacists each day. As a result, their goal was to produce admixed preparations of the very highest quality and to deliver those preparations to hospital pharmacies quickly and reliably.
Early initiatives at Ameridose included the development of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to enable made-to-order production and extensive real-time stability studies to ensure preparation stability; this resulted in longer preparation shelf life for customers. Our hospital pharmacy customers benefitted through the alleviation of storage and waste issues, and Ameridose was increasingly viewed as a partner by its pharmacy customers.
Over the years that have followed, this unwavering attention to hospital pharmacist needs has made Ameridose the industry leader. Ameridose now provides the largest selection of sterile admixed and repackaged solutions to hospital pharmacies nationwide. Despite our size, senior management continues to make it a priority to review all customer comments and to challenge the status quo. As a result, we are constantly evaluating and implementing improvements in our processes with goals of enhanced efficiency, quality assurance, patient safety, service, and customer satisfaction.
State-licensed nationwide, Ameridose is an FDA and DEA registered manufacturer. Our facilities are custom designed and constructed with keen attention to environmental quality and control. Our preparations undergo rigid real-time stability studies using stability-indicating methodologies by third-party, independent FDA registered laboratories evaluating a wide range of criteria including stability and sterility. Ameridose maintains a robust pipeline of preparations in testing to support the steady stream of new offerings necessary to meet growing customer needs.
Ameridose has been an early adopter of innovative techniques that improve patient safety, such as TALL-man lettering and barcoding on labels for easy identification. We are driven to do everything in our power to help our hospital pharmacy customers provide the very best in patient care every day.
