Hacettepe University Oncology Hospital Introduces Omnicell i.v.STATION ONCO Robots to Chemotherapy Unit

IV Robotics Helps Increase Patient and Provider Safety During Compounding of Hazardous Chemotherapy Drugs in Turkey Healthcare Facility

Omnicell, Inc. today announced that Hacettepe University Oncology Hospital in Ankara, Turkey has implemented three i.v.STATION ONCO™ robots for the compounding of hazardous chemotherapy medications. One of Turkey’s largest chemotherapy centers, Hacettepe University’s Robotic Chemotherapy Compounding Unit serves nearly 120 patients per day, and estimates it will produce around 5,000 chemotherapy doses a month with the support of this added technology.

According to the Chief Physician Office, Hacettepe is constantly identifying ways to improve safety and efficiency. By leveraging robotics for sterile compounding of chemotherapy medications, the hospital will gain increased control over the quality of care delivered to patients.

As the first public institution in Turkey to provide healthcare services in compliance with Joint Commission International standards, Hacettepe is adding Omnicell’s IV compounding technology to support streamlined pharmacy operations and patient safety, helping to maintain its ranking as one of Turkey’s most prestigious university hospitals. In Hacettepe’s outpatient chemotherapy unit, the i.v.STATION ONCO promotes optimal patient safety through its ISO Class 5 environment and gravimetric controls. Analyzing the weights and volumes of specific ingredients verifies they are accurately selected and measured prior to compounding, thus reducing the risk of error. 

“As a regional leader in both care delivery and innovation for chemotherapy treatments, Hacettepe has a reputation for providing the highest level of patient safety,” said Rob Seim, president, Global Automation and Medication Adherence at Omnicell. “We’re honored to work with the hospital’s leaders and providers to further enhance that commitment to safety through our IV robotic automation.”
