ESO, a data and software company serving emergency medical services (EMS), fire departments and hospitals, today announced it has entered into an exclusive partnership with NarcBoxTM to sell both the physical boxes and software required to manage controlled substances. NarcBox products will directly integrate with ESO Electronic Health Record (EHR) to provide purchase through administration tracking.
“The DEA rules regarding narcotics and controlled substance distribution are changing in 2019,” said Dr. Brent Myers, Chief Medical Officer for ESO. “This will have a significant impact on agencies and departments across the entire country. We want to be ahead of the curve on changes coming to our industry. This partnership will make sure our customers are prepared for upcoming rule changes in how controlled substances are stored, tracked and accounted. NarcBox has a sophisticated, modern solution that is aligned with our mission to improve community health and safety.”
NarcBox is the leading provider of a complete, real-time, digitally-based narcotic and controlled substance security, tracking and medication administration system. The company provides boxes that come in a variety of sizes and can be placed at a station or in a vehicle. Key features of the NarcBox products include:
All information is transmitted via vehicle or station wi-fi to the NarcBox secured server.
Three different entry methods allow for increased security and quick access: 5-digit PIN, RFID card and biometric finger scan. Single or dual-person entry with dual authentication can be used for additional security and state compliance.
Detailed time, date and medication stamped information recorded in real-time for each individual access.
“This is an exciting partnership for us,” said Brandon Hodges, CEO of NarcBox. “ESO is the largest software provider to EMS agencies and fire departments, so this gives us an opportunity to provide a product broadly across the industry that will help with out-of-pharmacy diversion deterrence and reduce risk and liability for providers.”
