McKesson Acquires Rosebud Solutions

April 2, 2008 – McKesson Corp. has acquired Rosebud Solutions LLC, a provider of software solutions to track and manage instruments, endoscopes and tissue implants for surgical services, as well as medical crash carts and mobile equipment.

“Better tracking and management of surgical instruments, tissues, implants and mobile medical equipment can improve operating room throughput, dramatically reduce new instrument purchases, and help improve patient safety by reducing delays on the operating table,” said Chris Bauleke, vice president and general manager of Resource Management solutions for McKesson Provider Technologies. “Since an efficient OR is critical to the profitable care delivery and financial performance of a healthcare organization, our customers are looking for ways to ensure patient safety, reduce case delays, and improve efficiency.”

The Rosebud Solutions software set helps central services/sterile processing departments and surgical services electronically manage, track and reduce waste for thousands of expensive surgical trays and instruments that are used in several locations throughout the hospital. The solutions also reportedly help hospitals manage regulatory requirements for safe tissue and implant management. For instance, surgical managers can determine the tissue implant inventory on-hand and expirations and in turn, they can record proper storage and reconstitution of these implants required by the Joint Commission.
