SAN DIEGO, June 15, 2023-- Today, PrecisePK, a global leader in Bayesian Model-Informed Precision Dosing (MIPD) software, proudly announces its partnership with Hospital Universitari Mutua Terrassa, marking a significant milestone as their first Spanish customer. This collaboration solidifies PrecisePK's position as a preferred provider of therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) solutions for vancomycin AUC dosing and many other therapeutic areas, enabling hospitals to deliver the highest level of patient care.
"PrecisePK has not only helped decentralize our clinical pharmacokinetics services but also improved our clinical decisions and workflow efficiency at the patient bedside. It has allowed us to expand our portfolio of pharmacokinetic services, positioning us as a reference pharmacy service in Spain."
Genís Castells, PharmD, an experienced hospital pharmacist leading TDM at Hospital Universitari Mutua Terrassa, expressed his satisfaction with the partnership. Hospital pharmacy is one of the hospital's critical areas of focus that has been significantly enhanced by adopting PrecisePK's cutting-edge Bayesian MIPD software.
By replacing outdated and limited software with PrecisePK's comprehensive dosing solutions, Hospital Universitari Mutua Terrassa has experienced a remarkable transformation in its dosing practices. The user-friendly interface and advanced features of PrecisePK's software have empowered healthcare professionals to make informed decisions based on patient-specific factors, optimizing medication dosages and improving patient outcomes. The Bayesian dosing method also allows for one randomized level blood draw instead of timing for the trough to occur. Patients' predictive serum level graph, dosage history, and serum drug level are all visible on one dashboard, assisting pharmacists with defining the best strategy to reach therapeutic targets.
"We are delighted to partner with Hospital Universitari Mutua Terrassa and contribute to their mission of delivering exceptional patient care," says Katherine Ninh, Operations and Accounts Manager at PrecisePK. "Our innovative Bayesian MIPD software allows for updated PK/PD research studies to be accurately applied at the bedside. We aim to establish a new standard of care in Spain, ensuring patient safety through personalized dosing."
