HopeHealth the First in South Carolina to Implement AccuVax® and AccuShelf® to Safeguard Vaccines, Medications, and Supplies and Further Enhance Patient Safety

HopeHealth will leverage TruMed’s products to protect its vaccines, medications, and supplies and further enhance patient safety.

FLORENCE, S.C., Oct. 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The longstanding organization in South Carolina, HopeHealth, has become the first in the state of South Carolina to select TruMed® Systems, a vaccine and inventory management company, to assist them in their continued efforts to deliver safe, high-quality care to the people in their communities.

HopeHealth will leverage TruMed’s AccuVax and AccuShelf solutions, which will safeguard its vaccine inventory, including COVID-19 vaccine supply, perform seamless transfers to sites and accurately track each dose from receipt to administration. The AccuVax Vaccine Management System protects vaccines with ideal temperature control and saves time with workflow efficiencies, while AccuShelf Inventory Management streamlines inventory control for all medications and supplies throughout multiple HopeHealth clinics. HopeHealth always strives to improve patient health by providing quality primary health care services to their community. With AccuVax and AccuShelf requiring confirmation of the correct dose to the correct patient, safety is further enhanced for every one of HopeHealth’s patients.

“As we continue our commitment to our patients, the AccuVax and AccuShelf units will ensure precise storage conditions for vaccines, prevent loss, and provide an additional layer of protection against medical errors. These units will be a great resource and will enhance the delivery of safe and effective care to our patients,” said Dr. Ed Behling, Chief Medical Officer. “TruMed’s products also allow us to build on our quality and safety efforts by safeguarding vaccines for effective immunizations, standardizing workflows for efficiency and safety, accurately tracking down to the dose and reducing loss and waste for cost savings.”


There are nine HopeHealth locations currently using a combination of AccuVax and AccuShelf products daily. In addition to supporting their daily patient care, AccuVax and AccuShelf are being used to support COVID-19 immunization efforts throughout the South Carolina communities.
