HealthFirst delivers Crash Cart Automation Replenishment (CCAR) for practices and drives realized savings, reduces waste, and offers unit-dose medication ordering. The CCAR program also leverages OnTraq technology. This online compliance and account management tool help minimize compliance risk and automates all crash cart needs.


A 2017 survey of medical professionals identified four major challenges in crash cart medication maintenance:

  • RISK – Without proper cart maintenance, necessary medications might not be available in the event of an emergency.
  • PROCESS – It’s difficult to manage the contents and status of multiple crash carts.
  • TIME – Manually checking and ordering medications isn’t efficient for clinic staff members.
  • COST – Most individuals surveyed had little knowledge of actual costs

Not only could someone’s life be in danger, but the organization could face high-risk exposure. After all, crash cart preparedness isn’t optional. It’s a directive from the Joint Commission for accreditation.
