Smart Pumps 2007

| Read Time: Unknown

There is a keen interest around the performance of smart infusion pump technology, due to the swirl of press relating to medication errors. In its most recent study Preventing Medication Errors (July 2006), the Institute of Medicine (IMO) reported that “when all types of errors are taken into account, a hospital patient can expect on average to be subjected to more than one medication error each day.” The IMO goes on to suggest that hospitals “make greater use of information technology in prescribing and dispensing medications … including the adoption of smart infusion pumps."

The Smart Pumps 2007 report introduces a new KLAS research focus in the Medical Equipment area, and features four vendor products: B. Braun Outlook, Baxter COLLEAGUE, Cardinal Health Alaris System (formerly known as Medley), and Hospira Plum A+/MedNet.
