Smart Pumps 2008

August 28, 2008

While all vendors claim to significantly increase patient safety, are they able to deliver on that promise? What distinctions, if any, exist among the vendors and their offerings? What are the hurdles in product adoption and nurse compliance? What advancements in smart pump technology is the market demanding?
