BD Reaches 100 Mark with Infusion Pump Operability

July 26, 2016

Leading global medical technology company, BD, recently announced that over 100 hospitals and healthcare institutions have integrated the company’s electronic medical record (EMR) interoperability solutions for its Alaris™ System intelligent infusion pump platform.

The Alaris System allows for bi-directional EMR interoperability between a hospital’s EMR and Alaris infusion pumps. The infusion pump system makes it possible for nurses to pre-populate an Alaris pump with a pharmacist-verified physician order via barcode scan. Through this, hospitals can reduce any infusion programming errors. To date, BD is the first and only company to have hospital customer sites performing bi-directional interoperability with EMRs for both large volume pumps and syringe pumps.

"The Alaris System is a proven infusion platform with EMR connectivity used in more sites than any other infusion pump," said Mike Garrison, vice president and general manager of worldwide Infusion Solutions for BD. "Not only are we 'live' at more than 100 customer facilities, our customers have typically implemented interoperability across their whole hospital, including ambulatory centers, providing an improved continuum of care for their patients."

In addition, the Alaris EMR interoperability feature also allows for data to be passed wirelessly from the pump back to the EMR. Once transferred, the information is then validated by a nurse who then commits it to the patient record, making documentation easier and infusion records more accurate.

The Alaris System was also awarded with the title of 2015 Best in Klas for Smart Pumps by KLAS, an independent organization that monitors health care information technology performance, earlier this year.

Ensuring accurate infusion administration and recording is vital to patient care. That is why it is important for hospitals and healthcare facilities to keep their infusion pump systems well maintained and up-to-date.
