CareFusion Alaris System to be Made Compatible with Epic’s EMRJune 25, 2012
California-based medical device manufacturer, CareFusion Corporation announced earlier this week that it will be making its infusion pump system compatible with Epic System Corporation’s electronic medical record (EMR). The medical device manufacturer said that they have agreed to develop a bi-directional connectivity between the Alaris infusion pump system and the EMR platform, enabling clinicians to remotely access and pre-populate the infusion pump orders.
The integration will “transform health information technologyinto a strategic tool to drive improvements to both patient care and safety,” said Darren Dworkin, Senior VP for Enterprise Information Systems and Chief Information Officer at Cedars-Sinai Health System.
The collaboration intends to minimize the risk of IV medication errors that can occur during manual infusion programming. Both companies aim to improve clinician workflow and reduce duplicate reporting with the development of their new infusion pump-EMR platform.
“This agreement with Epic builds on the recent progress we have made across CareFusion to improve device interoperability and represents yet another way CareFusion helps hospitals bridge the gap between medical devices and HIT systems,” said J.C. Kyrillos, Senior Vice President and General Manager of CareFusion’s Infusion Systems business.
With the increasing need for improving patient care and safety, it is essential for hospitals and health care facilities to only use well-serviced infusion pump systems such as Carefusion’s Alaris pumps.
