Description

Integration of "smart" infusion pumps with other technology such as computerized physician order entry (CPOE) and electronic health records (EHRs) is a huge step forward in reducing pump programming errors and enhancing safe administration of IV medications. This activity will provide you with key information on how to prepare your organization for auto-programming of IV infusions and optimization of closed-loop technologies. An overview of the planning and implementation process in two different EHR systems will be provided, paying particular attention to the human factors, technology readiness, environment, and system challenges faced during the process. Current issues affecting the use of integrated smart pump technology will also be explored as well as the importance of using device-generated data to evaluate practice patterns, alarm fatigue, and organizational culture of safety.
