St. Paul, Minn., April 17, 2013 -- Smiths Medical, a leading global medical device manufacturer, announced an agreement today with Epic to develop connectivity between the company’s infusion systems and Epic’s Electronic Medical Records (EMR) system using Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) standard profiles to communicate, enabling an automatic flow of information for clinicians to access.
“Using the IHE frameworks allows us to join with other industry partners to develop a standardized method of communicating information and ultimately helps reduce medication errors,” said Tommy Johns, Vice President Global Product Management.
Infusion systems, such as Smiths Medical’s Medfusion® syringe pumps and CADD® ambulatory infusion pumps, are programmed by clinicians to provide patients with medication according to their therapy needs. The sophisticated systems, that include PharmGuard® medication safety software for use on a PC or via the web, allow pharmacists to develop drug libraries according to hospital-defined protocols, wirelessly deploy libraries to the pumps, wirelessly collect and manage patient therapy data, and track trends in compliance and medication dosing.
