|Alaris® System Named 2015 Best In KLAS for Smart Pumps|
The 2015 Best in
"We are proud to receive Best in
The Alaris System is a "smart" IV pump that contains advanced technology and software to notify clinicians when an infusion is outside of the normal range, which helps avoid infusion medication errors. The Alaris System features a unique modular design that combines a single point-of-care unit featuring Guardrails Suite MX safety software with large volume pump(s), patient controlled analgesia (PCA), respiratory monitoring through end-tidal carbon dioxide (EtCO2) and/or, pulse oximetry measurement of oxygen saturation (SpO2), syringe and barcoding capabilities to help protect every type of infusion.
The Alaris System can be wirelessly pre-populated with infusion order parameters directly from the hospital's EHR. Instead of manually programming the pump using the keypad, the pump is pre-populated with the patient's medication order after scanning the barcodes on the patient's ID band, on the medication to be administered and on the smart pump. Automatically programming the pump with the patient's medication order from the verified physician order in the EHR helps ensure accurate IV medication administration and documentation, and reduces opportunities for human error.
