BETHLEHEM, Pa., Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- With calls for greater efficiency, safety and an expanded use of electronic health records shaping the healthcare environment, interoperability and systems integration are taking on added importance in the healthcare marketplace.

B. Braun's Infusion Pumps, DoseTrac™ Infusion Management Software and DoseLink™ Interfaces successfully completed key portions of the Healthcare Information Technology Standards Panel (HITSP), a federally-recognized Interoperability Specifications test, at the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise 2010 Connectathon in Chicago in January.

The Connectathon is the healthcare information technology (IT) industry's largest interoperability testing event. Nearly 60 vendors tested more than 130 healthcare IT systems.

"The emphasis in the healthcare industry today is on developing healthcare systems that can interface, interoperate and have the ability to transmit patient and clinical information electronically to reduce errors and deliver more effective treatment to patients," said Scott Zaffrin, Manager, Connectivity Marketing & Operations for B. Braun Medical Inc. "Our suite of infusion system products is designed to do just that. We look forward to another opportunity to interact with healthcare professionals and demonstrate our solutions using the kind of clinical scenarios our customers face every day."

B. Braun will demonstrate the Outlook ® Safety Infusion System, DoseTrac™ and DoseLink

(B. Braun's IHE compliant HL7 interfaces) systems and its medication administration and electronic health record interoperability at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society's HIMSS10 Interoperability Showcase at booth 233 in the Atlanta Convention Center during the HIMSS Conference & Exhibition, March 1-4 in Atlanta.

Designed as a HIMSS Health Information Exchange (HIE)-based environment, the Showcase includes clinical scenarios enabled by the standards-based IHE technical framework and HITSP federally-recognized Interoperability Specifications.

B. Braun will demonstrate the interoperability of its DoseTrac™ Infusion Management Software, DoseLink™ Interfaces and Outlook® Safety Infusion Systems using two-way communication with numerous vendors including Cerner, Epic, GE Centricity, Draeger, Philips, Capsule and more.

B. Braun Infusion Pumps deliver critical IV medications to patients and communicate this infusion data to the company's DoseTrac™ Infusion Management Software. Infusion data is wirelessly communicated to the DoseTrac™ software, which collects and stores real-time infusion data, allowing caregivers to view it from any workstation. Its open architecture design and the use of its DoseLink™ IHE HL7 Compliant Interfaces allows it to interface with any hospital or pharmacy information management system. DoseTrac™ is the only software of its type to offer both real-time displays of infusion data as well as comprehensive retrospective reporting capabilities.
