The Connectathon is the healthcare information technology (IT) industry's largest interoperability testing event. More than 130 healthcare IT systems were tested by the nearly 70 vendors present.

"This is a critical achievement for B. Braun," said Scott Zaffrin, Manager, Infusion Systems Connectivity for B. Braun Medical Inc. "The emphasis in healthcare today, within the industry and the Obama Administration, is on developing integrated healthcare systems that interface with other systems and have the ability to transmit patient information electronically to reduce errors and deliver more effective treatment to patients. Our suite of infusion system products is designed to do just that."

B. Braun will demonstrate the Outlook(R), DoseTrac(TM) and DoseLink(TM) (their IHE compliant interfaces) systems and its medication administration and electronic health record interoperability at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society's HIMSS09 Interoperability Showcase at booth # 7750 in the North Hall of McCormick Place during the HIMSS Conference & Exhibition, April 4-9 in Chicago.

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

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

"We look forward to the opportunity to interact with other healthcare professionals and demonstrate our solutions in the kind of clinical scenarios our customers face every day," said Zaffrin.

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