Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota becomes first pediatric hospital in U.S. to develop interoperability between infusion pumps and electronic medical records

MINNEAPOLIS, April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota announced it has successfully implemented a new automated system which is significantly reducing medication errors by wirelessly transmitting data between patients' infusion pumps and electronic medical records (EMR).

Children's partnered with medical technology company, CareFusion, and EMR provider, Cerner, to create the new wireless system.

Eliminating the need for calculating medication doses by hand and manually programming the pump removes opportunities for human error. The new system also provides another added safeguard by sending out alerts if it detects a medication error – warning medical practitioners if dosages or medications are inaccurate, being administered too soon or too late, or if the patient's doctor has altered or canceled medications.

"Children are particularly vulnerable to medication errors because dosages must be carefully tailored by weight," said Bobbie Carroll , senior director of patient safety and informatics at Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota.
