Hospira MedNet™ Portal Safety Software Benchmarking System Debuts at HIMSS
Date:2/23/2011

ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Hospira, Inc. (NYSE: HSP), a leading provider of clinical information and medication delivery technologies, today announced the unveiling of the Hospira MedNet™ Portal at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Annual Conference and Exhibition in Orlando. This web-based application will provide healthcare institutions with advanced medication error reporting and patient safety benchmarking capabilities. It will be available as an add-on feature to the award-winning Hospira MedNet safety software.

Hospira MedNet Portal, on demonstration at HIMSS booth 6449, improves a hospital's ability to monitor, benchmark and evaluate intravenous (I.V.) drug administration practices. With this new technology, healthcare institutions will have access to side-by-side, blinded comparisons of their own safety software drug libraries and infusion performance data with the same information from other institutions. Users can look at data by hospital size, institution type or specific clinical care areas to help them develop and refine their drug library. The software system also allows clinicians and hospital staff to view internal and external peer benchmarking reports to drive improved I.V. medication safety and to help enhance clinical and operational outcomes. Hospira MedNet Portal supports continuous quality improvement efforts by helping users analyze key aspects of their drug administration process against best practices and by providing a more complete picture of clinical performance indicators.

"Our hospital customers are telling us that they're not just buying infusion pumps, they're also investing in the safety data that comes from the infusion devices," said Richard Nevin, vice president, Medication Management Systems, U.S., Hospira. "Hospira MedNet Portal will help give every facility a better view of their medication administration and safety performance, allowing them to benchmark against how other institutions are practicing medicine, and driving safety and continuous quality improvement programs."

Hospira MedNet Portal will be available as a value-added feature for healthcare institutions using Hospira MedNet safety software with their Hospira infusion technologies, such as the Plum A+™ with Hospira MedNet safety software, a proven and scaleable infusion pump system; the technologically advanced Symbiq™ infusion system with built-in Hospira MedNet; and the market-leading LifeCare PCA™ pump with Hospira MedNet. Hospira is also the U.S. leader in I.V. clinical integration of infusion pumps with electronic health record systems.

The company is targeting mid-year for making Hospira MedNet Portal available to Hospira MedNet customers.
