"The I.V. clinical integration of infusion pumps with electronic health record systems has been shown to decrease the time it takes for nurses to start a new infusion by at least 27 percent,"[1] said Richard Nevin, vice president, Medication Management Systems, U.S., Hospira. "Using I.V. clinical integration to link a smart infusion pump with EHRs helps deliver the trifecta for hospitals: safety, efficiency and financial benefits."

The following multimedia assets provide additional information about how I.V. clinical integration can enhance patient safety, clinician workflow and cost prevention efforts:

  • Why I.V. Clinical Integration of Infusion Pumps is So Smart: This infographic illustrates the functionality and benefits of I.V. clinical integration with Hospira MedNet™ safety software, including visuals that reflect the number of steps that can be removed from the medication delivery process.
  • Symbiq™ Infusion Pump Overview Video: A quick look at Hospira's newly enhanced Symbiq device -- recently given the first general infusion pump clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) under the new 510(k) guidelines -- and the role it plays in I.V. clinical integration.
  • IVclinicalintegration.com: An online hub of visual resources, case studies and news about I.V. clinical integration.

Using I.V. clinical integration to integrate medication management technologies with EHRs enables seamless, near real-time sharing of patient and infusion information between the hospital's clinical information systems, medication pumps and other devices. Intravenous or I.V. medication administration is crucial to the health of patients, as 90 percent of hospital patients receive an infusion as part of their treatments, and 56 percent of all medication errors are associated with I.V. medications.[2],[3] Improving the process through clinical integration can help clinicians positively impact their patients' overall health and safety.
