Infusion Insight: Helping Technical Teams Keep Patients Safe
May 29, 2018
An Infusion System Engineered for Engineers
Despite all their advanced technology, the performance of today’s smart infusion pumps is only as strong as their weakest link. Whether it’s out of date software, mechanical malfunction, battery failure or security breach, a single problem compromises the ability of a pump to deliver IV medications safely and effectively when needed—and if a working pump asset cannot be located, to deliver them at all. That’s why the role of Healthcare Technology Management (HTM) Professionals in ensuring the health of every infusion pump day-in and day-out is so crucial—otherwise all the leading edge pump features in the world won’t have any meaningful impact to patient care.
Ivenix believes that maintaining every individual infusion pump for peak performance doesn’t have to mean managing each pump individually—hunting down devices and taking them out of service, viewing each pump’s error logs and battery status, downloading software updates and testing pumps to make sure they are ready for use. That’s why we built an innovative infusion pump platform that centralizes infusion pump management and enables busy clinical engineers to deploy, monitor and maintain devices across an entire fleet.
Imagine deploying infusion pump software updates enterprise-wide with a single click, monitoring the utilization and location of all pump assets through one comprehensive interface, remotely surveilling pump performance to identify a potential mechanical failure before it occurs, tracking battery health and much more. Ivenix helps clinical engineers streamline workflow and deliver the intuitive tools each member of the technical team needs to excel. The result is that clinical engineers can do more to maintain the fleet and improve the infusion delivery process in less time.
The Ivenix Infusion System’s IT-powered platform provides a comprehensive system dashboard, coupled with a sophisticated location-awareness system. This “infusion command center” enables clinical engineers to monitor and pinpoint every pump’s location to maximize utilization. Near real-time access to service logs provides insight into pump performance to support predictive pump maintenance and remote troubleshooting to keep pumps in ongoing service.
All this supports HTM professionals to make infusion management a little easier and helps hospitals ensure pumps are operating safely and efficiently and that a pump is available whenever needed to deliver the IV therapy so crucial to patient care.
