Ivenix Demonstrates Infusion System with Enhanced Patient Safety at ASHP Meeting
November 28, 2017
Booth Presentation Explores Innovation Beyond Dose Error Reduction Systems
North Andover, MA, November 28, 2017—Ivenix will demonstrate its groundbreaking Infusion System designed to enhance patient safety and bring infusion delivery into the digital age at the American Society of Health System Pharmacists (ASHP) conference, booth #1461, in Orlando Dec. 3 – 7. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn and engage at a booth presentation by Ivyruth Andreica, PharmD, BSN, FISMP, Clinical & Medication Safety Pharmacist for Ivenix.
Making the most of pharmacy expertise, the Ivenix Infusion System provides specialized tools to increase medication expert engagement throughout the entire infusion process. These include web-based cross-departmental drug library collaboration to simplify updates, ensuring information reaches the bedside efficiently. Real-time surveillance of the infusion process keeps pharmacy teams apprised of drug library compliance and enhances departmental workflow management. A smartphone-like pump user interface and real-time dose guidance support accurate infusion programming.
“The Ivenix Infusion System is fundamentally different from any infusion technology on the market today,” says Susan Niemeier, MHA, BSN, RN, Ivenix Chief Nursing Officer. “Every year, infusion pumps are involved in more adverse events than almost any other medical technology. Ivenix addresses this problem from multiple perspectives to help ensure that infusions do no harm. We recognize that pharmacists are healthcare’s medication experts, and our infusion system enables hospitals to make the most of that expertise with tools that enable greater participation throughout the entire infusion process. That’s why we’re so excited to be demonstrating the technology at ASHP.”
Moving well beyond today’s smart pumps, the Ivenix Infusion System supports a hospital’s medication safety program through:
Patient-Centered Design that dramatically improves usability, infusion set-up efficiency and programming ease.
Integrated, Data-Driven Insights enabled by an advanced IT platform that securely manages infusion data and provides seamless interoperability with the EMR and other hospital information systems.
Adaptive Fluid Delivery that ensures accurate and consistent medication flow under all operating conditions, regardless of the bag height, backpressure and fluid viscosity.
“The Ivenix infusion System empowers pharmacists with important new tools to promote improved patient safety and streamline the infusion process,” says Ivyruth Andreica. “As a pharmacist, I feel this represents an important step forward for infusion delivery and truly helps underscore the theme of this year’s meeting–Creating the Future.”
Andreica’s presentation, Innovation Beyond Dose Error Reduction Systems, will take place at the Ivenix booth on Mon. Dec. 4 at 1:30 p.m., on Tues. Dec. 5 at 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., and on Wed. Dec. 6 at 11:30 a.m.
