Ivenix Wins 2020 MedTech Breakthrough Award For Best Technology Solution in Drug Delivery
Fourth annual awards program recognizes outstanding innovation in health and medical technology products, companies
BOSTON – May 26, 2020 – Ivenix Inc., a medical technology company with the vision to eliminate infusion-related patient harm, today announced it has been awarded “Best New Drug Delivery Solution” by MedTech Breakthrough, an independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global health and medical technology markets.
The “Best New Drug Delivery Solution” award recognizes the Ivenix Infusion System, an innovative infusion system and smart pump designed to enhance patient safety and fundamentally transform infusion delivery. The award follows an outstanding year for Ivenix, which included receiving its 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
In designing its infusion system, Ivenix directly addressed the industry’s call to action to improve the safety of infusion pumps by rethinking every aspect of medication delivery to improve outcomes and prevent IV-related medication errors.
Ivenix’s infusion system was designed with a superior user interface that’s intuitive and able to anticipate input errors. Onboard safeguards help reduce infusion errors by defaulting to the drug library and identify incompatible drugs on the pump. Additionally, the patented pumping technology focuses on delivering complex medications with measured flow that maximizes safety. It compensates for external conditions such as bag height, back pressure and fluid viscosity to ensure accurate medication delivery. And it protects patients from uncontrolled flow, a continued cause of patient harm. Essentially, its innovative design and architecture has set a new standard in infusion delivery.
“Ivenix embodies the spirit of the MedTech Breakthrough Awards by completely transforming and improving the way infusions are delivered,” said James Johnson, managing director, MedTech Breakthrough. “Ivenix has worked with industry and academic leaders as well as patient safety organizations to address the most pressing needs in infusion systems, and the Ivenix Infusion System represents a significant step forward that will deliver benefits for patients and providers globally. We are thrilled to recognize Ivenix in this year’s MedTech Breakthrough Awards program and we extend our sincere congratulations to the entire Ivenix team on their well-deserved industry recognition.”
The mission of the MedTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of health and medical technology categories, including robotics, telehealth, mHealth, medical devices, and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 3,750 nominations from over 15 different countries throughout the world.
“We started out knowing that in order to solve today’s medication safety concerns, we needed to think differently. To build a better infusion pump, we recognized that we had to address the root causes of IV medication errors,” said Susan Niemeier, MHA, BSN, RN, Chief Nursing Officer at Ivenix. “We set out to change the way infusions were delivered by reimagining the entire infusion delivery process from end-to-end. We created a system to make infusions safer and more efficient, and we’re honored to now be recognized for this achievement.”
