ASHP Midyear Meeting: The largest gathering of pharmacists in the world
BETHLEHEM, PA – December 4, 2015 – B. Braun Medical Inc. will exhibit its robust portfolio of pharmacy products and reveal its latest technology at this year’s American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) 50th Midyear Clinical Meeting at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, LA, Dec. 6-10.
B. Braun Medical will again be a sponsor of the Intelligent Pharmacy™ Pavilion – where meeting participants can experience healthcare scenarios in various simulation rooms, following a patient from pharmaceutical order entry to delivery and listening to case studies as actors demonstrate the latest technologies.
In the pavilion’s “pharmacy” and “NICU”, B. Braun Medical will showcase its new micro compounder – APEX™ – used in conjunction with its own clinical support software TPN Manager (both coming soon). Through its browser-based TPN Manager software, APEX enables healthcare providers to enter parenteral nutrition orders at the patient’s bedside using an iPad or other tablet computer. Orders will be electronically transmitted directly to the APEX Compounder, thereby helping to reduce manual programming errors, eliminate transcription errors, and expedite patient care.
Also in the “pharmacy”, the company will demonstrate its PharmView application, DoseTrac® infusion management software. In the “nursing unit”, B. Braun Medical will demonstrate the features of its second-generation, large-volume Infusomat® Space Pump, including its AutoComplete™ Integrated EMR functions (auto-programming, auto-documentation and auto-notification).
“Our show booth and our simulations in the Intelligent Pharmacy Pavilion provide excellent opportunities for attendees to see firsthand how B. Braun’s product and technology portfolio can help improve patient and clinician safety and enhance healthcare outcomes,” said Rick Williamson, Vice President of Pharmaceutical Marketing at B. Braun Medical.
In addition, the company has sponsored two Continuing Professional Education (CPE) symposia: Phil Ayers, BS, Pharm.D., BCNSP, FASHP, Baptist Health Systems will present “ASPEN Parenteral Nutrition Safety Consensus Recommendations: Minimizing Errors with Technology.” The presentation will take place on Tuesday, Dec. 8th, 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. in Room 384, Level 3 in the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. Joseph Coyne RPh, Coyne Consulting LLC and Martha Polovich PhD, RN, AOCN, Georgia State University will present “Ready for USP <800>?
