B. Braun Medical's Outlook Pump
BETHLEHEM, PA – February 14, 2017 – B. Braun Medical Inc. has successfully completed systems integration of its Outlook® large-volume infusion pump with Iatric Systems Inc. Accelero Connect® integration software, enabling the pump to communicate with a number of EHR solutions, including MEDITECH. Iatric Systems is a third-party healthcare technology solution provider with capabilities in EHR optimization, interoperability, patient privacy, and analytics.
B.
