B. Braun Medical to Display its Innovative Synchronized Intelligence™ Infusion Platform at AACN

AACN 2017

BETHLEHEM, PA – May 22, 2017 — B. Braun Medical Inc. will showcase its portfolio of infusion pump products and integrated technologies, designed to help improve patient safety and outcomes, at the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) National Teaching Institute & Critical Care Exposition, May 23-25, at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston.

At booth #4531, B. Braun Medical will display the AutoProgramming, AutoDocumentation, and AutoNotification benefits of AutoCOMPLETE™ Integrated EMR — the highest level of integration on B. Braun’s Synchronized Intelligence™ Infusion Platform.

“AutoCOMPLETE is not only designed to help clinicians to reduce manual data entry errors and save time by increasing documentation accuracy, but also to facilitate improved reporting to help prevent alarm fatigue,” said Mike Golebiowski, Vice President of Automation and Infusion Systems at B. Braun Medical.

Alarm fatigue is a concern for healthcare providers as more devices are implemented in the healthcare environment. B. Braun’s Synchronized Intelligence platform is designed to seamlessly integrate real-time data, pumps, and reporting with other platforms for system-wide compatibility to help improve patient outcomes.

“When combined with education and institutional leadership, our design can help clinicians achieve up to 100 percent drug library compliance, a reduction in infusion-related medication errors, and a decrease in unnecessary alarms and alerts," Golebiowski said.

B. Braun’s integrated IV infusion pump portfolio also includes the Infusomat® Space Infusion System, the Outlook® Infusion Pump, real-time infusion insight through its PharmView application, and real-time wireless reporting with its DoseTrac® Infusion Management Software.

Additionally, B. Braun will sponsor three booth presentations and a poster presentation at AACN that will focus on how infusion technology, data and practice improvements are helping clinicians achieve positive outcomes for their patients:
