B. Braun Successfully Integrates with Cerner at McLaren Hospital
BETHLEHEM, PA – October 10, 2018 – B. Braun Medical Inc. announced today the integration of their Infusomat® Space Large Volume Pumps with Cerner Millennium® electronic health record (EHR) platform at McLaren Greater Lansing Hospital, located in Lansing, Michigan.
The integration is designed to help McLaren reduce medication administration errors through the bi-directional interface capability. Using Cerner’s Millennium® EHR platform, nurses send infusion order data to B. Braun’s Infusomat Space Large Volume Pump via the smart pump programming feature that consists of AutoProgramming. Real-time data is then transmitted from the pump through B. Braun’s DoseTrac™ Infusion Management Software to the EHR platform for consistent and frequent AutoDocumentation through the smart pump AutoProgramming feature.
“This milestone marks the completion of our fully integrated Synchronized Intelligence™ Infusion Platform with Cerner. This interoperability helps identify quality improvements and drug library enhancements,” said Tom Sutton, Vice President, Medical Device and Pharmaceutical Systems at B. Braun.
AutoProgramming and AutoDocumentation are two capabilities of B. Braun’s AutoCOMPLETE™ Integrated EMR system, along with AutoNotification and AutoLocation. AutoCOMPLETE is a complete system offering versatility, real-time data, and automated features with integrated partners for system-wide compatibility.
“AutoProgramming is designed to improve patient outcomes by eliminating manual programming. AutoDocumentation is designed to improve operational efficiencies by reducing manual reporting and facilitating data analysis,” Sutton said.
