Technical Services

Interoperability

B. Braun Space Infusion Pumps have integrated with Electronic Health Records (EHR) systems for AutoProgramming and AutoDocumentation, Real-Time location services for asset management, and Alarm Management Systems.

 

B. Braun is a charter member of Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) and follows the IHE PCD standards in communication and integrating with our partners.

  • Device Enterprise Communication (DEC – PCD-01 AutoDocumentation)
  • Infusion Pump Event Communication (IPEC – PCD-10 AutoDocumentation)
  • Point-of-Care Infusion Verification (PIV – PCD-03 AutoProgramming)
  • Alert Communication Management (ACM – PCD-04 AutoNotification)
  • Medical Equipment Management Device Management Communication (MEMDMC – PCD-15 Device Information)
  • Medical Equipment Management Location Services (MEMLS – PCD16 AutoLocation)

EHR Integration

Integration of Space Infusion pumps with an Electronic Health Record (EHR) system is designed to increase patient safety by significantly reducing manual entry with AutoProgramming and improve workflow allowing clinicians to spend more time with patients through AutoDocumentation.

The Space Infusion pumps have interfaced with Allscripts Sunrise™ since 2018.  This integration includes bidirectional communication for AutoProgramming and automatically sending infusion data to the EHR.

The Space Infusion pumps have interfaced with Cerner EHR for AutoProgramming and AutoDocumentation since 2016 with the first health system integration occurring in 2018. 

The Space Infusion pumps have interfaced with Epic EHR for AutoProgramming and AutoDocumentation since 2016 with the first health system integration occurring in 2019. Epic and EpicCare are registered trademarks of Epic Systems Corporation. 

The Space Infusion pumps have interfaced with MEDITECH EHR for Auto Programming and Auto Documentation since 2016 using the iatricSystems™ Accelero Connect™ software with the first health system to integrate occurring in 2019.

Asset Utilization

Integration of Space Infusion pumps with a Real-Time Location System (RTLS) is designed to reduce costs through improved asset utilization and increased workflow efficiencies. Clinicians may spend more time in direct patient care by reducing search times for an available pump and remotely determining if the pump is available.

The integration with GuardRFID® Asset Tracking Solution includes a bidirectional interface with B. Braun’s DoseTrac Infusion Management software. This integration provides pump status data to the Asset Tracking Solution so that users know not only where a pump is located but also if it is available. Adding location data to B. Braun’s DoseTrac Infusion Management software provides real-time views to help clinicians intercept errors and increase drug library compliance up to 100% with periodic compliance rounding. 

The integration with Midmark RTLS Asset Tracking + Management provides real-time visibility to pump status data so users know not only where a pump is located but also if it is available. If the pump is unavailable, Midmark RTLS displays the status duration, so nurses know how long it’s been in use. In addition, Midmark RTLS displays a “Download Ready” status when the device is plugged in and able to receive a drug library update. 

The first health system integrated in 2017.

The integration with STANLEY Healthcare’s AeroScout Real-Time Location System (RTLS) includes a bidirectional interface with B. Braun’s DoseTrac Infusion Management software. This integration provides pump status data to AeroScout RTLS so that users know not only where a pump is located but also if it is available. Aeroscout RTLS sends location data to DoseTrac real-time views to help clinicians intercept errors and increase drug library compliance up to 100% periodic compliance rounding.

The first health system to integrate occurred in 2018. 

The integration with TeleTracking’s Real-Time Locating System Asset Tracking provides pump status data so that users know not only where a pump is located but also if it is available.

Alarm Management

Integration of Space Infusion pumps with an Alarm Management System is designed to provide nurses with actionable and timely information through hospital defined prioritizations and customizable escalations, intended to reduce delays in therapy and reduce alarm fatigue.

The integration with Cerner CareAware is designed to provide nurses with actionable and timely information through hospital defined prioritizations and customizable escalations, intended to reduce delays in therapy and reduce alarm fatigue. This integration requires an EHR integration to associate the patient to the pump.

The integration with Philips’ (Brand) alarm management system is designed to provide nurses with actionable and timely information through hospital defined prioritizations and customizable escalations, intended to reduce delays in therapy and reduce alarm fatigue. This integration requires an EHR integration to associate the patient to the pump.

The integration with Spok Care Connect alarm management provides nurses with actionable and timely information through hospital-defined prioritizations and customizable escalations to help minimize delays in therapy and reduce alarm fatigue. This integration requires an EHR integration to associate the patient to the pump.

The integration with Vocera Engage enables health systems to enhance patient safety by enabling filtering, routing, escalation, and prioritization of alarm notifications that clinicians receive on their device of choice. The Engage intelligent workflow engine is FDA 510(k) cleared middleware. It allows clinicians to receive only the communications and notifications they need, and make sure important information reaches the right recipient.

The integration with West-Com Nurse Call Systems is designed to provide nurses with actionable and timely information through hospital defined prioritizations and customizable escalations, intended to reduce delays in therapy and reduce alarm fatigue. This integration is unique in that an EHR integration is not necessary to associate the patient to the pump.

The first health system to integrate occurred in 2019.
