At B. Braun, we offer a fully-integrated infusion platform with a human touch.
Our real-time data, high-performance pumps and electronic reporting system were collaboratively engineered with independent professionals to improve patient outcomes and operational efficiency within your health care system. We call it Synchronized Intelligence TM – harmoniously and thoughtfully designed to help clinicians achieve up to 100% drug library use compliance, minimize infusion-related medication errors, and reduce unnecessary alarms.
Integrated pumps. Integrated reporting. Integrated data. Working together, the sum is greater than its parts. Sophisticated Integration. Synchronized Intelligence.
Your facility, in sync at last.

DoseTrac® IT Services
B. Braun infusion pump interoperability demonstrates the ability to send data to Electronic Health Records (EHR) systems and other medical devices such as Alarm Management Systems and Real-time Location Services, as well as receive IV order information for AutoProgramming the B. Braun infusion pumps. B. Braun follows the IHE PCD standards for communicating and connecting to the health care environment.
Wireless connectivity and systems integration is an important consideration when evaluating infusion pumps. The B. Braun Outlook infusion pumps use wireless technology and software applications that:
- Capture key infusion data to help you evaluate the safety, efficiency and efficacy of your IV therapy
- Provide for infusion pumps data integration to and from your EHR
We were one of the first companies to participate on the advisory panel of Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) that is defining standard interoperability communication protocols between infusion pumps and EHR and other medical devices.
For our Outlook Infusion Systems, software applications such as the DoseTrac Infusion Management Software and our ability to wirelessly upload drug libraries allow hospitals to close the loop on infusion therapy. Outbound infusion data can be stored, reported, and analyzed using the DoseTrac software. After identifying additional practice enhancements, drug library updates can be wirelessly sent to the pumps.
B. Braun infusion pump interoperability demonstrates our ability to send data to EHR systems and medical devices as well as receive IV order information for auto-programming our Outlook infusion pumps. B. Braun follows the IHE PCD standards in communicating and connecting to the healthcare environment.
