Hospira and Iatric Systems partner to deliver smart pump-EMR interoperability to hospitals
Iatric Systems, a healthcare technology company dedicated to helping healthcare organizations enhance their IT investments, and Hospira, a Pfizer Company and leading provider of infusion technologies, today announced a formal partnership to develop interoperability between Hospira’s smart infusion devices and Iatric Systems Accelero Connect integration software solution. Hospira and Iatric Systems have signed a development agreement and are currently piloting smart pump-EMR interoperability (a/k/a IV-EMR interoperability) at an undisclosed U.S. hospital.
The smart pump-EMR interoperability between Hospira and Iatric Systems provides two-way communication that enables automation of pump programming with the validated EMR medication order, as well as documentation of medication administration data back into the patient’s electronic medical record.
"Hospira is proud to partner with Iatric Systems to make IV-EMR interoperability available to the hundreds of hospitals where Iatric Systems performs integration,” said Julie Sawyer-Montgomery, president, Hospira Infusion Systems. “After already becoming the first smart pump vendor to successfully integrate with three major EMR platforms, we are excited to add another major EMR system to the list once this pilot site goes live.”
