Bainbridge Health brings together medication safety thought leaders to discuss Electronic Health Record - Smart Infusion Pump interoperability data trends, clinical experiences and data analytics protocols.
PHILADELPHIA (PRWEB) September 03, 2019
Bainbridge Health, provider of the Med O.S.® Platform for medication safety and stewardship, convened its Clinical Advisory Board and national safety experts to discuss the emerging lessons of electronic health record and smart infusion pump interoperability. The advisory board worked towards further development of data analytics protocols for smart pump interoperability. A summary from the Clinical Advisory Board meeting can be found on the company’s website.
Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Smart Infusion Pump Interoperability is designed to streamline the medication administration process and improve outcomes by bi-directionally exchanging data between the two systems. The goal is to reduce manual programming steps and automate documentation. It is estimated that approximately 5% – 7% of hospitals have completed an EHR – smart infusion pump interoperability implementation.
“This medication safety advancement requires new methodologies for extracting, merging and analyzing disparate datasets in order to longitudinally monitor safety, practice and compliance,” said Sean O’Neill, Chief Clinical Officer of Bainbridge Health. “To get a strong return on investment, it is essential to have a data strategy before going into the project. Appropriate process and outcome metrics, coupled with robust data tools to monitor the efficacy of the technology are at the heart of a successful technology upgrade.”
The Bainbridge Health Clinical Advisory Board discussed new data management strategies and key performance indicators that will help clinicians effectively combine and utilize medication administration data from the EHR and smart infusion pumps. Ultimately, the goal is to improve the safety and stewardship of medications. Findings from the Clinical Advisory Board can be found in the White Paper: Themes, Dreams & Data Schemes: A Review of Electronic Health Record and Smart Infusion Pump Interoperability Trends.
