B. Braun Medical said today that it integrated its Outlook large-volume infusion pump with Iatric Systems‘ Accelero Connect integration software. The technology enables the pump to communicate with electronic health record systems, such as Meditech.
Bethlehem, Pa.-based B. Braun said it used Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise standard communication protocols and transactions to support the integration.
The company worked with Iatric Systems to test and validate B. Braun’s AutoComplete Integrated EMR capabilities and now offers the integration to its Outlook pump customers.
“Through this integration with Accelero Connect, B. Braun’s Outlook pump and DoseTrac Infusion Management Software can effectively share infusion data with EHR solutions supported by Iatric Systems, helping to enhance clinician workflows, and improve patient safety and care,” B. Braun’s VP of marketing, automation & infusion systems Mike Golebiowski said in prepared remarks.
In November last year, B. Braun’s Aesculap division said it invested $2.8 million into ApiFix’s $5 million Series B financing round to support ApiFix’s minimally invasive, non-fusion spinal implant system designed to treat adolescent idiopathic scoliosis.
The device won CE Mark clearance for use in the European Union in 2012 and is designed to correct adolescent idiopathic scoliosis without the use of fusion to avoid any potential for loss of spine mobility.
