Planning for a Seamless Transition for Infusion Pump Integration with the EHR webcast

Description

The integration of smart infusion pumps with other technology such as computerized physician order entry (CPOE) and electronic health records (EHRs) is a huge step forward in reducing pump programming errors and enhancing the safe administration of IV medications. This continuing education (CE) activity will provide you with key information on how to prepare your organization for autoprogramming IV infusions and optimizing closed-loop technologies.
