Alaris Auto-ID

MAY 01, 2006

Cardinal Health (San Diego, Calif) recently introduced the Alaris Auto-ID module, an enhancement to the Alaris System "smart" intravenous (IV) pump. In order to address the specific requirements for IV-medication administration, the module provides bar-coding functionality, which provides an additional check in the IV-medication verification process. The system allows hospitals with or without a wireless network or bar-coding system to benefit from the added safety of bar coding for IV therapy, and it helps reduce IV-programming errors. The Alaris Auto-ID enables the inclusion of patient and clinician identification in continuous quality improvement data captured at the point of care. Hospitals with the Alaris Gateway are then able to relay patient-specific infusion and alarms data to third-party electronic medication administration records and other hospital information systems. For more information, visit www.cardinalhealth.com/alaris, or call 800-482-4822.
