BOSTON, Oct. 23, 2019 — Ivenix, the first and only large-volume infusion pump developed and cleared under the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) new infusion pump guidance, today announced its partnership with Iatric® Systems, Inc., a Harris Healthcare Group company. Together, Ivenix and Iatric Systems will provide a solution that enables interoperability between the Ivenix large-volume infusion pump and the MEDITECH electronic health (EHR) using Iatric Systems Accelero Connect® software.
Medication errors are the leading cause of patient harm in U.S. hospitals, accounting for almost 20% of medical injuries, and IV-related errors are consistently the most serious of these. Automatic programming of the IV pump from a pharmacy-verified order greatly reduces the chance of error.
The standards-based interoperability between Ivenix and Accelero Connect enables the automatic programming of the Ivenix large-volume pump from a provider’s order. It also allows the automatic documentation of infusion data into the MEDITECH EMR. With interoperability, transcription errors are reduced, resulting in safer, less error-prone medication administration. By significantly reducing the time required to program and document an infusion, this solution also promises to increase overall nurse and patient satisfaction.

“‘First, do not harm’ is the imperative for every clinician,” said Susan Niemeier, MHA, BSN, RN, chief nursing officer at Ivenix. “Smart pump-EMR integration reduces manual programming steps for nurses, duplicative documentation and clinician fatigue. Without it, there are multiple opportunities for error, impacting care quality, outcomes, and the cost of care. An infusion system that is interoperable with the EMR allows nurses to spend less time managing their IV infusion pumps and more time caring for patients.”
Ivenix is setting a new standard in infusion delivery by rethinking safety, simplicity and interoperability with features and capabilities not offered by any other infusion solution. Its information-centric architecture makes use of patient information in a way that no other pump does today. Ivenix also incorporates a patented, adaptive flow control technology, which eliminates the risk of free flow and provides best-in-class flow accuracy and continuity.
Ivenix, Inc. is a medical technology company with a vision to eliminate infusion-related patient harm. The company was founded to develop innovative solutions that transform infusion delivery. Ivenix designed an infusion system from the ground up to streamline medication delivery and bring legacy technology into the digital age. The Ivenix Infusion System includes a large-volume infusion pump supported by a robust infusion management system designed to set new standards in usability, medication precision and interoperability.
