Smart Pumps


State of Pharmacy Automation 2015 - Vol. 12 No. 8 - Page #78

Smart pump adoptions continue to increase, benefitting the vast majority of facilities. Unfortunately, data transfer challenges keep many users from achieving the full value of this technology; a full third of users have yet to implement wireless data transfer, and those enjoying more sophisticated programming options, such as the ability to program with patient-specific data, remain in the minority. Still, most pharmacy directors are optimistic and expect to significantly improve their data-transfer capabilities over the next 5 years. 

Pharmacy’s involvement with smart pumps is key to the success of this technology. When pharmacy is an active participant in both the selection and implementation processes, they also are more satisfied with their smart pumps.
