B. Braun’s DoseTrac infusion management software mixes real-time information and retrospective reporting to provide insight that can inform protocol changes, reduce alerts, educate staff to drive drug library compliance, and decrease the possibility of adverse drug events due to misprogrammed infusion pumps. DoseTrac is designed to improve workflow by using PharmView real-time status view to promote just-in-time delivery of medication without having to walk the floors. In addition, for nursing, DoseTrac monitors infusion status and drug library compliance with a real-time view, enabling quick and efficient response to alarms. Retrospective reports help identify trends and define the need for staff education and protocol updates. Integrated pumps, reporting, and data comprise the synchronized intelligence infusion platform, ensuring the safety of patients while optimizing operational efficiency within the health system.
