Hospira and healthcare IT firm Cerner are joining forces to develop the companies’ infusion pump information platform, building on previous efforts to better integrate Hospira’s infusion pumps with Cerner’s electronic medical record (EMR) systems. Hospira, Inc., a provider of injectable drugs and infusion technologies are looking to enhance interoperability between their smart intravenous (I.V.) infusion devices and Cerner’s CareAware solutions to meet the evolving needs of healthcare organizations. The new expanded agreement focuses on broadening interoperability among Hospira’s portfolio of smart infusion pumps with Hospira MedNet™ safety software and Cerner’s Millennium™ healthcare information technology (IT) platform.
“Hospira is proud to extend our relationship with Cerner to deliver the enhan ced interoperability between smart I.V. pumps and EMRs that our customers seek,” said Cynthia Ansari, vice president, U.S. Marketing and Software, Medical Devices, Hospira. “Together, we will innovate to enable our products to integrate in new and even more effective ways. This relationship builds on a longstanding foundation of collaboration between our companies with a shared goal of supporting healthcare organizations and caregivers in delivering the best possible care.”
Hospira and Cerner first collaborated in 2003 to develop infusion pump and EMR integration technology, also known as I.V.-EMR interoperability. Hospira has since deployed I.V.-EMR interoperability at more hospitals than any other smart pump vendor.
