  • Better patient outcomes and improved safety.

  • Less time documenting and more time caring for patients.

  • Reduced need for manual searches and documenting IV med details.

  • More detailed and precise documentation.

  • Decreased potential errors when managing complex IV infusions.

“I am excited we’ve launched IV pump integration, helping to improve our patient safety and outcomes. Thank you to everyone involved in this initiative!” said Nicole Twine, PhD, APRN, ACNP-BC, NE-BC and HMWB vice president and chief nursing officer.

“This is a significant milestone for our patient safety initiatives at Houston Methodist, which certainly ensures we continue our march toward being the safest hospital system in the world,” said Dr. Ghalib Abbasi, PharmD, MS, MBA, HM system director of pharmacy informatics.
