12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. ET



A 99% compliance rate with your hospital's smart infusion pump library is possible!

Please join the AAMI Foundation’s National Coalition for Infusion Therapy Safety to learn how the Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Maryland has achieved and maintained this impressive goal.

  • Define Dose Error Reduction System (DERS) and identify key components of this vital smart pump safety software
  • Explain the purpose of Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) reports and how to leverage this data to optimize smart pump safety features and identify near misses
  • Discuss wireless connectivity for infusion pumps and best demonstrated practices for publishing drug library updates
  • Identify scenarios where Clinical Conditions (Modifiers) can be used to help promote safe IV medication delivery

About the National Coalition

The National Coalition for Infusion Therapy Safety was launched in March 2015, in Annapolis, MD.  Since that time, four teams were formed to work on the issues identified by the 100+ stakeholders that attended. The four teams are focused on: (1) improving drug library compliance, (2) reducing non-clinically actionable pump alarms, (3) disseminating multiple-line education developed by HumanEra, (4) and, developing infusion-therapy-safety-related questions hospital C-suite executives should ask themselves to determine if they have safe systems in place. The teams are planning deliverables that include Patient Safety Seminars, Safety Innovation Series white papers, and regional events.
