Safety IV catheter

Intravenous products: Hospira, Inc., a leading provider of clinical information and medication delivery technologies, today announced a partnership with the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) Hospital to implement one of the first integrations of the wireless Symbiq(TM) infusion device with built-in Hospira MedNet(TM) safety software and the Cerner Millennium(R) EHR through the Cerner CareAware iBus(TM) system. Integrating these technologies enables auto-programmed infusion pumps, minimizing manual programming of the device and helping to decrease medication dosing errors, increase compliance with medication orders and reduce pump programming time.

Marking one of the first planned auto-programming implementations with the technologically advanced Symbiq device, the Hospira and UAB Hospital partnership illustrates Hospira’s ongoing commitment to provide solutions that drive safety and efficiencies in healthcare.
