This presentation will provide attendees with a foundation to evaluate infusion pump clinical workflows in preparation for EMR interoperability. Common challenges occur when moving toward standardized workflows and workarounds often exist. Various strategies will be presented on how to mitigate issues and prevent possible workarounds. We will conclude with methods for measuring and sustaining success.


Learning Objectives


  1. Identify the top challenging infusion pump clinical workflows to standardize for interoperability.

  2. Describe challenges associated with moving from the current state workflow to the future state workflow.

  3. Identify strategies to mitigate workarounds associated with the common workflows.

  4. Name 3 ways to measure success with smart pump interoperability.
