Deborah Heart and Lung Center introduces Ivenix Infusion System to hospital

Deborah Heart and Lung Center is going live with Ivenix, a modern smart infusion pump system.

Sue Campano, vice president for support services, said the health center’s nurses collaborated extensively on choosing the Ivenix Infusion System, which includes a large-volume infusion pump, portfolio of administration sets and infusion management software.

Nurse Rita Zenna, Deborah’s vice president for patient care services, said they replaced the existing pumps with Ivenix because it is a state-of-the-art infusion system capable of measuring and controlling medication delivery.

“We are enthusiastic about the opportunity to partner with Deborah Heart and Lung Center and bring this innovative infusion system to more clinicians and patients,” said Susan Niemeier, chief nursing officer of Ivenix. “Advancing medication safety and clinical outcomes is critical for a hospital, and we’re honored to support the Deborah Heart’s efforts to protect patient health.”

The Ivenix Infusion System’s adaptive fluid delivery reduces flow and accuracy variability to help improve patient safety. Its patient-centered design benefits patients because clinicians spend less time troubleshooting pumps or resolving nuisance alarms, which simplifies infusion delivery for those providing bedside care. Additionally, the Ivenix System can seamlessly integrate with Deborah Heart’s electronic medical record and other hospital information systems, further reducing the possibility of patient medication errors.

“We are excited about how the system is designed to prevent medication errors, reduce nuisance alarms and other common interruptions,” Zenna said. “This will have a significant impact on our ability to provide high-quality care and ensure our patients get the rest needed after surgery.

“We continue to invest in smart technology, and this was a natural next step for us. Our clinical teams are pleased with how smoothly the system was rolled out across the entire hospital.”
