IV Clinical Integration

Improving Medication Management

Close the gap between your care team, patients and medication management. Hospira’s IV Clinical Integration solutions connect the medication order with the IV pump, patient information and electronic medical record (EMR) enabling seamless, near real-time sharing of patient and medication information helping to improve patient safety, workflow and cost efficiency.
