An unlimited number of clinical protocols can be configured to allow for precision in parenteral nutrition administration.
For example, specific protocols can be configured that are specific for clinical service, patient nutritional status, physician practice, nutritional status, or disease states. Each protocol can be set with soft and hard limits on each available parameter so that unacceptable ingredients or concentrations cannot be ordered.  Examples are: "Premie-Day-One," Neonatal, Pediatric, and Adult (Salt- or Ion-based electrolyte ordering) to support In-patient or Home Pharmacy processes.


Any part of the hospital formulary can be made available to any of the specific protocols.

Reduction in Medical Errors

Several key factors have been demonstrated to significantly reduce the mortality and morbidity of parenteral nutrition:


Pre-printed order sheet


Computerized calculations


Management of total fluids


Standardized labels


Monitoring nutritional intake


Following monitoring parameters


Using nutritional advancement guidelines


CPOE direct-access by clinical providers to avoid transcription errors


Any of the following reports can be printed:

Summary, content, mixing labels


Historical trends of ordered PN's
