  The Basic Formulation Process
 
bullet The clinician enters parenteral nutrition orders on any workstation that has access to the Infusion Studio system.  Patient Demographics are pre-populated and serum chemistries are visible in Infusion Studio via communication with your hospital information system.
bullet Pharmacist reviews and approves the PN order from any workstation that has access to the Infusion Studio system.
bullet PN bag labels are printed locally at the hospital.
bullet PN summary and CPOE orders are sent to the hospital information system or can be printed locally.
bullet The approved PN order can be formulated in any of the following methods:
  1. The order can be compounded manually from the ingredient list.
  2. The ingredient list can be made available to semi-automated compounding devices.
  3. The order can be sent electronically to CAPS or other off-site facility for fulfillment.

Protocols

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 disease state, physician practice, or nutritional status. Each protocol can be set with soft and hard limits for each available additive so that unacceptable dosing, infusion rates, or end-concentrations cannot be ordered.  Examples of our standard age-based protocols are: "Premie-Day-One," Neonatal, Pediatric, and Adult (Salt- or Ion-based electrolyte ordering) to support inpatient or Home Pharmacy processes.

Formulary

Any part of the hospital formulary can be made available to each protocol in use at your institution.

Reduction in Medical Errors

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

bullet

Use of a standardized process across all age groups and patient types

bullet

Pre-printed order sheet that reflects ordered PN additives in a standardized format

bullet

Management of total fluids and electrolytes for infants and children

bullet

Standardized label format for all patients and protocols

bullet

User feedback of derivative nutritional values for fat, protein, and carbohydrate at point of order entry

bullet

Availability of context-sensitive serum chemistries and institutional dosing recommendations at point of order entry

bullet

CPOE direct-access by clinical providers and elimination of secondary manual-entry processes that can create transcription errors

Reports

Customizable reports can be developed and made available to the hospital for internal quality audits, inventory tracking, and personnel management.
