Smart Infusion Management

Digital transformation—implementing smart infusion management in the hospital

Hospitals face enormous challenges in providing effective and efficient patient care. Digitalization strategies offer opportunities – but with smart technologies come new issues and new vulnerabilities. So, what does „smart“ really mean for a hospital? A solution that improves integration and connectivity – that provides security, asset and medication management all at once.

Limited hospital resources

Hospital resources are scarce: there is a lack of time, money, and personnel. New technologies can increase efficiency, but they also increase the risks of cyberattacks – jeopardizing IT infrastructure and maybe even harming patients. We know there is an urgent need to increase security while making the most of available resources.
