March 12, 2008 - B. Braun Medical Inc. said this week its PINNACLE TPN Management System, a medical device that improves patient safety and compounding efficiency when pharmacies compound intravenous (IV) formulations, can be easily integrated with the home infusion therapy industry's leading information system, CPR v8.0.
Created and distributed by Definitive Homecare Solutions (D.H.S.), CPR is used by more than 800 home infusion providers nationwide.
The company says the interface requires no information technology implementation and no need for manual input because the interface is barcode-driven. After the TPN calculations are performed by CPR , a bar code is printed on the TPN Worksheet, which can be scanned into the PINNACLE TPN Management System, making the procedure efficient and helping reduce transcription errors.
The B. Braun PINNACLE TPN Management System received the 2007 Gold Medical Device Excellence Award for advancement in design.
