Outlook Ensures Right Dose at Right Time

The B. Braun Outlook Safety Infusion System helps to ensure that the right patient receives the right medication in the right dose from an authorized clinician at point-of-care.
The patented DoseScan technology allows the clinician to automate the programming of the infusion device by protecting against the primary cause of IV medication errors, matching the right medication to the right patient and reducing the risk of manual programming errors.
DoseGuard software technology notifies the clinician when pre-programmed dose limits are exceeded, protecting against the secondary cause of IV medication errors. The system also notifies the clinician when institution-defined dose limits are exceeded during DoseScan automated data entry.
