Medication is an integral part of the treatment of patients. But when dosed incorrectly, medication can have serious, potentially fatal consequences, especially in the more vulnerable pediatric patient population. Dose calculation errors are the most common type of medication error for babies and children.
Especially in a pediatric environment, incorrect weight-based dosage errors can have a detrimental effect. Following example shows that even a “harmless” drug such as Acetaminophen can become dangerous for small patients.
When nursing staff is chronically under pressure, errors occur more often. seca integration solutions provide relief and thus free up time to focus on what matters most, your patients.
+ Eliminate manual entry errors
+ Reduce time consuming manual results documentation
+ Standardize documentation of weight measurements
+ Make patient’s information accessible in one central location
Does this look familiar?
Measurements are often first handwritten on a piece of paper or glove and then entered into an EMR system at a later time and at another location. With the daily rush and distractions nurses experience, there is potential for erroneous data entry by misreading handwriting, switching numbers or misplacing decimal points.
seca scales and measuring stations transmit measurements directly into your EMR system. The digital workflow with automatic patient and user identification eliminates manual data entry errors, and ensures the data is saved to the correct patient file.
seca integration solutions are unique in the world of medical measuring and weighing.
We provide everything you need from a single source to ensure complete and seamless integration of weight and height into your EMR system:
Compared to seca, other manufacturers only provide EMR-ready technology, which is limited to sending data to a single computer. In contrast, seca EMR-validated technology uses the existing WiFi or Ethernet infrastructure to connect to the EMR system via a single HL7 interface.
seca is the only medical scale solutions provider that offers both lbs/kg and kg-only EMR-validated (not simply EMR-ready) patient scales that seamlessly interoperate with an automated, bi-directional communication workflow that allows for user and patient identification.
