Home infusion monitoring system Micrelcare
Micrel Medical Devices has introduced Micrelcare, a unique web based service that enables actors involved in infusion care to report and monitor clinical and technical information on the infusion therapy.
Via a wireless, real time technology using a GPRS device (IP Connect) that gets connected to the ambulatory Rythmic™pump, the pump communicates with a web server and provides its infusion status online through the MicrelCare system.
The system provides a number of benefits for home and hospital infusion care, for example:
• Instant view of infusion status, 24h/day
Nurses and Homecare service providers can see infusion parameters such as: bag volume or battery level, online. Physicians can monitor the infusion progress and therapy related events like the requested and given bolus. Everything in real time through the web!
• Receive clinical feedback for your patient
Thanks to a therapy specific questionnaire, the physician receives patient’s feedback on the therapy and its side effects. The questionnaire can be answered on the pump by the care giver or the patient.
• Receive alerts in response to technical and clinical events
Technical and therapy related alerts are generated and sent via SMS or email. Healthcare professionals in charge are instantly notified for technical issues like pump alarms and are able to react in time.
• Instant access to the complete infusion history of your patients
View the history of all infusions for each patient, including all pump events, online. Therapy specific history information and graphs help physicians to evaluate the therapy progress and check patient compliance. Documentation of infusion care has never been easier!
