Baxter won FDA clearance for its Spectrum IQ infusion system, which has some interesting features designed to prevent the wrong drugs and wrong dosages from being administered. The device connects to the hospital’s electronic medical record system, receiving information from it and sending its own data there for permanent storage.

Baxter’s Dose IQ software within the Spectrum IQ checks the health record and makes sure that things such as interactions with other drugs taken by the patient don’t cause unwanted effects.

There’s a bunch of auto programming options and features to make infusions safe for everyone involved.

To make things go faster, the screen can display QR codes that can be scanned by another device, eliminating stickers as a way to verify patients, to pass on data, and make sure correct infusions are performed.
