Cerner Bridge Transfusion Administration and Specimen Collections receives FDA Clearance software

Cerner : 28 June, 2007  (New Product)
The Cerner Bridge Transfusion Administration and Specimen Collections software solution has received US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) pre-market notification clearance.
Cerner will immediately make this solution available to clients.

“Obtaining FDA 510(k) clearance for Cerner Bridge Transfusion Administration and Specimen Collections completes the point-of-care suite for Cerner Bridge Medical, which also includes Medication Administration,” said Rick Neece, vice president for Cerner’s Classic Solutions. “This is just another example of Cerner’s commitment to point-of-care solutions and Patient safety at the bedside for our clients.”

Cerner Bridge Transfusion Administration and Specimen Collections uses bar-code scanning technology, wireless networks and clinical systems integration to improve patient safety. Utilising positive patient identification, the solution records and collects information at the bedside and facilitates compliance with standards.

“The Cerner Bridge Transfusion solution provides up to six bar-code checks to ensure the right blood product is being administered to the correct patient. As a result, we feel safer administering blood in our organization,” said Tina Suess, RN, Lancaster General Hospital, who worked with Cerner Bridge Medical as a beta partner. “With a friendly and consistent user interface, our nurses are guided through the transfusion process.”

Cerner Bridge Medical solutions provide healthcare organizations with a full suite of bar-coding solutions for medication administration, specimen collection and blood product administration, ultimately impacting patient safety.
