Unmatched Product Implementation and Software Support and Maintenance

The benefits of acquiring the Novum IQ Infusion Platform extend well beyond the bedside.

A Baxter-led Universal Implementation Process (UIP) engages all facility stakeholders and spans pre-implementation planning, drug library build, product training and post-implementation follow-up.

Available to support you beyond product implementation, the Novum IQ Infusion Platform with PartnerAdvantage Services program offers extensive clinical, digital application and training support resources to help you maximize your investment. The program is designed to assist every department engaged in infusion delivery, including nursing, pharmacy, biomedical engineering and IT. Services are tailored to support the Novum IQ Infusion Platform from initial adoption through full integration with your electronic medical record (EMR) system.

Baxter SERVinity Service Solutions is available to support your product maintenance needs. While your in-house biomedical engineers can likely handle most pump servicing needs, this option can provide supplemental support, such as preventive maintenance, an extended warranty, other repair services and spare parts. 

DeviceVue Asset Tracking Application: Find the Pump You Need, When You Need It, Without Requiring an External Tag

DeviceVue Tablet 3 dots

Nurses may spend up to 1 hour per shift searching for equipment.9 Uncertainty about infusion pump location and status may contribute to staff inefficiency, fleet underutilization and unnecessary pump purchases.

Baxter's DeviceVue application, in conjuction with the tagless location communications capability embedded in every Novum IQ pump, uses your hospital wireless network and floor plan to map your pump locations and provide insight into whether pumps are infusing with color-coded pump status indicators.

Now hospital staff can easily find the right infusion pumps when they need them, and know whether they are available or in use, helping to improve operational efficiency and maximize clinician time with patients.

IQ StatusVue Dashboard: Empower clinicians to drive efficiencies with remote visibility

Half of nurses indicate insufficient amount of appropriate, clinical time with patients.10 Without visibility into infusion pump status, nurses may spend extra time checking in on patients when time could be spent elsewhere. In addition, one study estimated IV waste and re-dispensing can cost an organization up to $567K each year.11

Baxter’s IQ StatusVue Dashboard application remotely displays relevant pump information such as pump alarms, infusion status, volume to be infused (VTBI), total volume infused and time remaining to give nursing and pharmacy insight into the status of infusions, which may help reduce medication waste, improve hospital efficiency and providing nursing the ability to respond and prioritize patients appropriately.
