A new, cost-effective approach to outpatient infusion care with DripAssist
Using DripAssist To Improve Chemotherapy Delivery
Nursing staff at EC Green Cancer Center see up to 30-40 patients per day at their outpatient oncology/hematology infusion center, with infusions typically lasting between 30 minutes and two hours. While the facility owns several infusion pumps, nursing staff use gravity IV infusions monitored with DripAssist to administer most infusions shorter than three hours. In seeking a tool to improve safety and accuracy for their infusions, EC Green chose DripAssist for its cost effectiveness, ease of use and ability to provide continuous patient monitoring.
