Smart Drug Infusion Pumps

MGH transformed patient care with the introduction of a “smart” drug infusion pump—an invention that was conceptualized and deployed hospital-wide. The invention was motivated by an awareness of tragic events involving complex drug dosing calculation errors and misprogrammed drug infusion pumps.  The MGH, along with industrial collaborators, designed what is known as the “smart” infusion pump, an electronic device that contains an updated, hospital specific electronic library of hundreds of intravenous drugs and infusion protocols embedded in the pump’s software.  The FDA has mandated the use of smart pumps.  Royalties in excess of $30M
