Fresenius Kabi Partners with Virginia Oncology Associates to Revolutionize Patient Care: Introducing the Ivenix Infusion System for Enhanced Medication Delivery
LAKE ZURICH, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Fresenius Kabi takes a groundbreaking step in healthcare as it collaborates with Virginia Oncology Associates (VOA) to introduce the cutting-edge Ivenix Infusion System. This advanced large-volume smart pump is designed to enhance precision and safety in patient care.
VOA, a distinguished oncology and hematology practice serving southeast Virginia and northeast North Carolina for over 35 years, is renowned for its innovative therapies and patient-centric approach. VOA is part of The US Oncology Network, a vast alliance of over 1,200 independent physicians and 500+ cancer treatment centers nationwide.
Fresenius Kabi and VOA are embarking on a partnership to seamlessly integrate the Ivenix Infusion System with VOA’s electronic medical record (EMR) system.
Nicky Dozier, Pharm.D., clinical director at VOA, emphasized the importance of safety checks and care standards, particularly for their growing team of nurses. She stated, “We believe we have an opportunity with this pump and the interactive drug library system to mitigate a number of safety risks.”
The Ivenix Large-Volume Pump features an expansive, smartphone-like touchscreen that empowers clinicians to auto-program, review, and accept medication orders directly on the pump. Its built-in integration engine ensures secure interoperability with leading electronic medical record (EMR) systems. The Ivenix system streamlines testing processes, reducing implementation time and resource requirements when aligning the drug library with the EMR formulary.
Furthermore, the Ivenix platform offers centralized management of the pump fleet, providing an efficient device command center for oversight of device utilization, location tracking, proactive maintenance, user administration, and remote software and security updates.
Pete Allen, Senior Vice President, IV Therapy at Fresenius Kabi, Region U.S., commented, “We understand that each healthcare provider has unique needs for their care team and patients. VOA faced challenges with drug library constraints in its legacy system, necessitating manual administration of pre-meds, leading to inconsistent dosing. Ivenix addresses this issue by intelligently measuring, controlling, and delivering medications until the bag or syringe is empty. We are proud to welcome VOA as a valued customer in this transformative journey.”
