IV pump integration and sepsis fluid bolus

For sites that have gone live with IV pump/EHR interoperability:

Can you share how the Sepsis fluid bolus is entered in your EHR system?
Currently our rate exceeds 999 mL/hr which would exclude this entry from integration. We want to use integration so that the fluid documentation goes to the flow sheets. If this is an outlier to integration, nursing may forget to document the I&O volume.
