We recently implemented Alaris / Epic interop throughout our 8 hospital system. We're using Epic's daily compliance report to monitor compliance and identify & resolve issues.
Compliance with albumin administration via interop is almost zero. Nurses are administering via gravity because it takes hours to infuse with vented Alaris tubing due to the frequent alarms.
If your institution is live with interop,
1. How do you monitor compliance? What medication(s), if any, do you exclude from compliance reports.
2. How is albumin administered? Gravity, infusion pump?
3. Have you had any success with the use of vented Alaris infusion sets?
