Electronic TPN ordering?
A multi-disciplinary team representing CIS, clinical pharmacy, pharmacy IT, nutrition, and informatics participated in the first Seattle Children’s hackathon, working on a way to electronically order TPN for our patents. The proof of concept won this team a share of the first prize. The team has continued their work and is aiming to have a working method to electronically order TPN by this summer. We currently order over 14,000 paper TPN orders per year, and hope that this team’s work will greatly improve the efficiency and safety of this process.
