EXPLORE THE WORLD OF ARCOMED
Unsolved Hospital Situation
Reducing your costs:
The arcomed All-in-One philosophy allows you to meet all your infusion needs with fewer pump units. As long as all hospital departments (OR, ICU, general ward…) can share the same devices in terms of hardware, the pump can automatically change its configuration profile in order to behave in the manner expected by the user (syringe types, drug library, occlusion limits, alarms, default setup…).
All-in-One integration collateral benefit -> Minimization of your storage space:
The reduction of the hospital pump fleet from 220 to 165 units, from 3 different pump suppliers to just one, and from 15 different kind of pumps (with 15 different kind of disposables, 15 different sizes, 15 different menu interfaces…) means the hospital can minimize the space devoted to storing pumps while not in use.
