“It’s good! It’s a safety device designed to prevent the wrong type and amount of insulin being administered.”

Insulin Dosage Verification

The problem is that there has not been an effective way to verify the amount of insulin administered by syringe in a hospital setting, nor is there a way to electronically verify that the correct dose of insulin is given to the correct patient. This leaves patient safety too vulnerable to human error. DoseGuru by Digital Hospital solves this problem.
Digital Hospital's mission is to improve patient safety by creating innovative products that help eliminate human errors.
DoseGuru makes it possible to measure syringe volumes of insulin as low as 0.005 mL. The minute volume of insulin typically needed in injections could not be automatically verified in the prior state of the art.
The injection of the verified dose is, of course, also automatically documented in the hospital's Electronic Health Record.
The prior vulnerability caused by an imprecise manual measurement and data entry workflow is thus eliminated.
