DoseGuru       makes it possible to digitally verify the nurse's measurement of insulin with the doctor's order residing in the Electronic Health Record.


After DoseGuru        verifies the nurse's measurement, a barcode is produced for the syringe which includes the dosage.  


The injection of the verified dose is automatically documented in the hospital's Electronic Health Record when scanning the label at the bedside.


The current vulnerability caused by an imprecise manual measurement or by manual data entry is thus eliminated.

1/3 of fatal medical errors in the hospital among diabetics are due to insulin medication errors.

Our Mission

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.


  • Thirty-five percent of hospital deaths attributable to medical errors are due to medications.
  • Insulin dosing errors cause hypo or hyperglycemia resulting in prolonged length of stay, morbidity and mortality.
  • For hospitalized diabetic patients who have died due to a medical error, insulin is implicated in one third of the cases.

Digital Hospital's mission is to improve patient safety by creating innovative products that help eliminate human errors.
