Southborough, MA, May 8, 2018— eBroselow announced today that it will offer a free version of its potentially lifesaving medication dosing software solution to organizations or individuals. The no-charge version of SafeDose contains the application’s innovative web and mobile tools and includes a content bundle of resuscitation, rapid sequence intubation (RSI), anaphylaxis, and seizure medications, as well as its QuickDose code sheets, PALS-based and ACLS-based algorithms, and graphical body percentage burn calculator tools.
“This is a big step in helping improve safety for patients, particularly children, in acute situations,” said John Gobron, CEO of eBroselow. “Our core mission is to prevent medication errors. In an emergency situation, seconds matter and there’s often no time to go through lengthy medication order, fulfillment, and administration processes. SafeDose was created by the inventors of the world-renowned Broselow Tape, which has saved countless lives. We have developed this free digital equivalent of the tape to honor their legacy.”
SafeDose provides a Technology Assisted Double Check™ (TADC) at every point in the medication delivery process. Physicians, pharmacists, and nurses can use it to make sure they can double check an order for the correct dose in mgs and mls, as well as detailed critical administration instructions. SafeDose takes less than 20 seconds to use and has safeguarded both patients and clinicians millions of times.
“Acquiring new healthcare technology solutions can often be a cumbersome, frustrating, and lengthy process,” said Gobron. “Even at our inexpensive price-points, hospitals, EDs, EMS, and urgent care facilities can struggle to procure a valuable tool like SafeDose. We are committed to protecting our most vulnerable patients and believe that cost and bureaucracy should not be an impediment to safety.”
The paid versions of SafeDose which include the ISMP High Alert Medication TADC module, an ED module, a Neonatal module, and an Enterprise module with American Society of Health-System Pharmacists’ (ASHP) AHSF DI Essentials content are available at their current affordable pricing options. All SafeDose Modules are also FHIR-enabled for integration to FHIR-compliant electronic health record systems.
Anyone interested in the free version of SafeDose and a detailed description of the content, should access the eBroselow web site (www.ebroselow.com/digitaltape).
