2017 Award Recipient
Regenstrief National Center for Medical Device Informatics (REMEDI) Infusion Pump Collaborative Project Team, Purdue University


The award this year goes to a group that has leveraged the power of data and collaboration to drive up compliance rates with infusion pump drug libraries. The REMEDI infusion pump collaboration is the only patient safety improvement program in the country that reaches across manufacturers’ smart pump technologies to create a network of hospitals willing to share data from their drug libraries and the lessons they’ve learned to improve clinician compliance with these libraries. Hospitals in the program have reported various rates in driving up compliance with one hospital noting a 25% increase within a span of three months. REMEDI is a division of the Regenstrief Center for Healthcare Engineering at Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN.
