The IntelliDOT System integrates with Hiawatha’s Hann’s On Ascend Pharmacy System. According to the company, orders are sent via HL7 and appear on the nurse’s IntelliDOT wireless handheld device. Data elements include: patient demographic and identification information, patient allergy information, order number, ordered medications, dose amounts, dose units, SIG codes, custom dose times, route, order start/stop times and order status.
