Breast Milk

The MediCopia Milk application ensures that the right infant receives the right milk container, and is targeted for use in the NICU and Nursery. MediCopia Milk application is interfaced to the hospital information system (ADT) which provides MediCopia with patient census information. Hospitals must follow the same identification precautions with breast milk as they do with other bodily fluids that are dispensed or provided to their patients. The MediCopia Milk application comes in two versions. First, the MediCopia Lite product simply matches the scanning of the infant’s barcoded FIN or MRN against the barcoded FIN or MRN label affixed to the milk container. This version allows for a quick match between the infant and milk container requiring little administrative time yet it provides a much improved level of security over the current visual identification method. It also can be used simply to match an infant with the mother when the infant is brought in from the nursery. And second, MediCopia Milk Plus offers a full suite of features including inventory and tracking, milk bank donations, donor/infant management, dividing milk units, supplements, and formula distribution by calorie.

For those Lattice customers who have already implemented Lattice’s MediCopia, the nation’s leading specimen collection system, they will be pleased to know that they will not have to pay for the cost of an ADT feed or servers to run this application since they have already acquired these items.
