The FDA has invited manufacturers of infusion pumps to contribute instructions for use and product information to a new agency-sponsored website on devices intended for home healthcare use. The agency wants information on pumps marketed during or after 1984. The decision to consolidate such information in a central location is the result of a public meeting in June 2001 by the agency's home healthcare committee. The panel decided that promoting the safe use of infusion pumps was a significant health challenge.
