I'm a veterinarian and am reasonably tech savvy, but no hacker by any means. I was wondering if I could get some general advice/guidance on an idea.
In human medicine, there are fancy (and very expensive) IV pumps that can connect up to a wireless network in order to communicate with an electronic medical record. I've been trying to figure out if it would be possible to make a cheap "wireless module" of sorts for a much less expensive veterinary IV pump. A pump like this...

I'd like to be able to somehow get the current settings for the pump (current rate, whether it's running or not, amount infused, etc.) and spit them out to a web server that could then be used to generate some sort of browser interface that would allow me to centrally/remotely monitor all the pumps currently in use in a clinic. These are not "smart" pumps at all, but I figure they at least have to spit out those settings to the LED display? What I'm wondering is if anyone has a general idea of how those settings might somehow be intercepted from the pump? Would it maybe be possible somehow with GPIO on a Pi?
Thanks in advance for the help!
