HIPAA-Compliant Surgical Trackers: Enter, edit, and monitor all perioperative information associated with a patient, in real time. Data entered through the tracker is accessible to all providers associated with that patient.

Case Record Documentation: Document the entire perioperative episode; information flows directly to the patient’s electronic record in real time.

6

Director/Manager Desktop: Executives make more informed decisions when they use this desktop to generate specific data, break down statistics, perform cost analyses, and review block utilization.

Along with the value of saved time and efficiency, Materials Management ensures that we not only have the appropriate supplies for each specific surgery, but that the billing and reordering for those items are done smoothly within the IntraOp documentation section.

Document the entire perioperative episode, from Pre-Op to PACU.


Easily record operative text, surgical outcomes, staff present, and surgical times.

  • Safely administer medications and blood products using the embedded eMAR and Transfusion Administration Record.
  • Manage both Pre-Op and Post-Op follow-up calls and assessments with system-generated worklists.
  • Document multidisciplinary care plans right from the surgical record, where they flow from department to department, and directly to the patient’s electronic record.

The standard content statistics reporting within the Surgical Services is the envy of other nursing departments.

Monitor inventory and costs in real time

Full integration with our Materials Management solution means you know your inventory levels and usage at all times. Inventory levels are automatically decremented in real time as supplies are used in the surgical case, and a queued orders feature will allow for a streamlined ordering process for physicians. Plus, automatic charge capture sends materials-related charges directly to patient accounting, increasing revenue.

  • Avoid inventory shortages and overages
  • Minimize losses and prevent waste
  • Track implants and explants
  • Scan items and add them directly to the surgical record
  • Create, manage, and print requisitions for more inventory items
  • Pinpoint changes to inventory when items are lent to, or borrowed from, another location.

Track patients throughout the surgical setting.

Stay up to the minute on surgical activity with HIPAA-compliant trackers. One look tells you when cases are on time, delayed, or cancelled. SCIP and quality metrics can be monitored in real time for improved patient outcomes. You can even build a tracker for loved ones in the waiting area, using custom patient identifiers for maximum confidentiality.
