Ensure your patients are fit for surgery

Simplify your patient’s surgical journey with the Pre-Admission Testing (PAT) Desktop. A split-screen design minimizes appointment information, so you can easily organize the desktop in the way that suits you best. You can:

  • Manage PAT visit status boards and pre-op call lists that auto-populate based on your procedure-specific workflows.
  • Customize your PAT Desktop to display the clinical data your team needs to review — including procedure information, lab results, portal questionnaires, consent forms, PFSH, and documentation tools.
  • Easily consume patient portal questionnaire responses directly into your visit documentation.

Track patients throughout the surgical setting

Surgical Trackers monitor all perioperative information associated with a patient, in real time.

  • Interact with clinical data and decision support directly from the trackers.
  • Obtain quality metrics, alerts, and clinical decision support in real time.
  • Manage patient flow with unlimited displays based on location or status.
  • View all relevant SBAR data in one place using an embedded Hand Off feature.

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

Procedure-specific document templates provide important clinical decision support and tools to quickly and effectively document a case.

  • Record details related to the procedure with ease, including surgical times, staff present, materials used, outcomes, etc.
  • Access the patient’s MAR, transfusion administration record, interprofessional care plans, nursing assessments, Time Outs, and interventions immediately, in one centralized location within Surgical Services.
  • Share critical documentation data with other-vendor Anesthesia Information Management Systems.

"For anesthesia we are using iProcedures which interfaces directly into Expanse Surgical Services. Our CRNA's are thrilled to be using iPads that allow them to document real-time at the patient bedside, reducing errors, and saving valuable time."

"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. Additionally, the standard content statistics reporting within the Surgical Services is the envy of other nursing departments."
