Plexus Information Systems, Inc. (Plexus IS), a market-leading provider of Anesthesia Information Management Systems (AIMS), announced today that Tufts Medical Center went live with Anesthesia Touch™, a full-featured AIMS that automates the anesthesia documentation process. The clinicians utilize the iOS iPad technology in their preoperative and postoperative rooms and the Windows touchscreen technology in their intraoperative rooms. Tufts Medical Center is an academic medical center located in downtown Boston, Massachusetts, home to both a full-service hospital for adults and Floating Hospital for Children.
Plexus IS' Anesthesia Touch improves workflow processes, enhances patient safety and increases mobility for Tufts Medical Center's anesthesia providers. The tight integration by Anesthesia Touch with other systems and equipment in their operating rooms enhances communication between their perioperative personnel.
"It was extremely important for us to have a customizable AIMS system with an intuitive and clinician-friendly user interface to suit the diverse needs of an academic medical center," said Scott Segal, M.D., MHCM, Anesthesiologist-in-Chief at Tufts Medical Center. "The capability of our AIMS to integrate with other hospital systems ensures that our patients receive the highest level of anesthesia care at our Medical Center."
"We are proud to partner with Tufts Medical Center as their AIMS provider. They are an important regional healthcare provider with a long history of providing outstanding patient care," said Albert Woo, M.D., President at Plexus Information Systems. "Comprehensive reporting will also help Tufts Medical Center to effectively demonstrate quality performance compliance and will help anesthesia providers take full advantage of the clinical and financial benefits of the meaningful use incentive program."
