UCH goes live with perioperative system to provide continuous patient record

GE Healthcare : 05 December, 2007  (New Product)
University of Colorado Hospital has gone live with GE Healthcare’s Centricity Perioperative System to streamline surgical services across five business segments.
The solution integrates anaesthesia, nursing, scheduling, surgery management and pre-procedures services into one complete patient record that helps caregivers provide efficient and safe patient care.

“The need for a complete and continuous record of any Perioperative event, from pre-procedures to post-PACU, drove our decision to select GE and Centricity Periop,” said Katherine Halverson Carpenter, RN, MBA, CNOR, director of perioperative services. “The development of an integrated electronic Medical record for nursing and anaesthesia was highly valued by all the disciplines.”

With integrated Nursing and Anesthesia documentation, clinicians can capture and communicate vital patient data throughout the Perioperative environment. The solution creates an integrated workflow to streamline data input that shares essential patient information and simplifies documentation throughout the Perioperative continuum of care. The implementation of Centricity Perioperative Manager and Anesthesia provides a complete Perioperative solution for UCH.

“Automating and connecting the entire patient care process is key for a successful perioperative workflow,” said France Pitera, general manager, Specialty Care Businesses. “Centricity Perioperative completes the end to end process from surgery management through inventory control, doctors preference cards, and scheduling to the clinical solutions in nursing and anaesthesia documentation.”

Dr Leslie Jameson, MD, vice chair of the Department of Anesthesia, noted the project success was due to proper training of anaesthesia end users and the partnership that GE Healthcare and the University of Colorado Hospital developed throughout the implementation. “GE has always understood and worked with UCH to accomplish a common goal - successful implementation with a superior product.”
