Abington Health in Philadelphia, US, has chosen Surgical Information Systems’ (SIS) perioperative IT technology for improved patient care and procedural efficiency.

The two-hospital health system will leverage the technology for optimising operating room (OR) performance.

Abington nurse director of informatics Diane Humbrecht said the technology will improve access to patient information at the point of care and increase the efficiency of the OR.

"The use of easily visible and highly integrated patient data within the OR environment reduces costs and streamlines regulatory reporting."

"It gives us the ability to track important data from the OR; automate our patient tracking to improve accuracy and efficiency; and fully integrate information from the OR with our Allscripts enterprise record," Humbrecht added.

The SIS solution will implement a single perioperative record that includes modules for surgery scheduling, including pre-admission testing (PAT) and resource scheduling, nursing and anaesthesia documentation, rules-based bill charging, advanced analytics, and patient tracking and communications.

The platform incorporates the AORN SYNTEGRITY Framework, which provides clinical content that complements the SIS nursing documentation system with the Perioperative Nursing Data Set (PNDS) third edition and standardised documentation fields that guide patient-centred care, according to SIS.

SIS CEO Ed Daihl said the technology will help Abington in offering pertinent information to regulatory bodies that monitor hospital quality and cost.

"The use of easily visible and highly integrated patient data within the OR environment reduces costs and streamlines regulatory reporting," Daihl added.
