US healthcare organisation Virtua will implement new software solutions at its four acute care hospitals and five ambulatory surgery clinics across New Jersey so that clinical information can be delivered more quickly.

Picis’ CareSuite helps physicians track a patient’s progress from preoperative evaluation through surgery into post-anaesthesia care and recovery, the company said.

The technology allows physicians to spend more time on direct patient care rather than on administrative tasks by eliminating redundancies and improving the accuracy of information, Picis said.
