Date:4/1/2009

In the current economic environment, hospitals are seeking technology solutions that will help them improve patient safety and realize a quick return on investment. In addition to providing a clean and legible electronic anesthesia record, Nebraska Orthopaedic Hospital chose SIS Anesthesia because of the system's capacity to increase efficiencies through the reduction of documentation time and cost of customizing charts, as well as optimize financial performance by increasing drug reimbursement and reducing the number of delayed or canceled cases.

"Patient safety and superior care outcomes is the focus at Nebraska Orthopaedic Hospital," said Nebraska Orthopaedic Hospital CEO, Tom Macy. "We are confident that implementing SIS Anesthesia will positively impact outcomes. Its ease of use and automatic data capture mean physicians will be able to spend more time focused on patient care and less time documenting each case."

SIS Anesthesia automates Anesthesia Preop and Anesthesia Intraop processes. Information from Anesthesia Preop populates Anesthesia Intraop, so there is no need to re-enter information. When these components are implemented together, the benefits are multiplied as accurate data flows from one component to another, creating an information value chain that ultimately enables better patient care, creates innumerable efficiencies, and helps ease the complexities of anesthesiology.

"We continue to upgrade SIS Anesthesia with even more patient safety features," said Ed Daihl, CEO at SIS. "Enhanced drug capabilities provide for improved visibility and control of the management of invasive lines, intake and output balance, and medication history. It's a system that is more powerful than ever and is designed to provide immediate value to hospitals, which is critical during the current economic crisis."

In addition to providing Nebraska Orthopaedic Hospital with a powerful anesthesia management system, SIS will guide the hospital through an implementation methodology that is both proven and practical. The guiding principles - make implementations easier and control variance to achieve great outcomes every time - provide structure to the project that result in intentional, efficient and consistent outcomes for clients. The SIS Methodology, in combination with training and support through SIS Academy and SIS Central (SIS client portal), offers a total client experience that is unmatched in the industry.
