Surgical Information Systems Introduces 'SIS OR View' to Maximize Communication and Improve Patient Safety in the Operating Room
Date:3/1/2010

ATLANTA, March 1 /PRNewswire/ -- From the HIMSS Conference in Atlanta, Ga. today Surgical Information Systems (SIS) introduced SIS OR View as the first fully integrated in-room perioperative dashboard.  The solution's real-time display completely evolves the way perioperative teams work together by providing visual communication of pertinent case information for the entire OR care team.  A dynamic, customizable display increases patient safety by keeping clinicians, surgeons and anesthesiologists better informed with vital patient and procedure information.

The configurable wide screen display provides visual information on case details, medical and surgical history, procedures, observations, staff in-room, lab and test results, milestones, checklists, time-out forms and patient allergies.  These critical data points, along with alerts and checklists that facilitate quality processes, are visually accessible to all members of the perioperative team – in the operating room, during the surgical procedure.  This ensures that the right people are working from the right information at the right time.

"As the perioperative specialist, SIS' singular focus has always been simplifying the surgical care process while providing clear, accurate documentation as an automatic by-product of clinical workflow," said SIS CEO Ed Daihl.  "With SIS OR View, we have taken that specialized focus to the next level by building on our single database architecture that is unique and unmatched in the industry.  The SIS solution helps streamline every phase of perioperative workflow and provides customized views by caregiver such as surgeon, OR nurse and anesthesiologist.  SIS OR View consolidates perioperative information without the need for additional interfaces or integrations to build or maintain, providing a real-time display of information to the entire team precisely when it is needed.  This reduces surgical complications while simultaneously streamlining workflow."

Many of the safety issues originating in the OR are founded in communication problems – something that SIS OR View is designed to eliminate.  The highly visual wide screen display is easily viewed by the entire perioperative team and makes it easy to fully comply with patient safety and pay-for-performance policies including those from: Joint Commission Universal Protocol, Joint Commission National Patient Safety Goals (NPSGs), Surgical Care Improvement Project (SCIP), Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and World Health Organization (WHO).

SIS OR View promotes the highest level of patient safety by enabling good teamwork and a high level of procedural awareness, and by mapping workflow to quality hospital processes.  Improved communication and the availability of information to the entire team facilitates quality processes with features like checklists that are designed to eliminate serious errors such as wrong-site, wrong procedure and wrong person surgery.  Other benefits include:

  • Avoidance of allergic or adverse reaction
  • Verification that milestones are documented in the correct order
  • Increased awareness by all OR team members
  • Facilitation of safe hand-offs
  • Effective exchange of critical patient information
  • Reduction of verbal miscommunication
  • Visual indicator comparing scheduled case time to actual time elapsed

As the first solution of its kind to be fully integrated with a complete perioperative solution, SIS OR View is available as part of the SIS suite of industry-leading products including the AHA-endorsed SIS Scheduling, SIS Analytics and SIS Com, in addition to the HFMA Peer Reviewed SIS Rules-Based Charging.  SIS Solutions enable healthcare organizations to drive improved profitability, operational efficiency, patient safety and quality of care.
