Capital District Health Authority and IWK Health Centre to Implement Anesthesia Information Management System

RICHMOND HILL, Ontario, June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Draeger Medical Canada, Inc. today announced the award of a contract to provide an advanced Anesthesia Information Management System (AIMS) for the Capital District Health Authority and IWK Health Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Innovian Anesthesia is the next generation of the most comprehensive information technology solution for the safe delivery and management of anesthesia. It is currently being used successfully in over 130 hospitals worldwide.

The Capital District Health Authority (CDHA) is Nova Scotia's largest provider of health services. As an academic district, CDHA operates hospitals, health centres and community-based programs, serving 400,000 residents and providing specialist services to the rest of Nova Scotia and Atlantic Canada.

IWK Health Centre is a prominent teaching and research hospital founded in 1909 to provide care for women, children and families in the Maritime Provinces and beyond. IWK and CDHA serve as the referral centres for the entire Maritime Provinces with a population of approximately 1.8 million.

"We are honored to partner with the Capital District Health Authority and the IWK Health Centre as they fulfill their mission to continuously enhance delivery of patient care, while improving the efficiency of their operations and performance," said Jeff Wilding, General Manager, Draeger Medical Canada, Inc.

Dr. Michael F. Murphy, Clinical Chief of Anesthesiology at Capital District Health Authority commented: "The AIMS system is a powerful tool that helps decrease medical errors, improve efficiency, and decrease health delivery costs. Data is automatically collected for regulatory compliance, billing and research. Users can quickly access a wide range of information for continuous improvement of healthcare delivery."

The patient-focused system provides a seamless flow of critical information for the safe delivery of anesthesia from pre-op through surgical and post-op care, data collection and billing. Prior to surgery, Innovian captures all the vital pre-op information including a patient's previous surgical history, allergy data and current tests to evaluate a patient's specific care needs.

During surgery, the system gives doctors and nurses the information they need to focus on the patient, flag potential problems and enable quicker therapeutic responses. It improves post-op care by enabling clinicians and nurses to proactively prepare for a patient's arrival. It provides them with instantaneous access to information and the ability to remotely view surgical operations in progress.

Innovian Anesthesia is manufactured by Draeger Medical AG & Co. KG.
