Surgical Information Systems Debuts Latest Version Of Perioperative Patient Tracking And Communication Engine At AORN Congress
Date:3/6/2013

ATLANTA, March 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Surgical Information Systems ('SIS'), a leader in perioperative information systems, announced today that the latest version of its SIS Com patient tracking and communication engine is now available. SIS Com Version 3.3, which has a new look-and-feel and advanced functionality that sets it apart from other patient tracking systems on the market, made its debut at AORN Congress 2013 on March 4-6 in San Diego.

Traditionally, tracking patients requires multiple phone calls and time spent walking back and forth between operating rooms. Information displayed on SIS Com displays strategically placed throughout the department, as well as proactive notifications via text or email, has been shown to eliminate over 50% of phone calls in the perioperative department. Displays in waiting rooms also apprise family members of their loved one's status while protecting patient privacy.

The streamlined look of SIS Com enables nurses, surgeons and anesthesia providers to see patient and case information, including milestones and critical notifications such as latex allergies, in a very readable format.  With this information, caregivers are able to quickly make decisions that can have a positive impact on throughput and help improve the patient's surgical experience.

Because caregivers rely so heavily on the SIS Com boards, it is important that the information is timely.  The underlying SIS Com technology helps ensure that SIS Com displays update almost instantly once milestones are documented, such as when scheduled surgeries change, move or are cancelled, and when patients move to the next phase of care.

The OR schedule and clinical documentation in the SIS Solution drive updates in SIS Com, including start and stop times, patient information, notifications, procedures, patient milestones, and names of care team members – all of which is configurable based on a facility's needs. Updates also are made to SIS Com through SIS Milestone Capture, which is a mobile application that allows staff members to quickly check off key milestones in Pre-op such as when the lab technician has drawn blood, the nurse receives lab results, or the surgeon or chaplain has visited. Using mobile touch screens such as iPads makes it easy to click a button and alert the entire staff of the patients' status as they get ready for surgery.

By displaying milestone and case information throughout the day and proactively notifying caregivers of changes, SIS Com helps keep everyone on the same page. "Effective communication in the OR is paramount to running an efficient OR with a focus on throughput and patient satisfaction," said Ed Daihl . "Our clients have proven SIS Com to be an indispensable tool that not only replaces OR white boards but serves as a communication engine that supports the entire care team by improving communications on the day of surgery." 

At AORN Congress, SIS demonstrated how the entire SIS Solution helps hospitals provide coordinated care in their OR. In addition to their integrated communication solutions, SIS also showcased their intelligent and agile scheduling tools and clinician-friendly documentation workflows at the show.
