  • Anesthesia Preoperative Evaluation System
  • Anesthesia Consent
  • An Intraoperative Anesthesia Recordkeeping System
  • Anesthesia Postoperative Evaluation
  • An Administration Web Interface

Anesthesia Touch's underlying architecture and innovative user interface are unrivaled. It is integrated into your facility's registration and scheduling system, enabling the application to identify and retrieve important patient information, such as demographics, allergies, medications, and medical conditions; in the OR, it integrates with monitoring devices and machines to automatically record vitals and clinical data. Charting is fast and efficient, with purpose built screens and documentation macros for pre-operative, anesthesia, and post-operative records, there is no need to "hunt and peck" to find or document information.

Intuitive, Fast, and Easy to Use

Designed by an anesthesiologist, Anesthesia Touch, is a full-featured, scalable, easy to use AIMS that works on an iPad and touchscreen Windows workstation, automating documentation with the following features:

  • Allows simultaneous record access
  • Enhances flexibility with both Windows and  Apple iPad/iOS clients for superior portability
  • Captures data faster and is more comprehensive than a paper record
  • Optimizes perioperative workflow with robust interoperability and connectivity
  • Improves the quality and efficiency in the OR with an electronic intraoperative anesthesia record that is easy to use
  • Saves time by automatically capturing physiologic data, thereby eliminating manual data entry
  • Streamlines preoperative workflow with real-time integration by accessing patient registration, surgery schedules, patient assessment, and lab results
  • Improves reimbursement with an easily searchable coding module that provides clinicians with full access to ICD-10 and CPT with crosswalk to ASA anesthesia codes
  • Allows clinicians to quickly and easily complete postop documentation and electronically sign off on the case
  • Streamlines the billing process by electronically delivering complete documentation to the billing office
  • Promotes compliance with national quality initiatives, such as PQRS/QCDR and NACOR
  • Enhances accessibility and quality of patient data for research and analytics
  • Automates medication and supply charge capture

During our search for a replacement system, we hoped to select a tablet-enabled solution. Having used Anesthesia Touch for Several months, I can look bcak and say that was absolutely the right decision.

Document with iOS or Windows

The Anesthesia Touch solution is available as both a Windows application and an iOS (iPad) app—choose either or both. The mobility of a hybrid or tablet solution is a strong complement to anesthesia workflow, as anesthesiologists provide care in many physical locations. Clinicians can document on one platform and return to the case on another based on what's available near the patient.

Anesthesia Touch leverages the simplicity of deploying and supporting on both platforms, from one-click application installs, to server side configuration and automatic updates. Anesthesia Touch truly has the simplicity of an app.
