Jackson, Mich.,—Plexus Technology Group, LLC (Plexus TG), a fully KLAS-rated, market-leading, best-of-breed provider of anesthesia information management systems (AIMS), announces Wickenburg Community Hospital, a non-profit healthcare facility in Wickenburg, AZ, has successfully deployed Plexus TG’s anesthesia EMR, Anesthesia Touch™, in their brand new state-of-the-art Surgical & Diagnostic Center.
Anesthesia Touch's integration with Wickenburg Community Hospital’s EHR System, CPSI's Evident, streamlines their clinical documentation process, providing clinicians with scheduling data, patient demographics and physiological data, all from one integrated system.
Wickenburg Community Hospital chose the Anesthesia Touch solution as it equips providers with a comprehensive electronic anesthesia record that integrates well with their workflow, utilizing superior mobility and flexibility.
“I love Anesthesia Touch and my billing department cannot say enough great things about it. The Plexus anesthesia record allows for flawless billing,” explains Lisa Erlinger PhD, CRNA at Wickenburg Community Hospital. “We are so happy to have found such a great product and super service.”
"The Plexus organization has been a pleasure to work with. Implementation support has been superior and they have worked diligently to develop scheduling, demographic and summary documentation interfaces to take advantage of Evident's scheduling and registration workflow, and integrate with the hospital’s EMR," said Michael McKay, CIO at Wickenburg Community Hospital.
During surgery, anesthesia providers can now automatically capture physiological data and quickly document events and clinical actions. After surgery, they can immediately begin caring for their next patient, confident that the validation checks built in to Anesthesia Touch ensure complete documentation which flows seamlessly into the patient chart and results in a complete, accurate, billable anesthesia record.
Tony Mira, CEO of Plexus TG said, “We are delighted for the opportunity to partner with Wickenburg Community Hospital and we applaud their efforts to improve healthcare by incorporating technology that allows the clinicians to focus on patient care instead of paper charting.”
“We recognize that data integration into the anesthesia assessment is an important priority for community and rural hospitals. With that in mind, we are able to deliver an AIMS solution that is tailored to the specific needs of community and rural hospitals, both clinically and economically,” explains Joe Gentile, Plexus TG’s senior vice president of sales.
As an iPad-based anesthesia documentation solution, Anesthesia Touch's full KLAS rating demonstrates Plexus TG’s commitment to providing complete AIMS functionality for their clients. For more information, visit www.klasresearch.com.
