Jackson, Mich.,—Buckeye Anesthesia Services partners with Plexus Technology Group, LLC (Plexus TG), a market-leading, best-of breed provider of anesthesia information management systems (AIMS), to successfully implement its anesthesia information management solution, Anesthesia Touch, at the Institute for Orthopaedic Surgery, a specialty hospital in Lima, Ohio. The Institute for Orthopaedic Surgery (IOS) was one of 102 hospitals out of approximately 4,000 in the US to receive a five-star Overall Hospital Quality Rating from the Centers for Medicaid & Medicare Services (CMS).
Anesthesia Touch on the iPad delivers Buckeye Anesthesia clinicians with enhanced mobility and flexibility by automatically capturing vital signs and providing access to patient demographics and surgery schedules through an interface with the facility’s electronic health records (EHR). Unlike their previous anesthesia documentation system, Plexus TG’s Anesthesia Touch is customizable to their workflow, including the ability to customize the quality information that is captured in their anesthesia EMR.
“Anesthesia Touch has become a mainstay of our practice and our staff has been extremely happy with the platform, said Paul Scheiwiller, DO, anesthesiologist & president of Buckeye Anesthesia Services.
“We are delighted Buckeye Anesthesia Services, a valued client of Anesthesia Business Consultants (ABC), chose to implement Plexus TG’s anesthesia EMR solution. In addition to streamlining their anesthesia documentation workflow, they are simplifying their billing process by electronically sending billing data directly to ABC,” explains Tony Mira, CEO of Plexus Technology Group & Anesthesia Business Consultants. “We are appreciative for the opportunity to continue to work with Buckeye Anesthesia and to support their efforts to providing the highest level of quality anesthesia care to their patients.”
Plexus TG’s Anesthesia Touch continues to receive high KLAS ratings from their clients in the anesthesia market. Visit the KLAS website at www.klasresearch.com for more information.
