Jackson, Mich.,—Plexus Technology Group, LLC (Plexus TG), a fully KLAS-rated, market-leading, best-of-breed provider of anesthesia information management systems (AIMS), is pleased to announce they will be exhibiting at the ASHP Midyear 2016 Clinical Meeting & Exhibition in Las Vegas this weekend alongside their partner Codonics, a global leader in patient safety and image documentation solutions. This five-day event is attended by pharmacy professionals from all around the world with its emphasis on improving patient care and medication safety.
Together they will be showcasing Plexus TG’s EMR and anesthesia medication cabinet solution in collaboration with the Codonics Safe Label System® (SLS), offering a complete answer for barcode medication verification of IV meds at the point of care in the operating room.
“Our vision for the Safe Label System has always been to meld it into the clinicians’ everyday workflow,” said Randy Tucholski, director OEM sales at Codonics. “At the ASHP Midyear, attendees can see firsthand a system where the SLS, cabinet, and clinical record work seamlessly together to provide unparalleled medication safety and compliance.”
Pharmacists familiar with the challenges of the surgical environment will appreciate how this unique solution enables inventory tracking and controlled substance reconciliation tightly coupled with the anesthesia EMR, thereby avoiding the pitfalls of duplicate entry.
“Anesthetic care during surgery requires real-time access to a wide variety of medications. Asking anesthesiologists to use disparate systems to document dispensing, clinical delivery and waste events can negatively impact workflows, and may experience less-than-perfect user acceptance,” explained Tony Mira, CEO of Plexus Technology Group. “We are pleased to offer a medication cart solution that puts medication safety first, while integrating inventory dispensing and wasting with the intraoperative anesthesia record.”
The Plexus TG Pharmacy Touch solution makes medication management simple with its intuitive, easy-to-use system that delivers anesthesia providers and their pharmacies an integrated solution with controlled-access cabinets, barcode syringe labeling, closed-loop reconciliation and automated charging.
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.
