Jackson, Mich.,—Plexus Technology Group, LLC (Plexus TG), a market-leading, best-of-breed anesthesia information management systems (AIMS) provider, delivers dental office-based anesthesia providers with a flexible electronic anesthesia record on an iPad, Anesthesia Touch™, that is tailored to their specific workflow. By automating the anesthesia documentation process, not only do providers spend less time on paperwork and more time with their patients, they also save time and money by transitioning to a paperless environment.
Key features sought out by dental anesthesia providers include a cloud-based electronic medical record (EMR) solution with extreme portability and the ability to automatically capture patient physiological data on the electronic anesthesia record. In many instances, clinicians travel to multiple locations to provide anesthesia care, so improving efficiency by integrating a paperless workflow into their daily routine is extremely important and a valuable time saver.
Several recent and established clients shared comments about their experience utilizing Anesthesia Touch and converting from paper to an electronic anesthesia record.
"Anesthesia Touch is a phenomenal, user-friendly electronic system to use for in-office anesthesia records. Not only does it track vitals seamlessly, the cloud-based server allows simple connectivity through basically any WiFi source. The electronic faxing portion of the service is one I found uniquely helpful as it enables me to pull physician clearances, medical history reports, previous specialty notes, etc. up on my iPad as soon as the fax is assigned to a patient. I would recommend this program to any anesthesia provider working in dental offices,” stated Kevin Dincher, DMD, Dentist Anesthesiologist/Owner of Anesthesia Associates of Central PA.
Peter Pfeiffer MD, Dentist Anesthesiologist/Owner of AnesthesiaMobile said, "I've been using Anesthesia Touch in my practice for the past 18 months. The functionality has been exactly what I've needed and the dental offices where I provide anesthesia love the fact that I'm 100 percent digital and not cluttering up their offices with papers."
“As a dentist, Anesthesia Touch offers a lot more than I need. Fortunately, their support team customized the software to meet my needs and allowed me to seamlessly incorporate it into my practice,” commented Michael S. Fioritto, DDS, DABOI, FAAID, Owner of Fioritto Family Dental.
“Using Anesthesia Touch has allowed me to give greater focus to total patient care. The automatic streaming of physiologic data from my Nihon Kohden monitor works seamlessly whether I am in my own office or if I travel to other offices. The charts are clear and legible and I can access them from anywhere that I have an internet connection,” said Ralph Epstein, DDS, Anesthesiologist/Owner of Distinctive Dental Services of New York. “The staff at Plexus have been wonderful to work with. They customized the program to fit my needs. In addition, as a program director of a residency program it helps me teach residents to be organized and to complete charts in an organized fashion.”
In addition, Plexus TG’s clients have access to an easy-to-use data analytics system as well as an integrated web-based scheduling application that can be used to manage their daily schedules and electronically capture patient health information in advance of surgery.
“We are continually looking for ways to improve and expand our office-based anesthesia product offering, so the feedback we receive from our clients and potential clients directly impacts our roadmap,” explained Doug Marcey, Vice President of Technology at Plexus TG. “For example, after receiving multiple requests to develop an integrated PACU nursing module that allows office-based providers to manage all their information from one system, we acknowledged its importance and started the development process with plans to roll it out later this year.”
“We recognize the need to automate and streamline the anesthesia documentation process is an important priority to providers delivering anesthesia care in office-based settings. With that in mind, we felt it was essential to offer an office-based anesthesia EMR solution that is affordable and tailored specifically to the needs of the providers,” said Tony Mira, CEO of Plexus TG.
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.
