Jackson, Mich.,—Plexus Technology Group, LLC (Plexus TG), a market-leading, best-of-breed anesthesia information management systems (AIMS) provider, announces they were chosen by Reston Anesthesia Associates, P.C., Stonesprings Anesthesia Associates, LTD and Outpatient Anesthesia Services of Reston to install their anesthesia documentation solution in two acute care hospitals and one surgery center located in the D.C. metro area. The HCA healthcare facilities where they plan to integrate with Plexus TG’s anesthesia electronic recordkeeping system include Reston Hospital and Reston Surgery Center in Reston, VA, and StoneSprings Hospital Center located in Dulles, VA. Together these three anesthesia groups, comprised of fifty providers, selected Plexus TG over other vendors because of their expertise integrating with MEDITECH’s electronic medical record (EMR) and their ability to interface with the group’s billing platform.
The Reston, VA, consortium was looking for a mobile electronic anesthesia management system that would simplify the documentation process and provide their clinicians with access to surgery schedules and patient demographics. With Plexus TG’s comprehensive solution, Anesthesia Touch™, they found an intuitive, easy-to-use system with proven interoperability with their hospital’s MEDITECH system. In addition, Anesthesia Touch will streamline their billing process by electronically delivering complete documentation to the billing office. The billing integration will save time and increase efficiency with more complete diagnosis documentation, built-in smart reminders to prevent missing case data and electronic record transfer.
"As we enter the digital age in medicine, it is important for our business to evolve and become more efficient, as well as clinically relevant in order to maintain ourselves at the forefront of healthcare,” said Eric Shea, DO, Chairman, Reston Anesthesia Associates. “We chose Plexus as our anesthesia EMR provider based on its reputation, its integration with MEDITECH’s EMR, its capabilities to track our quality data, and the ability to work with our business office to streamline our data and billing efficiencies."
“We are pleased the Reston anesthesia groups recognize the benefits of our system to enhance clinical data capture for quality reporting, streamline their workflow and improve the quality of care,” commented Tony Mira, CEO of Plexus Technology Group. “Our highly skilled implementation team is working very closely with the providers and hospital personnel to ensure the system is configured to meet their needs both in system integration and client care.”
