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 it's working with Interface People (IPeople), a premiere healthcare integration provider, to offer a discrete controlled-substance reconciliation feature that is available to all Plexus TG clients. This powerful functionality provides advanced integration from MEDITECH’s Pharmacy module (PHA) to Plexus TG’s anesthesia EMR, Anesthesia Touch™, including formulary synchronization.
Plexus TG recognizes controlled-substance reconciliation is a major responsibility shared by pharmacists and anesthesia. By integrating dispensing information with drug administration information, reconciliation is easier for all users. Anesthesia Touch can remind providers in real time to document drugs and Pharmacy can see the combined information in complete medication reconciliation reports. Sharing data allows all users to compare the controlled-substances that were dispensed from the medication cabinets with the given amounts recorded in an AIMS.
In addition, Plexus TG and IPeople will continue to offer enhanced bi-directional integration from MEDITECH’s EHR to Plexus TG’s anesthesia EMR, Anesthesia Touch, which includes preoperative data import. This functionality of preoperative data into MEDITECH and discrete data from MEDITECH is available for customers that are on MAGIC, Client/Server (C/S) and all 6.x versions including EXPANSE.
“We are excited to work with IPeople to expand our capabilities and provide another option for controlled-substance reconciliation to our extended client base. Working together on the preoperative imports will significantly enhance the integration capabilities between Plexus TG’s Anesthesia Touch software and our client’s MEDITECH EHR systems,” comments Tony Mira, CEO of Plexus Technology Group.
