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 Sunbelt Anesthesia Services, LLC (SAS), a veteran-owned and operated anesthesia staffing and management company, chose to implement its anesthesia EMR software in multiple ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) around the Jacksonville, FL area. The region’s busiest multi-specialty, state-of-the-art ambulatory surgery center was the first location to go live with Plexus TG’s anesthesia solution. Additional surgery centers and office-based locations are scheduled for implementation later this year.
“As not only the CEO but an end user myself, we have found Plexus TG’s comprehensive solution, Anesthesia Touch™, to be an intuitive, easy-to-use iPad-based anesthesia documentation system that offers complete customization of reports and supports quality data capture essential for operational decisions,” reports Dr. Nicholas Kalynych, CRNA, co-founder of SAS. “Additional notable benefits reported by our clinicians include the system’s ability to automatically capture physiological data and integrate with the surgery center’s EHR in order to access scheduling data and patient demographics all from one system.”
“The combination of Plexus TG’s ease of use, and the robust functionality it provides on a portable device like the iPad, bring many of the benefits of the EMR’s used in big hospitals, to the ASC and office-based anesthesia environments,” comments Dr. Jonathan Pabalate, DNP, CRNA and Chief Informatics Officer of SAS. “The ability to harness a robust, yet easy-to-use reporting platform with an emphasis on useful actionable data within the first week of going live was a game changer.”
SAS was focused on finding an AIMS vendor that understood the value of partnering for long- term growth and one that was willing to accommodate the specific needs of a growing, independent CRNA practice. With Plexus TG, they found not only an anesthesia solution that met all their needs, but also a partner that supports their commitment to excellence, as they expand their services throughout the region.
“We value our partnership with Sunbelt Anesthesia and we support their commitment to delivering exceptional patient care and incorporating innovative AIMS technology into their clinical workflow,” explains Tony Mira, CEO of Plexus Technology Group. “Our implementation team continues to work closely with Sunbelt Anesthesia to ensure a smooth transition for the remaining ASCs, as well as future projects.”
As an iPad-based anesthesia documentation solution, Anesthesia Touch's KLAS rating demonstrates Plexus TG’s commitment to providing complete AIMS functionality for their clients. For more information, visit www.klasresearch.com.
