It was recently announced that UMass Memorial Health Care, the largest healthcare system in Central and Western Massachusetts, has selected Picis CareSuite perioperative and anesthesia solutions for more than 60 operating rooms in its five hospitals. UMass Memorial chose Picis integrated technology to deliver clinical documentation and financial information more quickly across the system.

Using Picis total perioperative automation solution, UMass Memorial plans to implement a single integrated operating room management system across the five hospitals, with the goal of streamlining clinician workflow through the entire surgical process from pre-admission testing through the post anesthesia care unit and recovery. The Picis solution will help unify and centralize documentation on one perioperative platform, while capturing data from medical devices directly in the patient record. The Picis solution is designed to automatically update the patient's electronic health record and make the information readily available for use in treatment and management reporting.

Picis' solution looks to eliminate redundancies and improve the accuracy of information, allowing for more time to be spent on patient care and less time charting, searching for information or transcribing data from other systems. As a result, clinicians and families are better able to track the progress of a patient across the surgical pathway, recognize milestones and prepare for each step in the process.

UMass Memorial plans to implement Picis OR Manager, Picis Perioperative Dashboard, Anesthesia Manager, PACU Manager, Extelligence OR and Extelligence Anesthesia, all part of the CareSuite family of high-acuity solutions.
