Picis announced its Perioperative and Critical Care solutions version 8.3, which offers new tools to help clinicians perform medication interaction checks, manage costs associated with surgery, standardize patient-care documentation and analysis, and streamline reporting processes to qualify for American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) federal funding.
New features in Perioperative and Critical Care 8.3:
- Automated medication interaction checks, which present potential interaction and allergy information to clinicians as an integrated piece of a patient’s chart right in the operating room (OR), flagging any potential adverse effects in near real time.
- Content Library of clinical documentation best practices for quick reference by clinicians. This reference information supports consistency and compliance of perioperative and critical care standards.
- Quality Reporting Portal, which captures and automatically analyzes hospital patient and compliance data and generates regulatory reports that demonstrate meaningful use of health information technology and adherence with national quality measures, including the Surgical Care Improvement Process (SCIP), Physician Quality Reporting Initiative (PQRI) and Joint Commission requirements. The Web-based platform makes it easy for hospital IT departments to access current information for reports.
