iMDsoft Gets Strong Vote of Confidence in New KLAS Anesthesia Documentation Report

100% of iMDsoft clients include MV-OR AIMS in their long-term plans, citing anesthesiologist preference and seamless interfacing capabilities

NEEDHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- iMDsoft®’s Anesthesia Information Management System, MV-ORTM, was reviewed in the “Anesthesia Documentation 2011: Slow but Steady Progress” report published by KLAS, an independent research and consulting firm that monitors healthcare technology vendors.

The report notes that “Early feedback suggests iMDsoft bucks the best-of-breed trend. Of initial iMDsoft survey respondents, 100% included iMDsoft in their long-term plans, citing anesthesiologist preference and high confidence for seamless interfacing with clinical and surgical systems.”

In iMDsoft’s performance overview, the report offers the following assessment of MV-OR: “The product offers strong customizability, deep functionality, and ease of use. According to providers, they can interface well with EMR systems, and so far iMDsoft has carried through on promises.” MV-OR’s seamless integration capabilities received strong reviews throughout the report: "Interestingly, iMDsoft seems to have found the secret other best-of-breed vendors struggle with: seamless interfacing."

MV-OR generates a comprehensive anesthesia record, including accurate tracking of events, medications, and procedures. The system ensures that all billable events are registered, maximizing both professional fee capture and hospital billing. MV-OR supports the OR workflow and documentation processes, and has powerful decision support tools which improve patient care and adherence to internal protocols and regulatory guidelines.

The report evaluated ten vendors, including Picis, Cerner, GE, Philips, McKesson, and others, and is based on the responses of 189 clients in North America. Respondents evaluated vendors in the following categories: sales & contracting, implementation & training, functionality & upgrades, service & support, and general satisfaction.

“It is very gratifying to see MV-OR so well-reviewed by clients and KLAS analysts,” said Phyllis Gotlib, CEO, iMDsoft. “Our overall performance score confirms the value of our system in the most demanding clinical settings.”
