iMDsoft Technology Chosen for Children's Hospital Boston

MetaVision Anesthesia Management System (AIMS) will be implemented across the hospital’s perioperative environment

NEEDHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- iMDsoft, a leading global software provider, announced today that Children's Hospital Boston, one of the largest and most prestigious pediatric hospitals in the US, has chosen to implement the company’s MetaVision Anesthesia Information Management System. Children's Hospital Boston is ranked first in the US for more specialties than any other children's hospital (U.S. News & World Report). MetaVision will be implemented in all anesthetizing locations throughout the hospital.

MetaVision generates a complete, accurate, billable anesthesia record and provides comprehensive support for the entire perioperative process. It features powerful decision support and analysis tools that promote patient safety, enhance quality initiatives, and help facilitate cost containment, revenue capture, research, and compliance with multiple government, payor, and hospital protocols.

Children’s Hospital Boston is home to the world's largest research enterprise based at a pediatric medical center, and receives more federal funding than any other pediatric facility in the US. MetaVision will enhance the Hospital’s ability to analyze patient data and outcomes, offering clinicians a rich data resource for their research projects.

With several other hospitals within the Harvard teaching group, including Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s, already using MetaVision, this implementation opens the door to potential benchmarking for quality assurance and research collaboration across the group.

A major factor in Children's selection of MetaVision was the system’s powerful decision support tools, which enhance performance through dynamic monitoring of patient status. The system is also fully configurable to suit the specific needs of the pediatric teaching hospital, and can be tailored precisely to meet its unique workflow.

“Having carefully evaluated several commercial anesthesia information management systems (AIMS), we chose iMDsoft’s MetaVision in large part because it has the most intuitive user interface,” said Dr. Joan Quaine, AIMS Medical Director at the hospital. “Implementing an AIMS that is easy to use is essential for maintaining patient safety in the fast-paced setting where we contemporaneously document and provide anesthesia care for critically ill children.”

"It is an honor to be a part of Children's Hospital Boston’s mission of first-rate patient care and safety. iMDsoft strives to provide ground-breaking technology to its hundreds of client sites all over the world,” said Phyllis Gotlib, CEO, iMDsoft.
