MetaVision® Anesthesia Management System (AIMS) and web-based pre-op platform will be implemented across the hospital’s perioperative environment
NEEDHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- iMDsoft, a leader in clinical information systems, announced today that Albemarle Health, in Elizabeth City, North Carolina, has chosen to implement the MetaVision solution throughout their pre- and intra-operative environments. The MetaVision Anesthesia Information Management System (AIMS) will be installed in 12 anesthetic locations. myMV™, iMDsoft’s web-based communication platform, will be used to streamline pre-operative data collection and evaluation from the surgeon’s offices via internet-based forms.
Albemarle Health chose MetaVision in order to standardize and improve data collection, to track performance measures, and to report on anesthesia quality and compliance indicators. MetaVision’s powerful rule-based decision support tools will enhance the hospital’s ability to react prospectively to deteriorations in patient condition and deviations from protocol, to promote the delivery of best practices, and to ensure that quality and regulatory requirements are met.
The MetaVision Anesthesia Information Management System builds on a decade of experience worldwide and supports the entire perioperative workflow. It generates a complete, accurate, billable anesthesia record including accurate tracking of events, medications, and procedures. Customers have proven that MetaVision promotes patient safety, enhances compliance with quality initiatives, and facilitates cost containment, revenue capture, and research.
iMDsoft’s myMV facilitates secure data collection prior to the day of surgery at remote sites like the surgeon’s office via web-based forms. Patient data is collected from hospital information systems, including anesthetic history, labs, allergies, current medications and data from previous surgeries. myMV facilitates delivery of a complete data set to the hospital, eliminating duplicate patient interviews.
“In keeping with the Albemarle Hospital mission and vision to provide high quality health services to every patient, every day, the iMDsoft clinical information system will further enhance our excellent anesthesia services. The MetaVision solution matched our unique needs in order to maximize the gathering and dissemination of information and to assist in meeting regulatory requirements,” said Suzanne Stonikinis, Director of Surgical Services, Albemarle Hospital.
