MEDHOST, provider of leading healthcare throughput and emergency department software, today announced that it has expanded its portfolio of easy-to-use, intuitive healthcare software with the addition of the Advanced Perioperative Information Management System (PIMS). As a comprehensive, clinician-driven suite of applications, PIMS supports the entire continuum of surgical care, from initial consult, complete anesthesia and nurse charting and decision support to post-surgery discharge, and helps enhance clinical outcomes while improving provider efficiency, regulatory compliance and reimbursement.

MEDHOST added the Vanderbilt University Medical Center-built perioperative solution to its portfolio through the acquisition of Acuitec, LLC by HealthTech, a healthcare information technology company of which MEDHOST is a part.

“With the MEDHOST Advanced Perioperative Information Management System, surgery departments – generally a large source of revenue and costs for providers – can be more efficiently managed to maximize their positive impact on overall facility efficiency and profitability,” said Craig Herrod, president of MEDHOST. “We’re excited to bring even more value to MEDHOST Customers by adding this dynamic perioperative solution to our offerings.”

Like MEDHOST’s industry-leading Emergency Department Information System (EDIS), the development of applications in the MEDHOST PIMS solution was heavily influenced by clinicians so it would fit within existing perioperative workflows rather than inconvenience surgeons, anesthesiologists or nurses.

“Software that doesn’t complement how clinicians think and work will only result in lack of use, and worse, be detrimental to patient care, safety and satisfaction,” added Herrod. “MEDHOST PIMS aligns with workflows that clinicians already know, so it is very quickly and widely adopted. Because PIMS replaces paper charts with instantly available digital data, clinicians involved in the perioperative cycle like anesthesiologists can complete tasks faster and more accurately while spending more quality time with patients.”
