  • 1. WHY AIMS WHY NOW The Top 5 Things Every Anesthesia Provider Should Know About AIMS Presented by: Marc Paradis, MD Partner, Hartford Anesthesiology Associations www.SISFirst.com
  • 2. Dr. Marc Paradis Partner, Hartford Anesthesiology Associates SIS Anesthesia user since 2006 Chairman, SIS Anesthesia Advisory Board Today’s Presenter
  • 3. Learning Topics What’s the Rush? » Why anesthesia automation now? What really works for anesthesia providers? How do you get all of the data you need in one place? Reporting and analytics to better manage patient care and your business. The power of a unified perioperative record.
  • 4. #1 What’s the Rush? One of the last paper-based areas of the hospital » Be aware of IT Department plans » Be proactive in understanding what systems are available » Represent anesthesia in all discussions/plans Quality » Legible record » Shareable record » Retrievable record » Compliance with performance improvement programs at the Federal, State and Local levels Why anesthesia automation now?
  • 5. 5 Improved Quality – Electronic, Legible & Shareable
  • 6. 6 Anesthesia Chart Patient Information Drugs and Fluids Events and Milestones Gases and Agents Vital Signs
  • 7. Labor Demand The Rand Corporation predicts a shortage of Anesthesiologists and CRNAs through 2020 » Shortages across all regions AIMS provides mineable data that can be utilized to improve scheduling and anesthesia management. » For example, provides accurate data on case times historically by provider www.rand.org
  • 8. Increased Demand for Anesthesia Services Increased surgical demand Increased patient acuity Electrophysiology and Interventional Radiology Gastroenterology Pain AIMS, particularly when combined with a surgery information system, offer communications tools that improve our efficiency because we know where patients and staff are at all times.
  • 9. 9 Electronic OR Schedule
  • 10. Barriers to AIMS Adoption Change in workflow » PreOp interview and PACU report » Learning new way to chart Initial loss in productivity during ramp-up Resources required to implement Lack of Hospital Funding and/or Priorities of hospital and IT dept. » But get in the queue These obstacles can all be overcome
  • 11. Government Mandates » Regulations » Continued drive towards quality electronic reporting » Hospital Value-Based Purchasing System − Begins Q1 2013 for discharges on or after October 1, 2012 » PQRS penalties begin in 2015 based on 2013 data An electronic record is not mandatory today but can you really meet regulatory requirements without one? Whether Now or Later, It’s time to Start Preparing
  • 12. Recap on What’s the Rush? AIMS provides many benefits including: Aiding Quality with a legible, retrievable, shareable record that also supports compliance efforts Enabling Documentation that supports billing Providing data to support the optimal use of resources It is happening with or without us… Let’s make it with us
  • 13. #2 What Really Works for Anesthesia Providers?
  • 14. 14 Intuitive AIMS Software
  • 15. Match workflow Change workflow Hardware interfaces Software interfaces Federal certification Promote best practice Improve Compliance Provide QI and productivity reports Concurrency checking Active alerts Clinical Decision Support Short implementation • Stable platform Seamless data sharing Compatibility with data warehouses Ongoing development program AIMS Important Features
  • 16. Efficient Perioperative Workflow Scheduling Pre-Admissions Nursing Pre-Op Nursing Intra-Op PACU Anesthesia Pre-Op Anesthesia Intra-Op Anesthesia is not an island
  • 17. Anesthesia is Not an Island Scheduling Pre-Admissions PACU Nursing Pre-Op Nursing Intra-Op Anesthesia Pre-Op Anesthesia Intra-Op It’s part of the workflow
  • 18. Effective Data Flow Works for Anesthesia Providers Reduces redundant documentation » Increases accuracy of information Informed caregivers improve the patient experience » Information is available to all and can be verified and not repeatedly asked for. Timeliness of information » Available to the entire team
  • 19. Flexibility Easily configurable to match your workflow » Group workflow » Individual workflow End users making these changes as their needs evolve Create contextually relevant views of information Configurable in-house; no need for vendor involvement
  • 20. Re-cap on What Really Works for Anesthesia Providers When the electronic record looks like the paper record. » Intuitive When electronic workflow matches paper workflow. » Effective data flow When the system can be configured to meet changing needs without vendor involvement. » Flexibility to adapt quickly to regulatory changes and the changing needs of your practice. » End user configurable systems really work for providers over hard-coded systems
  • 21. #3 How do you get all of the data you need in one place?
  • 22. Interfaces ADT Materials Inventory Charges Professional Services Billing Lab Results The key to a complete record is making sure key data is available from the start.
  • 23. Anesthesia is Not an Island Scheduling Pre-Admissions PACU Nursing Pre-Op Nursing Intra-Op Anesthesia Pre-Op Anesthesia Intra-Op It’s connected through a common database
  • 24. Re-cap on Getting All the Data You Need in One Place Understand the key areas of data you need – the touch points – follow the work flow Be a strong voice that all data is available from day one » Build interfaces early A unified surgery and anesthesia system will share interfaces » If you implement standalone AIMS, cover all of your interfaces to makes sure you have all the data you need
  • 25. #4 Reporting and analytics to better manage patient care and your business.
  • 26. Perioperative Analytics Turnkey Views • Anesthesia • Executive • Perioperative • Surgery Dashboard • Surgeon • Tissue Manager
  • 27. 27 Anesthesia Analytics
  • 28. Anesthesia Analytics
  • 29. 29 Anesthesia Clinical Analytics PQRS
  • 30. 30 Analytics Normothermia
  • 31. 31 Anesthesia Supports Performance Goals Physician & Staff Satisfaction • Reduce turnover times • Improve on-time starts • Accurate scheduling of procedures Surgical Schedule that runs on time 80% of the time • Fewer hypothermic patients • Improved infection control • Pain & PONV scores Reduce # of Adverse Outcomes • Compare costs for supplies & implants • Analyze labor costs & productivity • Calculate budget variances Reduce the Cost per Case Performance Goal Key Performance Indicators Tactical Steps to Achieving Success Financial Success & Profitability Clinical Safety & Excellence
  • 32. Re-cap on Reporting and Analytics Analytics will move us beyond reports to actionable intelligence Look for easy-to-use tools that do not require vendor involvement to configure or drill-down into Graphical views to track and understand key metrics » Costing » Throughput » Compliance » Quality Indicators
  • 33. #5 The power of a unified perioperative record.
  • 34. Workflow Single Database for Perioperative and Anesthesia record supports » Shared fields » Common interfaces to other systems (data), no conflicting times etc… Reduces redundant documentation Increases accuracy of information Improves patient experience Accurate times across all documentation
  • 35. Standardization Driving Standardization across the complete record. Legible, consistent record Consistent language Automated and fast Improved clinical communication Less time documenting Easily mineable data » Becoming increasingly important beyond the walls of our hospitals
  • 36. Recap on the Power of a Unified Perioperative Record Facilitates Workflow Reduces Redundancies Supports Standardization
  • 37. Learning Topics What’s the Rush? » Why anesthesia automation now? What really works for anesthesia providers? How do you get all of the data you need in one place? Reporting and analytics to better manage patient care and your business. The power of a unified perioperative record.
  • 38. Summary Be an early advocate and champion of AIMS Make sure the system is easy-to-use and you partner with a vendor that is dedicated to advancing the system Ensure the AIMS meets all regulatory certifications Get all the data you need in the system Analytics is becoming more important so look for an open system that also supports data export to data repositories like AQI and NACOR.
