July 11, 2007 — Draeger Medical recently announced the release of Innovian Anesthesia 2.0. The new release offers system improvements based on extensive customer feedback and includes expanded capability for IT performance in the perioperative suite.
It provides additional support for ease of access, enhanced security functions to promote compliance with HIPAA regulations, and additional notification capabilities that increase visibility to data coming from other systems.
Innovian Anesthesia 2.0 is the information backbone that integrates near real-time, life-critical information from patient monitoring, medical therapy devices, and other ancillary information systems. It gives clinicians fast access to patient data which can minimize multiple handoffs and duplication of effort that occurs with paper records. Hospitals that standardize on Draeger Medical solutions for IT, patient monitoring, and therapy devices, have a reportedly consistent, harmonized graphical user interface (GUI) across their devices. This simplifies user training and provides a common look and feel.
Implementing Innovian Anesthesia across the entire perioperative process impacts charting efficiency by reducing paper records. According to manufacturer, this allows clinicians to spend more time delivering care while enhancing documentation compliance and expediting reimbursement.
Because Innovian Anesthesia can offer seamless connectivity to medical devices and other XML or HL7 capable hospital software systems, clinicians are able to access vital signs, patient demographics, and lab results quickly and easily. The information is then automatically integrated into the Innovian Anesthesia patient’s electronic record in a secure manner, supporting the clinician in their patient care process.
