December 4, 2007 - The University of Colorado Hospital has gone live this week with GE Healthcare's Centricity Perioperative System to streamline surgical services, integrating anesthesia, nursing, scheduling, surgery management and preprocedures services into one complete patient record.
"The need for a complete and continuous record of any Perioperative event, from pre-procedures to post-PACU, drove our decision to select GE and Centricity Periop," said Katherine Halverson Carpenter, RN, MBA, CNOR, director of perioperative services. "The development of an integrated electronic medical record for nursing and anesthesia was highly valued by all the disciplines."
With integrated nursing and anesthesia documentation, clinicians can capture and communicate vital patient data throughout the perioperative environment. GE says the solution creates an integrated workflow to streamline data input that shares essential patient information and simplifies documentation throughout the perioperative continuum of care.
