To evaluate surgical information systems from a clinical vantage point

Expected results:

Drastically improved effective resource use in the surgical environment

-Decreased costs

-Increased satisfaction of providers& patients

-Improved quality of care

  • Description of problem
    • Highlight the problems of not having unified information systems in surgical units
  • Analysis of Requirements
    • Determine what a complete information system should address
  • Evaluate Surgical Information Systems


  • Gaps in SIS and solutions
  • Conclusion/Lead in to project 2
description of problem
Description of Problem
  • OR is the highest cost center and revenue generator.
  • Pressure to cut costs leads to information systems solutions.
  • Could save 30-40% by

using an IS that captures

all data – both clinical

and administrative.

problems with previous is solutions
Problems withPrevious IS Solutions
  • No standardization of data elements.
  • Data elements had different meanings to different services.
  • Database development and maintenance was dependent on user’s knowledge.
  • When the developer/maintainer left, the hospital was left with difficult task.
  • Need complete software packages to address all data produced and needed in OR.
why use an sis
Why Use an SIS?
  • Manage schedule of surgical cases to maximize resource utilization
  • Capture all clinical data at point of care
  • Eliminate redundancies in data entry
  • Generate real time clinical reports (as needed or automatically scheduled)
  • Staff spends less time on non-clinical paperwork and more time on patient care
analysis of requirements
Analysis of Requirements
  • A source of standardized and comprehensive content and format the transmission of procedure-related risk and complications;
  • Captures and archives clinician behavior relating to use, modification and disclosure of standardized knowledge sources;
  • Provides just-in-time access to procedural descriptions information relating to risks and complications.
  • Captures, archives and makes available to the clinician patient use of procedure-related knowledge resources.

Analysis of RequirementsMandatory Functions
evaluation of vendor
Evaluation of Vendor
  • Surgical Information Systems (SIS).


  • Why SIS is our vendor of choice:
  • System captures all clinical, financial, administrative, and archival data needed to manage surgical services and comply with JCAHO quality monitoring requirements.
function of sis
Function of SIS
  • Manage your schedule of surgical cases.
    • maximize resource utilization.
  • Captures all clinical data at the point of care.
  • Integrates into existing HIS.
    • saves time in working with existing systems and saves money for future IS scalability.
  • Eliminate redundancies in data entry;
    • information need only be entered once, and will then appear throughout the system wherever appropriate.
  • Generates real time clinical reports (as needed or automatically scheduled).
vendor s tools
Vendor’s Tools
  • Used by SIS to deliver these solutions and streamline the operating suite.
  • Patient scheduling data management.
  • Nurse anesthesia interoperate management.
  • Anesthesia interoperate management.
  • Reporting modules.
patient scheduling data management
Patient Scheduling Data Management
  • The system is integrated with pre-admission, pre-operative, intra-and post-operative modules.
  • Block scheduling accommodates specialty block definition, practice block definition, and surgeon block definition.Utilize integrated preference cards and pick lists.
  • Access room, materials, personnel and equipment availability.

Facilitate real time conflict checking.

  • Graphical User Interface (GUI) format.
preoperative nursing data management
Preoperative Nursing Data Management
  • Records info on patient history, medication names, handicaps, patient valuables, and a recall feature for patients who have had previous procedures.
  • Preoperative data is stored for anesthesia and intraoperative providers to review.
intraoperative anesthesia data management
Intraoperative Anesthesia Data Management
  • The patient interview is verified and released to other providers throughout the hospital.
  • Simultaneously monitor up to 125 vital signs from as many as 25 patient monitoring platforms.
  • Non-physiological data including the administration of drugs, anesthetic events, patient demographics, event timing, and involved staff is recorded quickly and easily using a GUI.
  • Voice response, touch screens, light pens, or bar coding are available for SIS users.
gaps in sis solutions
Gaps in SIS & Solutions
  • EDI v. XML
  •  Price
  • Age of Vendor
  • Solutions to problems
looking ahead to a clinical dss
Looking Ahead to a Clinical DSS
  • We conclude that surgical information systems can help save costly time and money, as well as increasing the quality of care.
  • Inclusion of surgical DSS will intensify the savings and satisfaction in the surgical environment.
  • Computer-based decision-aids are hardly used.
  • Successful implementation of decision-aids in the clinical environment must integrate the future users.
