Dräger Medical Inc, Telford, Pa, introduces a Web-based information management solution that integrates vital patient information from medical devices and systems across the acute point of care (APOC).  

Innovian Solution Suite streamlines access to patient information by providing one platform for the critical and perioperative care environments. The system was unveiled at the 2007 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) in New Orleans, February 25 – March 1, 2007.

The new web-based components of the suite include solutions for the perioperative and critical care environments. In the perioperative environment, Dräger Medical’s OR/Anesthesia information management system covers scheduling, pre-op, holding, intra-op, and PACU. For critical care there is an ICU documentation system that provides full electronic patient charting, flowsheet, scoring, and printed reports. Working together, these solutions continually capture vital patient information from perioperative and critical care medical devices and clinical information systems. That data is integrated into one, easy-to-navigate interface for direct access by clinicians. A more accurate patient record is possible when patient data is automatically placed into the record. With electronic charting clinicians can spend less time writing and have more time for patient care.

“This new solution enables clinicians to see the patient’s entire episode of care from perioperative to critical care and vice versa,” said Libby Busci, director, IT Solutions and Enterprise Solution Center for Dräger Medical. “And because the platform is Web-based, clinicians can access this patient information anywhere over the hospital intranet—regardless of location.”
