Picis systems are used in more than 1,600 hospitals in 19 countries. With healthcare systems around the world investing in technology with proven return on investment, Picis Total Perioperative Automation suite offers hospitals the chance to achieve real efficiencies in the most critical areas of the organization.
Picis Total Perioperative Automation suite, part of the CareSuite® family of high-acuity solutions, provides a unified system that includes the clinical, administrative and business components needed to operate the perioperative suite efficiently, and addresses some of the fundamental issues facing healthcare providers in Europe, namely:
"Choosing Picis Total Perioperative Automation suite was a strategic decision, which supported our desire to be at the forefront of healthcare technology in France," said Jean-Michel Gayraud, chief operating officer at IMM. "The Picis solution helps physicians and nurses to work on an accurate integrated record, increase staff efficiency, reduce costs, improve communication and help to improve the quality of patient care."
Picis Total Perioperative Automation functionality includes operational/management reporting and analysis, surgical scheduling, patient tracking, resource utilization, inventory management, and clinical documentation for anesthesia and recovery room providers, surgeons, operating room nurses, and administrative staff.
The flexible and highly interoperable nature of the Picis system allows hospitals to select the functionality most closely aligned to their most pressing and immediate needs. It means that the necessary data collected and documented is available wherever and whenever it is needed allowing staff and management to improve the performance of the perioperative suite and take greater control of the entire surgical workflow. It also integrates tightly with other hospital care areas such as critical care.
"Total Perioperative Automation is the optimum solution to efficiently support hospitals through their computerization projects. It supports clinicians, department heads and executives who expect the best technology in their high-acuity areas without compromising their hospital-wide IT strategies," commented Philippe Mabille, Picis general director for France. "This latest version of Total Perioperative Automation means hospitals can leverage Picis connectivity with other existing hospital technology to improve efficiency and provide a complete record across the continuum of care."
