The Picis solution allows Frimley staff to capture all relevant clinical and administrative data automatically as patients enter and pass through the preoperative, intraoperative, postoperative and critical care environments of the hospital. It is designed to help Frimley optimize the use of nursing staff, supplies and operating room schedules as well as the clinical care process; and its analytics tools will allow performance over time to be measured and understood, thus contributing to Frimley's advances in best practice.
"We're delighted with what this solution does. Picis software performs precisely as they claim it does," said Andrew Morris, Chief Executive of Frimley Park Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. "Our clinical team is genuinely excited by how it helps us improve efficiency and patient safety, as it brings order to the entire care pathway. Picis has delivered on what it promised, within the timescales agreed, and is an extremely professional organization. Over the next few months we expect to see the system delivering its full potential, adding value within the organization and improving the service we provide to patients."
"Picis is one of the best companies I have worked with," said Jonathan Spinks, Head of IT at Frimley Park Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. "We've had great faith in Picis from the moment we made the decision to install their software. Integration with other systems, such as our pathology systems and the iSOFT Patient Centre, has been successful too. We're very pleased."
The Picis integrated software solution for surgical, anesthesia, post-anesthesia and critical care areas helps clinical staff to automate documentation of care through the entire patient pathway, helping to reduce the potential for errors. Loua Shaikh, M.D., Consultant Anesthetist/Intensivist at Frimley Park Hospital NHS Foundation Trust said, "Picis software can help us to manage resources more effectively than ever before in the most critical areas of the hospital. It makes it far easier for clinical teams to access information and manage data, and is a superb example of how the appropriate use of information technology can help physicians improve clinical practice."
"NHS IT is under the microscope like never before. Every investment needs to demonstrate a strong return," said Liz Popovich, Co-founder and Executive Vice President of International Operations at Picis. "The implementation has gone extremely well, and over the coming months management, staff and patients at Frimley Park can expect to see the kind of benefits that only a specialized information management system can help bring to high-acuity care areas of the hospital."
Frimley Park purchased the following modules: Picis Theatre Manager, SmarTrack®, PACU Manager, Anesthesia Manager, Critical Care Manager, Extelligence® OR, Extelligence Anesthesia and Picis Perioperative Dashboard. Picis software has been delivering operational efficiencies and improved communication and helping to enhance clinician and patient experiences at hospitals worldwide since 1994.
