The site verification process starts when after proper counseling the surgeon books a case. The receptionist then creates an electronic file which sends a copy of the surgeon's instructions to a HIPPA compliant secure serverLearn More
As a CRNA with over ten years experience, I have not seen such a verification system that integrates all disciplines who will come in contact with the patient to verify the correct site for surgical procedures. Taking in all discipline's input pre-surgery check then concludes if surgery should proceed or if surgery should be halted because the correct site was not confirmed or collectively agreed upon. Pre-surgery check is an amazing tool that should be integrated into all operating rooms to eliminate the risk of wrong site surgeries.
As an Anesthesiologist, I am delighted to know that wrong side surgeries will be something we will not have to worry about ever again!
The software is extremely easy to use with almost no learning curve and very little additional time added to what we are already doing.
The in-room dashboard provides continuity of care when I provide relief for a colleague, helps me prevent anesthesia errors but also makes information readily available in case of emergencies. This is how the entire surgical team should be communicating in 2020!!
The software is meant to help your care team to prevent surgical errors relating to wrong site surgeries. It also ensures your participation in the site determination process before your arrival at the hospital and throughout the perioperative period.Learn More
Once surgery is scheduled, the patient receives an email with a password and a link. Anytime prior to their scheduled surgery, the patient logs into the HIPPA compliant secure server and completes the surgery verification process. This is stored in a repository in the server and on the day of surgery, is pulled up on the operating room dashboard.
