Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC, Fort Sam Houston, Texas) has gone live on Atlanta-based DocuSys’ anesthesia solution in 14 anesthetizing locations.

DocuSys is providing BAMC with its anesthesia information management system (AIMS), which produces an electronic record of the anesthetic case as well as decision support for the documentation of national quality measures, says the company. BAMC can also utilize the DocuSys reporting module to perform comprehensive analysis of its clinical database, it adds.

Brooke Army Medical Center is a 450-bed healthcare facility that provides Level 1 trauma and graduate medical education. BAMC serves as a health science center for inpatient and ambulatory care, consisting of Graduate Medical Education and training and the only American Burn Association verified Burn Center within the Department of Defense.
