Picis (Wakefield, Mass.) announced it has been awarded a Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) contract to implement an anesthesia record keeping (ARK) system in the Stars & Stripes Healthcare Network, a Veterans Integrated Service Network (VISN) serving Pennsylvania, Delaware and West Virginia.
Known as VISN 4, this group of VA medical centers selected Picis Preop Manager, Anesthesia Manager and PACU Manager to streamline clinician workflow, anesthesia documentation and continuity of care before, during and after surgical cases. Picis Critical Care Manager is already being deployed in VISN 4’s intensive care units (ICU).
By selecting Picis for anesthesia and the ICU, VISN 4 healthcare providers will have easy access to complete patient care records — spanning surgical care and the ICU — in one application and on one common, central database.
