Picis Launches Perioperative Dashboard to Help Manage Schedules

Picis launched the Picis Perioperative Dashboard, a business activity monitoring (BAM) solution for hospitals' surgical departments, during the 2008 Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN) Congress in Anaheim, CA.

The system features an intuitive graphical display that provides an easy-to-read snapshot of the current state of the surgical department. It measures case delays, cancellations, quality improvement compliance, patient throughput, documentation completeness, billing readiness and other key indicators. The Picis Perioperative Dashboard helps hospitals manage scheduling and delays, PACU throughput, quality metrics, and billing readiness. The company said with real-time actionable business and clinical intelligence, administrators and clinicians can anticipate consequences and make immediate, informed decisions to increase efficiency, ensure quality compliance and improve billing readiness.

Operating rooms (ORs) are a major source of hospital revenue and cost consumption, underscoring the need for efficient use of resources and clinical staff. However, healthcare organizations struggle to maintain high OR utilization rates due to the unpredictable nature of the perioperative environment and patient flow. Each day, ORs face logistical challenges, including late case starts, delays, add-on cases, cancellations and other unanticipated events that make it difficult to align clinician and patient schedules with available operating rooms and resources. This can negatively impact productivity, clinician and patient satisfaction, and hospital finances. In addition to a focus on increasing business and financial efficiency, hospitals are constantly implementing quality improvement initiatives to improve patient outcomes.

Picis Perioperative Dashboard arms administrators and clinicians with intelligent, actionable and timely information to anticipate and manage the day-to-day activities of the OR. An easy-to-read, Web page display with gauges, bar graphs and other visual indicators highlights issues that will impact daily OR activities.

The dashboard helps manage scheduling and delays, PACU throughput, quality metrics, and billing readiness.

The first release of Picis Perioperative Dashboard includes a library of 17 indicators that were developed with input from a panel of nursing directors, anesthesiologists, OR managers, surgeons and IT professionals. In addition, five fully customizable indicators allow hospitals to construct indicators that meet the specific needs of their department or role.
