RES-Q to Demo Surgical Patient Status Monitoring

RES-Q Perioperative Resource Management assesses and confirms surgeons� procedure-specific preferences, staff and equipment requirements, supply lists and inventory and operating room availability, and then sets surgery schedules that aim to diminish resource conflicts and boost productivity.

The Patient Waiting Room View shows an abbreviated patient identifier (first two letters of the last name and first name initial), the surgeon�s name, the procedure, surgery start and completion times and current status (patient in OR, surgery in process, patient in recovery). The Physician Lounge View displays additional detail, such as the scheduled operating room number and the name of the anesthesiologist. Surgeons can see if their patients have entered the hospital, completed check-in and are prepped for surgery. In addition, a special notification option associated to the Physician Lounge View can send the case status information to surgeons via voice or text messages.
