Several Anesthesia Info Systems Gain Traction Delivering Integration without Sacrificing Quality

KLAS examines growing Anesthesia Information Management Systems market

The classic tug-of-war between CIOs' need for system integration and clinicians' need for clinical quality has been answered by several anesthesia information management vendors. These findings, as well as which vendors offer the best clinical functionality and usability, are contained in the latest KLAS report.

"As this market continues to grow and new players enter the market, some vendors are learning to crack the code and deliver the system integration that CIOs are seeking with the clinical impact that clinicians are after," said report author Adam Cherrington. "It's more than just usability and functionality; it's truly impacting patient outcomes while achieving meaningful integration with other clinical systems." 

For this report, KLAS interviewed 179 provider organizations to learn about their experiences with their anesthesia information management solution. The report reveals who offers the best clinical functionality and usability, which vendors offer strong analytics tools, and whether providers are able to leverage these tools to improve outcomes and efficiency and reduce costs. Some of the vendors reviewed in the report include Cerner, Dräger Medical, Epic, GE Healthcare, McKesson, Optum, Philips, Plexus Information Systems, SIS and SIS (Amkai).
