General-purpose solutions are not effective in high-acuity care. With its fast pace, complex and rapidly changing care regimens, unique workflows and mountains of diverse clinical data, high acuity requires specialization. Going forward, demonstration of meaningful use of healthcare information technology (HIT), as part of the American Reinvestment and Recovery ACT (ARRA) of 2009, effectively drives a portion of your hospital’s reimbursement from CMS. You need a specialist who not only understands the unique workflows and processes in the ED, OR, PACU and ICU but who can also help provide the rich clinical data that will define quality and shape reimbursement.
Picis provides comprehensive solutions that automate clinical documentation and business practices in the ED, OR and ICU. Unlike hospital enterprise vendors, we focus exclusively on optimizing every aspect of high-acuity care. As a clinician, you know that high acuity is the most demanding environment in the hospital. That’s why it makes sense to demand a solution with the functionality, depth and flexibility you need to succeed.
