Critical Care Manager

Manages the complex workflow of the ICU

Picis Critical Care Manager is a comprehensive clinical documentation and decision support system that manages the complex workflow of the ICU. This critical care automation solution organizes high volume device data, lab results, calculations, orders, medications and clinical documentation for physicians, nurses and other members of the multidisciplinary team.

Without an effective critical care information system, an inordinate amount of time can be spent recording data, yet much of the important information needed to help clinicians make the right decisions may be unavailable or difficult to correlate. Critical Care Manager provides a seamless flow of information to everyone on the clinical team; an essential combination for supporting efficient workflow and immediate access to reliable patient information where it is needed most — at the bedside. By providing effective automation of documentation at the point-of-care, Critical Care Manager is helping hospitals around the world improve quality while reducing costs.

Critical Care Manager delivers:

  •  
Clinical documentation to help adhere to institutional workflow standards – Generates consistent, structured and legible clinical documentation, helping reduce the risk of errors resulting from repetitive documentation, transcription of clinical data from one place to another, illegible notes and denial of reimbursement by healthcare regulatory agencies
  •  
Content Library – Provides a comprehensive set of recommended documentation practices, taking the guesswork out of interpreting regulations that apply to surgical services
  •  
Quality reporting and compliance – Quality Reporting Portal automatically collects ICU data and creates reports of quality measures, merging Picis data into a hospital-wide quality reporting system
  •  
Clear visibility to fluids and medications – Automatically records and displays fluids and medications documentation, increasing the time that nurses spend with patients
  •  
Bi-directional Interoperability – Eliminates duplication of information as patient information is gathered from a myriad of medical devices and hospital information systems at the bedside, allowing clinicians to remain at the point of care
  •  
Powerful data correlation – Gives clinicians graphically displayed trends of data correlation at the point-of-care, reducing medical records
  •  
Nurse efficiencies – Nursing documentation employs standard protocols within Critical Care Manager to increase compliance with regulatory requirements, react quickly to regulatory changes and minimize exposure to liability
  •  
Expedited information transfer between staff – Generates reports in seconds containing important information collected over the previous 24-hour period, summarized for easy viewing, saving clinicians time and providing an overview of a patient's condition without sorting through large volumes of collected data
  •  
Ability to configure for unique needs of specialty ICUs – Supports the specific workflow requirements of different ICU environments
  •  
Continuity of care – Provides one contiguous record that spans the ICU, the OR and the post anesthesia care unit (PACU), making the flow of information seamless, and ensuring that a patient's progress is automatically tracked and documented from one high-acuity area to another
