IT in Healthcare: The Perioperative Pendulum

October 22, 2018

It’s the cyclical question for every industry: Best-of-breed or enterprise technology?  For healthcare, the pendulum has been swinging in favor of one vendor/one system.

At both the 2018 OR Manager Conference and Anesthesiology Conference, everyone my team spoke with who had experienced mandated adoption of an enterprise solution unanimously expressed unhappiness. Why then, do hospitals continue down this path? Beyond the extreme cost and time to implement, and despite the promises of supposed easier vendor management and tighter application integration, the one-size-fits-all approach simply does not address the demanding needs of the most vital department – the OR.

As hospitals scrutinize ways in which to improve patient safety, lower perioperative costs, and increase patient volume, they are once again realizing the value a dedicated TPA vendor can provide with a comprehensive patient tracking system integrated to their EHR software from one continuous patient record.

The pendulum is slowing.
