Wakefield, MA, July 26, 2021 – Picis Clinical Solutions, Inc. (Picis) announces the launch of the first Minor Release of Picis 10 (MR1). The release focuses on enhancements to the scheduling area of Picis 10, including displaying utilization metrics for a selected OR and surgeon block time. This allows for the ability to quickly create or edit surgeon block times and utilize machine learning to predict case times. These metrics help to improve Operating Room utilization efficiency by minimizing any idle times or identifying overtime scenarios.

Additionally, Picis has included the ability to document implants and surgical supplies used on a case via barcode scanning. All modern 3D barcode formats are supported for documentation on case records with this release.

As we recover from the pandemic, maximizing the usage of the OR to handle the patient backlog in a safe manner becomes more important than ever.
