LiveData, Cambridge, Mass, announced an iPad app for its perioperative workflow system, PeriOp Manager. The app coordinates patient flow, patient care, and related resources from preoperative assessment to discharge.

LiveData’s PeriOp Manager combines real-time data integration with workflow automation. OR-Dashboard enables nurses, surgeons, anesthesiologists, and operating room (OR) technicians to work more effectively and achieve full compliance with patient safety protocols. It helps the team meet and document Joint Commission and CMS mandates with reminders, electronic checklists, and other real-time operational tools for facilitating best practices including patient safety alerts, surgical safety checklists, and antibiotic re-dosing timers.

The iPad app offers access and visibility into the exact workflow for each patient to a wider audience of interested parties using hospital-secured networks. Along with the interactive displays in the OR suite and now on iPads, PeriOp Manager securely uses cell phones, pagers, and other mobile devices to coordinate patient care, safety initiatives, and resource utilization. All PeriOp Manager modules—PreOp Board, OR-Schedule Board, OR-Dashboard with Active Time Out, Family Waiting Board, and OR-Checkpoint—are based on LiveData RTI-Healthcare Edition. RTI is a flexible real-time system that allows hospitals to implement modules as one comprehensive system or on an incremental basis, with the option to seamlessly add modules as the need arises.
