With the ability to manage their patient information from any location using their iPad, the clinicians can spend more time focusing on patient care.  Anesthesia Touch is intuitive, fast, and easy to use. In addition, consent forms are signed directly on their iPad and saved immediately to the patient's record. 

"We looked at other anesthesia EMR's and decided on Anesthesia Touch.  We are very pleased with the overall product.  It is easy to operate, produces an anesthesia record that anesthesia providers are used to seeing, and we receive great customer service," said Mark Zapp, M.D., Medical Director of Anesthesia, Fleming Island Anesthesia LLC. "Although we are early in the process, it does qualify for meaningful use and integrates with our other web based products. We highly recommend this product." 

"We support their dedication to providing quality patient care and to equipping their anesthesia staff with innovative technology so their focus remains on the patient instead of on paperwork," replied Rob Henry, Vice President of Client Services at Plexus Information Systems.
