JACKSON, Mich., July 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Plexus Technology Group, LLC (Plexus TG), a market-leading provider of Anesthesia Information Management Systems (AIMS), announced today that NorthStar Anesthesia, a prominent national anesthesia management company, has selected Plexus TG to install their Anesthesia Touch™ software. Recognized as one of the fastest growing anesthesia companies in the nation on the "Healthcare's Hottest" list published by Modern Healthcare magazine, NorthStar Anesthesia emphasizes quality, efficiency, and accountability throughout their facilities. Together, this partnership will improve operational efficiencies and ensure accurate and complete clinical documentation.
NorthStar Anesthesia's increasing requirements for quality capture and performance reporting necessitated a full-featured, cloud-hosted AIMS to replace its hybrid documentation system. With contracted services ranging from large hospitals to small ambulatory surgical centers, a key factor in NorthStar Anesthesia's decision was the solution's workflow flexibility and enterprise interoperability across facility-specific HIS platforms.
"We needed not only clinical documentation, but also a solution providing visibility into productivity and business metrics. Plexus was selected through a deliberate process that clearly showed the benefits of their mobile platform and performance dashboards," explained Ben Dunford, Chief Operating Officer at NorthStar Anesthesia. "We're looking forward to utilizing Anesthesia Touch's scalability and analytics combined with ease of use."
"We are pleased to team up with NorthStar Anesthesia. We commend their efforts to implement innovative technology to improve quality and efficiency throughout their enterprise, allowing their anesthesia providers to focus on the patient instead of paperwork," said Albert Woo, M.D., President at Plexus Technology Group. "This is an exciting partnership and one that aligns our companies for joint growth and future success."
