About this book

Anesthesia Information Management Systems (AIMS) have been in existence for several decades, but their use in clinical practice has been very limited until recently. When initially developed, AIMS were primarily focused on replacing paper records with an electronic form. In parallel, the healthcare industry has recognized that electronic medical records are a key element of improving patient safety and reducing error, with many insurers actively encouraging implementation of electronic medical records. Therefore, interest in adopting AIMS technology is growing within the anesthesia community and this book represents a comprehensive handbook in setting up such a system.

Anesthesia Informatics uses a case-based approach to review the subject in a practical manner and is written with the practicing physician in mind. Therefore, it will help anesthesiologists, anesthesia departments, and hospitals in purchasing the ideal technology for their unique situations and help them to utilize it for the ultimate goal of improving patient safety and health-system efficiency.

The goal of the Editors was to make Anesthesia Informatics readable by a clinician with a problem to solve. Each of the international panel of contributors is an expert on their topic within the book, ensuring highly detailed, academically rigorous chapters. Each contributor is active in using the clinical systems discussed in this book, giving them real-world experience as well as expertise in the theoretical aspects of medical informatics.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This comprehensive review of the technological advances in medical informatics emphasizes the integration of these advances into the clinical practice of anesthesiology. … Practicing anesthesiologists who have questions about medical informatics and will be incorporating it into their clinical practice are the intended audience. While residents and medical students also may benefit from it … . this book is a worthy contribution to the field." (Mohammed Minhaj, Doody’s Review Services, January, 2009)

Aus den Rezensionen: “Ein Buch ... das sich ausschließlich mit Informationssystemen in der Anästhesie beschäftigt, ist ein Beleg dafür, dass die moderne Health IT mittlerweile doch einen gewissen Reifegrad erreicht hat. In dem Reader ‘Anesthesia lnformatics‘ geben ... Autoren einen Komplettüberblick zu Informationssystemen in der Anästhesie (AIMS), Managementsystemen für den OP-Saal (ORMS) und mobilen IT-Lösungen für Anästhesisten. Installation, Schnittstellen und das digitale Medikationsmanagement sind dabei selbstverständlich Themen ... Besonders anschaulich sind vier Case Reports, die das Buch auflockern ...“ (Grätzel, in: E-Health-Com, February/2010, Issue 1, S. 70)
