LiveData Launches iPad App for PeriOP Manager
Tablet app puts real-time access to critical quality and efficiency information into the hands of caregivers throughout the hospital
LiveData, a leading innovator in real-time data integration and display technology, today announced an iPad app for its perioperative workflow system, PeriOp Manager . Coordinating patient flow, patient care and related resources from preoperative assessment to discharge in real-time, PeriOp Manager automates manual processes and synchronizes workflow throughout the entire perioperative suite to create an optimal care environment for staff and patients alike.
With the addition of the iPad app, access to PeriOp Manager’s real-time workflow performance information is extended to clinicians and healthcare managers overseeing the operating room, no matter where they are located. They can proactively make decisions using the data to coordinate staff and resources that impact running the OR effectively and safely. PeriOp Manager streamlines OR throughput and promotes full compliance with CMS, Joint Commission and other critical patient safety mandates.
“Clinicians are adopting mobile platforms like Apple iPads as their device of choice to access information wherever and whenever they need it,” said Jeffrey Robbins, president and CEO of LiveData. “Our clients asked us to extend access to LiveData information and we responded with our iPad app. Now clinicians and healthcare executives, both within and outside the perioperative suite, can take advantage of the information, viewing potential performance barriers in real time from pre-op milestones to discharge.”
LiveData’s PeriOp Manager combines real-time data integration with workflow automation. OR-Dashboard  enables nurses, surgeons, anesthesiologists and OR technicians to work more effectively as a team and achieve full compliance with patient safety protocols. It actively 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, Active Time Out  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.
PeriOp Manager integrates and aligns information from the EHR and other existing hospital information systems with perioperative workflow in real time. 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.
LiveData is a leading innovator in real-time data integration and display technology. The company’s patents-pending solutions gather data from any number of sources, coordinate it with team workflow, and present it as meaningful information on easy-to-read, graphic displays. Leading medical institutions, including Massachusetts General Hospital, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, have selected LiveData OR-Dashboard to improve patient safety, team communication, and perioperative efficiency.
