Surgical Areas

Review Supply and Implant Costs
Surgeons and OR Charge Posters will be able to see how expensive an individual case is by viewing the Surgery Receipt report. This report will show the cost of the supplies and implants used in a procedure. It will also compare the procedure's cost to the primary surgeon's average cost for the procedure and to the peer average cost for the procedure.

Surgeons will be able to access this report from their Post-op to Floor and Post-op Discharge navigators. OR Charge posters will be able to access from their Post Charges navigator.





Improved Block Utilization Report 
For OR Managers, the Block Utilization report will have an updated look and feel.

Anesthesia

Guardian Workspace Update: View Upcoming Patients or Another Provider’s Patients in Guardian
Anesthesia providers will be able to choose to view current or upcoming patients and view patients for a different clinician when covering for others in the Guardian workspace. Once available, this can be opened in the workspace tab.


Guardian Workspace Update: Filter Guardian to View Intra-Op Patients Only
In addition to viewing patients by OR Room and Phase of Care, Anesthesia providers will be able to filter Guardian to only show their own intra-op patients.



Blood Administration Update: Start Time Automatically Uses Current Time
When Anesthesia providers scan a new bag of blood, the start time will automatically set to the time the bag is scanned. For new bags of blood, providers will be able to manually document a New Bag start time or select the current time by clicking Real Time. Scanning the bag will also allow providers to document a rate change or scan a new bolus in multi-bolus mode.



Blood Administration Update: Pause and Restart Rate-Based Blood Administrations
When Anesthesia providers perform a rate-based blood administration from the Intraprocedure activity, they will be able to pause the administration by changing the rate to 0 mL/hr (A). Once available, Click the Add new restart button to restart the administration (B), or add a stop time to stop it.




Copies of SmartSets and Preference Lists No Longer Pull in Referred By Provider
When you copy another provider's SmartSet or preference list, the orders in your new copy will no longer have any default referred by providers.

  • This change will make sure you don't accidentally document someone else as the referred by provider when placing an order from a copy of their SmartSet or preference list.
  • If you already have a copy of someone else's SmartSet or preference list, be careful that the correct referred by provider is documented when you place referral orders using your copy.


Updated Follow-Up Section
Speed through your follow-up documentation with a streamlined section that will be easy to personalize. New buttons will help you quickly find the right recipient if you need to route the chart.
