University of Washington Medicine Goes Live With DocuSys Solutions

The University of Washington's UW Medicine health care system has gone live on DocuSys' anesthesia solutions in 26 anesthetizing locations in University of Washington Medical Center, including the medical center's Surgery Pavilion and UW Medical Center's Roosevelt Clinic.

Also deployed across the UW Medicine enterprise are a coding module for documenting comorbid conditions and capturing professional fees and a case viewing module which will provide medical staff the ability to remotely view a case that is currently in progress or has been closed, said DocuSys.

The combination of these technologies support UW Medicine's patient safety initiatives and facilitate the capture of detailed information, such as preexisting conditions, which can have positive impacts on reimbursement, added DocuSys.

Robert Watson, president and CEO of DocuSys, said: "UW Medicine is an important regional healthcare provider and has a long history of providing outstanding patient care. We are proud to partner with UW Medicine to provide their patients with new technology that reinforces safety efforts throughout the entire surgical care experience."
