Nurse Anesthetists’ Perceptions of the Electronic Anesthesia Information Management System
November 02, 2015
Billions of dollars have been offered through the United States of America governmental legislation for healthcare providers to use Electronic Medical Records (EMR) to document patient care. Despite the incentives and upcoming penalties, anesthesia providers have been slow to adopt an EMR system called Anesthesia Information Management Systems (AIMS). The purpose of this study was to examine perceptions of nurse anesthesia provider documentation on AIMS. CRNAs are in an ideal position to help AIMS vendors facilitate the creation of a system that can address the documentation requirements of patient care while making a user interface customizable and individualized toward the end user (the CRNA).
