Upgrades/Conversions

AIMS upgrades, conversions and implementations require a substantial amount of time, organization, and resources. They run much more smoothly when they include skilled and experienced anesthesia system experts.

Planning for a system upgrade or conversion requires the identification, coordination, and development of a multidisciplinary team prior to the project kick off. Additionally, one of the greatest challenges facing implementations (particularly anesthesia implementations), is the allocation of the appropriate dedicated resources to provide expertise in project management, systems administration, operating management and database management. These upgrades/conversions also require coordinated involvement of key stakeholders (anesthesiologists, practice managers, quality analysts, billing and coding, and other vendors).

Coratek helps clients in varying capacities throughout the conversion or upgrade process from significant involvement through project management to ad-hoc services such as database cleanup. Most importantly, Coratekʼs experience with a variety of AIMS provides our clients with invaluable expertise.
