Most hospitals are going through some type of transition or conversion; e.g. a merger, acquisition, affiliation and/or a new enterprise wide system, new quality reporting program, new reimbursement model, new data warehouse, new analytics system... Additionally, most hospitals are short on technical staff to support multiple engagements, let alone support their existing and/or legacy systems.
During these transitional periods, Coratek has the perioperative skills and experience to seamlessly step in and "takeover" special projects and/or the daily analyst functions of your surgical systems. If you are one of the many organizations converting to Epic OpTime, Cerner's SurgiNet or MEDHOST, you have likely found that your most skilled, if not all, of your OR IT staff is transitioned over to training and activities surrounding the new system.
Surgical services isn't an area where organizations should place house-wide IT resources or "general" healthcare IT resources.... Periop systems require perioperative IT expertise especially during challenging times; between preparing for the new surgical information system and maintaining the legacy system.
