A solid data foundation is the key to an effective perioperative information system. As with most other aspects of the OR, the operating room database (item file, preference cards, procedure dictionary) can be pretty complex.
Coratek understands the importance of data file integration and has the technical and perioperative content expertise to help design, build, map, clean up and maintain such files and the ability to do so in a timely and efficient manner.
Because of competing priorities, and lack of skill sets, ORs struggle to maintain their databases on an ongoing basis (and many IT departments don't have the content expertise to identify issues– particularly regarding preference cards). In addition to providing ad-hoc clean up, standardization, and/or merge services, Coratek also provides database maintenance services to ensure ongoing success.
Coratek also provides archiving solutions for legacy system data management following perioperative system conversion. Archiving solutions allow for quick and easy access to historical data such as implant data and provider statistics, while eliminating costly support and maintenance of the legacy system.
