Upgrades/Conversions

Perioperative information system upgrades, conversions and implementations require a substantial amount of time, organization, and resources. They also go much smoother when they include skilled and experienced surgical 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 in the operating room), is the allocation of the appropriate dedicated resources to provide expertise in project management, systems administration, operating management, database management, clinical and materials management. Implementations also require coordinated involvement of key stakeholders (administration, surgeons, anesthesiologists, risk management, finance, 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 preference card cleanup. Most importantly, Coratekʼs experience with a variety of perioperative information system implementations provides our clients with invaluable expertise.
