Miami VA Healthcare System Adds LiveData PeriOp Planner

LiveData Inc. announced that the Miami Department of Veterans Affairs health care facility has added LiveData PeriOp Planner to the medical center’s LiveData PeriOp Manager workflow solution.

PeriOp Planner is a web-based solution that front-ends and synchronizes surgical scheduling enhancing the patient’s journey from surgical consultation through preoperative steps to the scheduled day-of-surgery. LiveData partner Document Storage Systems Inc. (DSS) integrated PeriOp Planner with existing solutions and installed it in clinic offices and OR suites.

PeriOp Manager integrates patient information and perioperative case workflow to allow visual management both by the patient’s clinical team, as well as by other caregivers throughout the VA Healthcare System. With PeriOp Planner, clinic staff can track and remind patients to complete labs or consults prior to surgery, or determine if anticipated surgical dates need to be changed.

Hospitals and operating room schedulers can easily view and search patients’ preoperative work plans to improve case forecasting, fill surgical blocks, and identify potential cancellations.

“We implemented LiveData PeriOp Manager to streamline clinical workflows and improve access to surgical care for our veterans in the Miami area,” said Dr. Seth A. Spector, chief of surgery, Miami VA Healthcare System. “With the addition of PeriOp Planner, patients arrive at medical centers prepared for surgery, and last-minute delays and cancellations are avoided.”
