Digital surgical charts improve
Creating a digital patient folder with eSurgical Chart is easy. This system captures and stores ALL required paper documents from various sources in the Document Queue. Here you can also assign the EHR barcode value and document expiration dates. This information is indexed to the
patient’s digital folder.
In Chart Builder, all documents are accessible including patient history, pre-admit, and other surgical events. eSurgical Chart is built from logic captured in the surgery schedule and business rules of the surgical services: regulatory requirements, physician required documents, procedure specifics, medical necessity, and pre-admit consults.
Dashboard workflow tools help pre-op staff manage chart assembly, readiness, and regulatory compliance. Features include prioritization, quality assurance on charts, electronic “sticky” note messaging between nursing and support staff. Status fields notify the user of chart readiness.
Electronic data: pre-admit to pre-op to surgery to discharge
eSurgical Chart is accessible through a provider interface. Pre-admit test dates are identified for each patient, along with indexed documents and status. eSurgical Chart displays the patient list for Date of Pre-Admit appointments along with clinical department and indexed documents.
Once patients move to Pre-Op, each file and chart can be easily updated. A Chart Completion Summary compiles real-time status on what’s needed for each day’s scheduled surgeries. Post surgery, barcodes on the patient charts can be used for discharge scanning to your EHR system. eSurgical Chart can be accessed directly on a Multi-Functional Device and charts printed directly from the patient file.
