LiveData today announced that St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor is expanding its deployment of LiveData PeriOp Manager patient safety and operational intelligence solution to ten new operating rooms. LiveData OR-Dashboard™ with Active Time Out® (ATO), and OR-Schedule Board™ will provide the foundation for workflow efficiency and patient safety in nine Outpatient Surgery Center operating rooms and a new Hybrid OR at the 537-bed teaching hospital. The award-winning hospital will also deploy LiveData PeriOp Manager Analytics™ to provide comprehensive performance reporting across all perioperative areas.
St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor, part of Saint Joseph Mercy Health System (SJMHS), is located on a 341-acre campus in Ann Arbor, Michigan. St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor has been named a Top 100 Hospital and, along with four other SJMHS hospitals, recently earned “A” scores from The Leapfrog Group for their ability to protect patients from accidents, errors, injuries, and infections.
The new Outpatient Surgery Center and hybrid operating rooms enable SJMHS medical teams to perform surgeries with advanced imaging and other technologies such as minimally invasive techniques so that patients can go home happier and healthier. With the new LiveData PeriOp Manager installations, all 28 St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor ORs will be equipped with LiveData technology.
“When a leading hospital like St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor expands its use of our technology, it is a gratifying affirmation that we are helping them meet their strategic organizational objectives,” said Jeff Robbins, CEO of LiveData. “St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor has built its reputation on operational excellence, and has an enviable patient safety record.”
LiveData PeriOp Manager synchronizes perioperative workflow throughout the entire perioperative suite to create an optimal care environment for staff and patients alike. Coordinating patient flow, patient care, and related resources from preoperative assessment to discharge in real-time, PeriOp Manager streamlines OR throughput and promotes full compliance with CMS, The Joint Commission, and other critical patient safety mandates.
PeriOp Manager's wall, workstation, and bedside computer displays, mobile notifications, and performance metrics fully-equip perioperative departments to achieve patient safety and operational efficiency objectives. Caregivers can effectively manage and assume accountability for their activities, and administrators are able to quickly gain insight into where and when workflow bottlenecks are likely to occur. The product suite, which can be deployed as individual modules or in combinations, includes:
- PreOp Board: a single, dynamic, operational view of patient status and preoperative case workflow.
- OR-Dashboard: an integrated display of patient data from hospital medical records and physiological devices with automated surgical workflow and patient safety information including Active Time Out, a real-time, interactive surgical safety checklist.
- OR-Schedule Board: a real-time view of the day’s surgical cases, enabling staff to improve patient throughput.
- PACU Board: a single, dynamic operational view of patient status and post-anesthesia case workflow.
- Family Waiting Board: a display enabling families to track the progress of their loved ones as they move through the surgical process.
- LiveData PeriOp Manager Analytics: comprehensive data analysis and reporting, using big data techniques to transform real-time operational data into actionable quality, compliance, and efficiency intelligence.
LiveData, Inc. is a leading innovator in real-time operational intelligence solutions. The company’s healthcare solutions gather real-time data from across the perioperative suite, coordinate it with team workflow, and present it as meaningful information on easy-to-read, graphic displays. Leading medical institutions, including Massachusetts General Hospital, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York-Presbyterian Hospital, and Veterans Health Administration facilities have selected LiveData solutions to improve patient safety, team communication, and perioperative efficiency. LiveData is headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts. For more information, visit www.livedata.com

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations migh...

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...

Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and Containers together help companies to achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of...

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. Th...

The last decade was about virtual machines, but the next one is about containers. Containers enable a service to run on any host at any time. Traditional tools are starting to show cracks because they were not designed for this level of application portability. Now is the time to look at new ways to deploy and manage applications at scale. In his session at @DevOpsSummit, Brian “Redbeard” Harrington, a principal architect at CoreOS, will examine how CoreOS helps teams run in production. Attende...
