Implementing Electronic Documentation with AORN SYNTEGRITY: Standardized Perioperative Framework (SPF)
October 8, 2009, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Louise Kenney, RN, BSN, MSM, Senior Consultant, Computer Science Corporation, Barbara Ripollone, Partner, Health Delivery Supply Chain & Perioperative Practice Director, Computer Sciences Corporation, and Janie Bowman-Hayes, Informatics Nurse Specialists, AORN. AORN SYNTEGRITY is a complement to EHRs designed to provide a consistent and reliable documentation data model across the continuum of perioperative patient care (i.e., preadmission, preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative). Encompassing the AORN Perioperative Nursing Data Set (PNDS), AORN SYNTEGRITY integrates fulfillment of the perioperative nursing care plan, nursing documentation and compliance tracking, and also includes non-clinical data fields necessary for monitoring and reporting relevant operational, quality and regulatory information. This is not a software application; it is an electronic reference dataset designed to be integrated into existing or new perioperative management and documentation systems with resulting data mapped to a centralized data repository. Using it will help implementing a new electronic documentation system in the perioperative area, can reduce the amount of time to implement, and decrease the need for RNs to build tables, databases and screens.
