Implementation of an AIMS
As the chapter titles of this book imply, use of an AIMS within an anesthesia service affects far more than the intraoperative anesthesia record, although that is the use most visible to clinicians. When implemented well, an AIMS has the potential to positively affect almost every process—clinical and business—related to anesthesia delivery. The opposite is also true. When poorly implemented, an AIMS can degrade these same processes, leading to system failures, with lost clinical efficiency, poor-quality records, and the associated lost investment of time, money, and opportunity.
