Plexus Technology Group, LLC (Plexus TG), a fully KLAS-rated, market-leading, best-of-breed provider of anesthesia information management systems (AIMS), and affiliate company to Anesthesia Business Consultants, is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Synopsis Healthcare, a leading supplier of digital pre-operative assessment for National Health Service (NHS) and private hospitals in the UK.  By merging their technologies and software expertise, together they will deliver a state-of-the-art anesthesia perioperative solution unlike anything available on the market today.  Both companies will market, sell and implement Plexus TG’s innovative electronic anesthesia documentation and medication management solutions, Anesthesia Touch™ and Pharmacy Touch™, as a fully integrated solution with Synopsis Healthcare’s pre-operative assessment software system, Synopsis iQ, to improve workflow efficiencies and enhance the overall perioperative experience.

Programs such as Enhanced Recover After Surgery (ERAS) and other foundational programs in the area of perioperative medicine have been established for some time in the European theater.  The power of Anesthesia Touch and the Synopsis iQ platform brings to market a collaborative platform incorporating the best practices of the United States and the European Union.  The power of this platform versus other options on the market is that it utilizes deep clinical and administrative data analysis to recommend therapies and risk profiles with patients based on regional, therapeutic and established clinical pathways to drive patient outcomes.

“We are delighted to partner with Plexus TG.  Both businesses have collaborated closely with each other over the past few months to bring together our best-of-breed products to offer a fully integrated anesthesia perioperative solution,” comments Ian Carr, CEO of Synopsis Healthcare.  “This is a wonderful opportunity for all our clients and together we will continue to innovate and lead the market in offering solutions that evolve to meet the needs of providers and patients.”

Synopsis Healthcare built their platform to deliver perioperative care and business processes.  Synopsis iQ completely digitizes the journey, offering huge value, clarity and efficiency for the care team and patients.  What’s more, the platform includes decision support to drive quality and consistency up and avoidable harm down.  By implementing a digital pre-operative assessment into their workflow, Synopsis clients are able to reduce cancellation rates, improve staff utilization, increase patient throughput, reduce unnecessary pre-operative testing and reduce risk from litigation.

This partnership represents a new market of enhanced sophistication for the entire perioperative continuum that improves patient satisfaction and outcomes.  While Plexus TG are experts in the field of intraoperative workflows and documentation, they recognize the power of collaborating with a leading solution and company such as Synopsis to better manage patient care.  Plexus TG and Synopsis Healthcare are thrilled with the potential their organizations bring together and the collaborative solutions now available for their clients.
