ABC's Affiliate Company, Plexus Technology Group, Strengthens Partnership with Codonics by Integrating Anesthesia Safety Technology

July 27, 2017

The Anesthesia Business Consultants’ (ABC) affiliate company, Plexus Technology Group, LLC (Plexus TG), a fully KLAS-rated and trusted anesthesia information management systems (AIMS) partner, and Codonics, Inc., a global leader in award-winning patient safety and image documentation solutions, strengthens their partnership by elevating Plexus TG to a value-added reseller for the Codonics Safe Label System™ (SLS).  Mirroring the close technical integration of the systems, clients will now be able to source the Codonics SLS with Anesthesia Touch™ and Pharmacy Touch™ together.

The Codonics innovative medication safety system is installed in more than 5,000 operating rooms.  The system helps to eliminate medication labeling errors using visual and audible electronic safety checks, ensuring consistency every time a medication is prepared. It provides full compliance with the National Safety Patient Goals® of The Joint Commission standards and the American Society of Anesthesiologists.  The SLS also prints medication labels, IV line labels, invasive monitor lines and other operating room needs on demand. 

Plexus TG's combined anesthesia and pharmacy management system works with the Codonics SLS to automatically track inventory and simplify controlled substance reconciliation.  The combination is tightly coupled for documentation at the point of care, avoiding the pitfalls for duplicate entry.  This solution simplifies anesthesia medication management with its intuitive, easy-to-use system that delivers to pharmacists and anesthesia providers an integrated solution with controlled-access cabinets, barcoding syringe labeling, closed-loop reconciliation and automated charging.

“We are excited to partner with Plexus TG and provide our customers with a turnkey medication management solution for the perioperative environment,” said Peter O. Botten, President & CEO of Codonics, Inc.  “Integrating Codonics Safe Label System with Plexus TG’s Anesthesia Touch reinforces patient safety throughout the entire surgical process while closing the loop, enabling electronic reconciliation and documentation at the point of care.”

Plexus TG is delighted to offer Codonics SLS with Anesthesia Touch and Pharmacy Touch products to their customers as a fully integrated solution, offering a complete answer for barcode medication verification of IV meds at the point of care in the operating room.  Plexus TG has enjoyed working with the team at Codonics and they look forward to teaming up together on future projects.
