Press Release: T.J. Samson Community Hospital Implements Total Perioperative Automation with Unibased’s ForSite2020® ORMS Surgery Management Solution

Unibased Systems Architecture, Inc. (Unibased) announced today that T.J. Samson Community Hospital, located in Glasgow, Kentucky, has completed a successful implementation of its award-winning surgery management solution, ForSite2020® periOperative Resource Management System (ORMS), for the complete clinical integration of all areas and stages of the surgical process. ForSite2020® ORMS will provide T.J. Samson with improved operational efficiency, increased productivity, and an enhanced workflow with total perioperative automation for all areas including pre-admission testing; pre-operative services; intra-operative services with real-time surgical documentation and surgeon preference card processing; post-anesthesia care unit (PACU) support; and post-operative services with follow-up coordination.

Unibased’s ForSite2020® ORMS clinical documentation was implemented not only in the operating room but also in the endoscopy and bronchoscopy areas for those procedures as well. It was also deployed in the outpatient area and in the PACU area to offer complete perioperative automation for all surgical areas throughout the enterprise. ForSite2020® ORMS is expected to provide improved communication, ease of access, and the sharing of critical information across the enterprise for positive clinical and financial outcomes. T.J. Samson expects to see gains in efficiency with improved surgical resource coordination and management, faster and more complete surgical documentation, improved physician relations, and an enhanced patient experience while delivering more cases per day.

In similar settings, Unibased’s ForSite2020® ORMS has reduced the amount of time it takes to document cases and capture charges in the operating room by 81%. One client department manager indicated that charting and updating preference card quantities is now taking 5 - 6 minutes in ForSite2020® ORMS, as compared to staff spending an average of 23 - 26 minutes per case in completing a patient’s chart in their former system. Along with increased efficiency, clients have reported enhanced consistency of data and the streamlined standardization of information documented during surgical cases. The implications are increased productivity and higher surgeon satisfaction levels as nurses are spending less time charting and more time on direct patient care activities. Cancellations and delays are significantly reduced, allowing more cases per day and an increased bottom line.
