with Dr. Merlin Wehling, President Sonno Anesthesia
I immediately saw that AnesthesiaEMR is very much like a paper record, very simple. Something that a non-technical person can spend 30 minutes with, and be proficient at the anesthesia charting. I didn’t want a solution that would require my team to spend two days in training. With Graphium, it’s not necessary: Everybody knows how to do paper and pen.
We have a case where we brought on a new surgeon. And we had to buy them a lot of equipment. We needed to know very quickly what our time frame for getting that equipment paid for was. I could tell the CEO of the hospital in minutes how many cases he did, how many cases were scheduled, and project when that equipment would be paid for. In other systems, you look and look – two hours later – you still might not have the answer.
There are a lot of computers in our hospital, and a lot of people complain about their computers, but I haven’t had a single complaint about the Graphium tablet. We’ve had providers drop them, smack them around, but they keep working great. If I have a wifi connection, I know that Graphium is going to work.
