Shareable Ink, the company that transforms handwritten documentation to structured data and analytics, has announced the successful submission of quality data to the Society for Ambulatory Anesthesia (SAMBA) Clinical Outcome Registry (SCOR) using the Shareable Ink Anesthesia SuiteTM. Anesthesia data is captured electronically and submitted to SCOR as a natural by-product of case documentation in Shareable Ink’s anesthesia EHR.
Through the use of natural input tools, Shareable Ink works as a portable anesthesia electronic health record that allows any anesthesia provider, even those working in ambulatory and office-based settings, to easily and effortlessly capture quality data at the point of care during the course of their normal case documentation. This data is fed directly to SCOR to obtain national benchmarks for the anesthesia group and discover best practices for important clinical problems, such as postoperative nausea and vomiting, delayed awakening, GERD and perioperative glucose management.
“The SCOR registry currently holds more than 10,000 cases used to track performance measures and is the result of several rounds of revision based on input from active, practicing members of the anesthesia community,” said Dr. John Dilger, SAMBA President. “Through partnerships with industry innovators like Shareable Ink, we’re positioned to make incredible progress to exponentially grow the amount of data and advance the quality of care, so we can have a greater impact on future patient outcomes.”
SCOR is structured to include elements needed for national quality reporting initiatives such as AHRQ, NQF and the Joint Commission.
“Shareable Ink enables the easiest capture of structured data at the point of care,” said Stephen S. Hau, President and CEO, Shareable Ink. “We then share that data with national registries, such as SCOR, to deliver on the promises of data-driven healthcare. At the end of the day, it’s about providing measurable comparisons and insights to help individual providers, facilities, and the industry in general improve healthcare outcomes.”
