Abstract
THE COMPUTERIZED ANESTHESIA RECORD HAS BEEN STRONGLY ADVOCATED AS A METHOD OF INCREASING THE EFFICIENCY, ACCURACY, PRESENTATION, AND TREND IDENTIFICATION OF PATIENT DATA, THEREBY INCREASING PATIENT SAFETY. REPORTED PROBLEMS WITH THE COMPUTER-USER INTERFACE HAVE STOPPED WIDESPREAD USE. INNOVATION, INC.S', OBJECTIVES ARE TO: (1) DEVELOP A GRAPHICS-BASED, VISUALLY INTERFACED COMPUTER-ASSISTED ANESTHESIA RECORD (VISI-CAARE); (2) QUANTITATIVELY DEMONSTRATE THAT THIS USER INTERFACE IS SUCCESSFUL; AND 93) DEMONSTRATE THAT VISI-CAARE INCREASES PHYSICIAN VIGILANCE AND PATIENT CARE. IN PHASE I, A SIMULATION OF VISI-CAARE IS PLANNED. A METHODOLOGY WILL BE USED TO QUANTITATIVELY DEMONSTRATE THAT THE USER INTERFACE IS APPROPRIATELY DESIGNED OR IDENTIFY PORTIONS THAT ARE NOT. A PLAN FOR THE PHASE II SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT OF VISI-CAARE WILL THEN BE ESTABLISHED, AND A MODEL OF ANESTHESIOLOGIST VIGILANCE WILL FURTHER BE DEVELOPED. BASED ON THE MODEL, PRELIMINARY DATA ON ANESTHESIOLOGIST VIGILANCE WILL BE OBTAINED. THIS INFORMATION WILL BE USED IN DEVELOPING THE CLINICAL TRIAL OFVISI-CAARE IN PHASE II.
