Plexus awarded US patent for Anesthesia Touch

MiraMed Global Services, headquartered in Jackson, Michigan, announce that its subsidiary, Plexus Information Systems (Plexus IS) has been awarded a US patent for its revolutionary Anesthesia Touch, which encompasses capabilities to monitor patients, including video images while in the operating room, communicate with patient monitoring devices, interface with the patient’s electronic medical record, receive and display video images of the patient during an operation and operate an infusion device connected to the patient.

Plexus IS, a leading anesthesia information management systems (AIMS) provider, developed Anesthesia Touch, a comprehensive AIMS that works on an iPad and workstation, for use by hospitals, surgery centers and individual providers.

It is cloud-based, offers a flexible platform and allows anesthesiologists to use it when and where it is convenient for them. This patent demonstrates that Anesthesia Touch is singular in its approach to AIMS."

Albert Woo, MD, President of Plexus Information Systems, speaks to the strength of Anesthesia Touch, "We are very pleased that Anesthesia Touch has been recognized for its contribution to the marketplace. Anesthesia Touch has the power of an AIMS with the simplicity of an app and the industry appreciates that ease of use."
