July 13, 2010

WAKEFIELD, Mass. — July 12, 2010 — Picis announced today that St. Joseph Health System (SJHS) in Orange, Calif., has selected Picis perioperative and anesthesia information management solutions for 13 facilities and an estimated 81 operating rooms (ORs) as the standard across the IDN. This enables SJHS to consolidate six different databases into a single integrated total perioperative automation solution using Picis technology to capture, compare, benchmark and share meaningful data across the enterprise.

SJHS previously deployed Picis solutions in several of its ministries, including St. Jude Medical Center in Fullerton, Calif. Beginning in 2005, St. Jude automated its perioperative suite from surgical scheduling through surgery and anesthesia to PACU.

SJHS plans to implement Picis solutions on a consolidated database and go live sequentially across its ministries with OR Manager, SmarTrack, Picis Perioperative Dashboard, Anesthesia Manager, PACU Manager, Extelligence OR and Extelligence Anesthesia, all part of the CareSuite family of solutions. This end-to-end information management solution supports access and retrieval of patient electronic health records (EHR) and data to help in clinician decision making.

Facilities included in this enterprise-wide agreement include:  Queen of the Valley Medical Center, Napa, Calif.; St. Jude Medical Center, Fullerton, Calif.; St. Joseph Hospital, Eureka, Calif.; Redwood Memorial Hospital, Fortuna, Calif.; Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital, Santa Rosa, Calif.; Petaluma Valley Hospital, Petaluma, Calif.; St. Joseph Hospital, Orange, Calif.; Mission Hospital, Mission Viejo, Calif.; Mission Hospital, Laguna Beach, Calif.; St. Mary Medical Center, Apple Valley, Calif.; St. Mary Outpatient Surgery Pavilion, Apple Valley, Calif.; Covenant Medical Center, Lubbock, TX; and Covenant Woman’s & Children’s Hospital, Lubbock, TX.
