Abstract

The number of institutions implementing AIMS is increasing. Shortcomings in the design and implementation of EMRs have been associated with unanticipated consequences, including changes in workflow. These have often resulted from the carryover of paper-based documentation practices into an electronic environment. The new generation of mobile devices allows providers to have situational awareness of multiple care sites simultaneously, possibly allowing for improved proactive decision making. Although potentially facilitating safer anesthetic supervision, technologic and cultural barriers remain. Security, quality of information delivery, regulatory issues, and return on investment will continue as challenges in implementing and maintaining this new technology.
