Interoperability in the PeriOperative Suite: Promise and Reality

In recent years, hospitals have made great strides in the adoption of electronic health records (EHR). As of 2014, 76% of all hosptals in the United States were employing an EHR system to manage clinical information (American Hospital Association, 2015).  The perioperative staff is now looking for improvements to their workflow and work environment from these electronic systems, seeking patient-safety focused integration of information carefully selected from the growing flood of electronic data.
