The inability to correlate paper documentation to actual events has led to modification of the accreditation process and prompted The Joint Commission to adopt unannounced surveys with “tracer methodology” in an attempt to drive measurement of indicators closer to patient encounters. 28 In particular, specific safety goals that are applicable to an anesthesia practice concern the following: ● ● ● Goal 1—patient identification (“time-out”), using two patient identifiers Goal 2—effective communication among care providers (read-back provisions on orders, “do not use” list of abbreviations, effective handoff communication) Goal 3—medication safety (labeled syringes, standardized drug concentrations) 1 Rationale for Purchasing an AIMS ● ● ● ● 13 Goal 7—reduced healthcare-associated infections (use of hand hygiene, reporting of loss of function secondary to infection as a sentinel event) Goal 8—medication reconciliation (accurate list of all medications at every phase of care) Goal 13—as a safety strategy, encouragement of patients to be active participants in their care (define means for patients and families to report concerns) Goal 15—identification of patient safety risks inherent in the patient population All of these patient safety goals have been facilitated through the application of AIMS.

If available from the vendor, a cart-based mobile AIMS computer system configuration, with or without attached physiologic monitoring devices, may be the best choice for locations where delivery of anesthetic care often moves from one procedure room to the next. However, this approach is substantially more expensive than a fixed workstation and requires that the customer provide reliable wireless network access to the AIMS server, secure overnight storage, and define responsibility for physical maintenance and recharging of battery packs.

It may also require that the ACL engage in extensive discussion and negotiation with the radiologists, cardiologists, obstetricians, and nursing personnel, who must also accommodate the changes in their working environment that are created by the installation of an AIMS.
