Do you get wary of all the extra work associated with surgery days? From checking in the surgery patients to the billing, Smart Flow has got you covered.
With Smart Flow, you can create your known surgery cases into Smart Flow the evening before, create a consent form at the touch of a button that the owners will need to fill out, thereby being able to verify their own information (no more misheard phone numbers or email addresses!), after which you can bring their pet into the treatment area.
Smart Flow can save templates with the drugs, at set dosages, and calculate them based on the given weight of the patient and write it all down for you. You can save numerous amounts of templates, per-doctor, per-surgery, both even. So from the patient that you’ve created in Smart Flow, with the signed consent form, you can also get a calculated drug plan based on the template that you picked.
You’re trying to monitor the patient, write down values on the anesthetic sheet on your clipboard, making sure that the patient is in a deep enough anesthetic plane without being too deep. Also while making sure they’re breathing right, making sure that you remembered to open the pop-off valve, that you keep time to give cefazolin when they need it, that fluids are running correctly. It’s a lot to deal with, isn’t it?
With Smart Flow’s Anesthetic sheet, you can write down values in 10 seconds, tops. It can even be auto-populated for you if you have an anesthetic monitor that connects with Smart Flow. It will even remember previously entered information, so if the respiratory rate is the same, you won’t even have to type anything.
Our electronic anesthetic sheet is something every technician monitoring surgery deserves - it’s simple, easy to use, and frees up a whole lot of time, meaning more focus on your patient, rather than on the paperwork.
Finally, the billing. With Smart Flow, every time you indicate in a patient’s flow sheet that you did the procedure or gave the medication, if it is set as a billable item it will collect on a billing report PDF. A one-stop overview of everything that was done to the patient that needs to be billed for, perfect for the end of shift billing. And if your practice management software is integrated – we can automatically charge the patient’s account.
Our clinic implemented SFS into our practice almost a month ago now and we LOVE it! We love the functionality and ease of the program! It was very easy to teach our team how to use the SFS features and it has truly made our treatment sheets SO much more detailed, easy to read and manage and no matter where in the hospital we are, we have easy access to every patient's treatment sheet!
It helps us better treat and manage our inpatients which can number between 30-40 on a busy day. Not only is it computer based but it is iPad based meaning that we now manage all our treatments on electronic ICU sheets using iPads at kennel side, replacing the metal backs with paper ICU sheets we used to use.
A brilliant product that even some of our more technophobic staff are enjoying using. In patient care is so much easier to oversee, with accurate case recording and prompt treatments being administered. Especially useful when there are multiple in patients on multiple treatments, since everything is summarised in one place.
We are a 10-doctor 24-hour emergency hospital in the DFW area. We transitioned from using cage-side paper charts to SmartFlow electronic charts almost 9 months ago and have never looked back. It is hard to imagine what we did without it.
We are a veterinary small animal internal medicine clinic and we have been using Smart Flow Sheet exclusively for our ICU cases for 4 months. We have had up to 15 cases on it at one time. Currently, one of our patients has 22 points of monitoring, 3 fluid types, 10 medications, and 8 physical treatments. There is no doubt that Smart Flow Sheet has been instrumental in allowing our nurses to focus on his nursing.
