Electronic Preoperative

Assessment Workflow
Diane Poa software

Anaesthesia is a demanding field where accuracy and responsiveness are critical.
As a patient’s condition can change rapidly, healthcare professionals have a duty to protect their well-being and ensure their safety.

At the core of this complex challenge is the preoperative assessment (Poa). This critical point in each patient’s care pathway provides anaesthetists with the opportunity to collect vital information, assess risks, and make informed decisions before the start of surgery.
Conducting a thorough Pre Operative Assessment allows anaesthetists to decide the best and safest anaesthetic options that will optimize surgical outcomes and patient recovery.
The result of close collaboration between IT engineers and physicians, Diane Poa digitizes the preoperative assessment process to better meet the needs of anaesthetists.
