An anesthesia information management system that helps anesthesiologists focus on the patient —
while accurately documenting and optimizing clinical and financial outcome
Drive Clinical & Financial Performance

              Both hospitals and anesthesiologists face increasing
              pressures to improve patient care while cutting costs.
              More than 47% of hospitals report a reduction in
              operating room hours due to anesthesia staffing
              challenges. Caregivers must work more efficiently,
              eliminating unnecessary manual procedures while
              safeguarding against medical errors.

              McKesson Anesthesia Care™ is an intuitive, web-
              based anesthesia management system designed to
              meet these challenges. The comprehensive solution
              automatically captures data, reveals medication
              contraindication, provides allergy notification and
              speeds billing via effective charge capture — driving
              better clinical and financial performance.
