A Collaborative Partnership between the Multicenter Handoff Collaborative and an Electronic Health Record Vendor.

Appl Clin Inform 2021 May 28;12(3):647-654. Epub 2021 Jul 28.

Department of Anesthesiology, Massachusetts Eye and Ear, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, United States.

Objectives:  The operating room is a specialized, complex environment with many factors that can impede effective communication during transitions of care between anesthesia clinicians. We postulated that an efficient, accessible, standardized tool for intraoperative handoffs built into standard workflow would improve communication and handoff safety. Most institutions now use an electronic health record (EHR) system for patient care and have independently designed intraoperative handoff tools, but these home-grown tools are not scalable to other organizations and lack vendor-supported features.
