The Growing Market for Anesthesia Software
Liability, Integration and the Benefits of Adoption

November 13, 2009

According to the American Society of Anesthesiologists, the average per-year cost of anesthesia malpractice insurance is among the highest of any healthcare specialty. Consequently, that climate of high liability has left some anesthesiologists hesitant to automate their work, fearing that electronic tracking and documentation without appropriate context could create even greater liability. Yet if increased liability is a viable concern, why is the anesthesia information system (AIS) market steadily growing year after year? Also, what benefits does an AIS bring, and which vendors are best able to deliver? How important is integration, and which vendors can provide robust integration with the surgery management system? To answer these questions and better understand this relatively unknown market segment, KLAS interviewed 100 organizations who are live with an AIS, representing an estimated 75 percent of the organizations doing anesthesia documentation in the United States.
