Mobile Anesthesiologists, LLC Expands Deployment of Shareable Ink

Anesthesia Group Streamlines Revenue Cycle and Standardizes Quality Reporting

NASHVILLE, TN and CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - May 3, 2011) - Shareable Ink®, the leading provider of enterprise-grade digital pen and paper applications for healthcare, and Mobile Anesthesiologists®, LLC, a data-driven ambulatory and office-based anesthesia practice, today announced the implementation of the Shareable Ink Anesthesia Suite. The clinical documentation solution's portability and ease of use help support the added demands on a provider group that travels to its patients. The initial deployment will expand to all care settings where Mobile Anesthesiologists provides anesthesia services.

Shareable Ink enables clinicians to document on familiar paper forms with no change in workflow. Using the clinician's own handwritten notes on regular anesthesia forms, Shareable Ink's software records the pen strokes, translates them into discrete digital data and images, and provides real-time alerts on missing or erroneous items. The electronic data is immediately available through a secure web connection and transferred to backend systems, enhancing administrative and clinical operations.

"The Shareable Ink Anesthesia Suite is the ultimate mobile data capture solution," said Dr. David Barinholtz, President and CEO, Mobile Anesthesiologists. "Our providers can now capture clinical documentation in every care setting they visit, without changing workflow or compromising productivity. The built-in business intelligence tools provide unprecedented insights into our operations and an objective measure of the quality of care delivered by our clinicians."

Shareable Ink is a key element of Mobile Anesthesiologists' growth strategy, streamlining the billing process and standardizing clinical documentation and quality reporting. Outpatient surgery now accounts for almost 80 percent of all surgical procedures performed in the U.S., and more than 20 percent are performed in the physician's office. Therefore, physicians increasingly recognize the benefits mobile anesthesiologists deliver to their practices, such as enhanced comfort and convenience for their patients. Payers have also recognized the efficacy of office-based surgery in containing the rising cost of healthcare.

"We are delighted to work with Mobile Anesthesiologists, a pioneer in the growing field of ambulatory and office-based anesthesia," said Stephen S. Hau, President and CEO, Shareable Ink. "Their quick and successful adoption of our technology is an example of Shareable Ink's flexibility in any care setting -- even when the provider travels to the patient."
