Perioperative Leader of the Year

In December 2014, Mohawk Valley Health System affiliate Faxton St. Luke’s Healthcare (FSLH) received the Perioperative Leader of the Year award from Surgical Information Systems (SIS). The award was given as part of the annual SIS Perioperative Leadership Awards. Demonstrating outstanding leadership in meeting clinical, financial and operational goals with support from the SIS perioperative solution, hospital awards were presented in four categories. SIS recognized hospital systems that exemplify the innovative use of healthcare information technology to advance perioperative operations. 

“SIS clients are making great strides in adapting to today’s healthcare demands and this year’s winners are leaders in the perioperative industry,” said SIS Executive Vice President of Client Operations, Douglas Rempfer. “We are honored to recognize them for their advancements and accomplishments.”

FSLH received the Perioperative Leader of the Year award for work done to validate the latest release of the SIS Solution (v5.1) with FSLH’s Allscripts Health Information System. FSLH and the anesthesia team worked closely with SIS to bring new capabilities including updated preop anesthesia documentation that includes a new Problem List and Evaluations to market. 

“I want to congratulate the Perioperative Services team for receiving this award and thank SIS for the recognition,” said Chuck Williams, BSHA, director of Operations for Perioperative Services, Mohawk Valley Health System. “I appreciate the continual working relationship between the Perioperative team and SIS so that we may provide the best care possible to our patients.”

SIS provides software solutions that are uniquely designed to add value at every point of the perioperative process. Developed specifically for the complex surgical environment, all SIS solutions — including anesthesia — are architected on a single database and integrate easily with other hospital systems. SIS offers the only perioperative analytics tools that have been granted Peer Reviewed status by the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA). SIS is also the first AIMS provider to be designated as an AQI Preferred Vendor by the Anesthesia Quality Institute (AQI). For more information, view
