Abstract

Anesthesia information management systems (AIMS) are becoming more commonplace in operating rooms across the world and have the potential to help clinicians measure and improve perioperative quality. However, to realize the full potential of AIMS, clinicians must first understand their capabilities and limitations. This article reviews the literature on AIMS, focusing on areas where AIMS have been shown to have a meaningful impact on quality, safety, and operational efficiency.
