ORSuite© Design

ORSuite© consists of a suite of integrated modular applications, each focusing on a particular type of object (cases, schedules, tables, points-of-care, etc.).

ORSuite© modules include functionality for the following:
  • Planning and scheduling surgical cases
  • Charting electronic perioperative records (pre-intra-post)
  • Recording patient-related events (medications, intubation, consultation, etc.)
  • Monitoring the in-room status of ongoing surgical cases
  • Utilization of resources considered critical to the perioperative encounter (supplies, implants, equipment, rooms, and staff)
  • Managing resource conflicts (staff and equipment)
  • Preference card management (surgeon and procedure specific)
  • Case cart management (pre-op, intra-op, and post-op reconciliation)
  • Case-costing, and
  • Reporting

Rather than have the modules communicate directly, they are connected via open database connectivity (ODBC), allowing for more aggressive feature development and easier support.

The N-tier client-server architecture and open database design allow support of both Oracle and SQL Server database management systems.

The patient-centric design, born from CCOW-based development protocols, is geared toward automating processes rather than simple tasks, allowing for better adaptation of site-specific workflow requirements.

Development Environment

The integrated development environment (IDE) used to build and maintain the object-oriented software design and development is the Microsoft Visual Studio suite of development tools.

The core code set consists primarily of Visual Basic 6, with more and chanel replica handbags more .NET code being implemented, with some C#.

Microsoft COM-based services and technologies, as well as ActiveX controls, have been utilized in the development of most modules. A strategy has recently been implemented to use interoperability to transparently integrate these investments with the .NET common language runtime (CLR).


The N-tier client-server architecture and open database design make exchanging of data with other hospital information systems chanel replica sale straightforward.

A number of interface modules based on HL7 protocols have been implemented, including solutions for retrieving patient demographics data (ADT), sending cost data to billing systems (DFT), and both receiving and sending admissions planning data (SCH), among others.

The interface packages are designed to include custom components that can be easily configured to accommodate specific hospital requirements.

The N-tier client-server architecture and flexible open database structure make managing language requirements simple, including the ability chanel replica to have the default language be user-specific rather than site-specific. As a result, authentication at the  user login level can be defined so that one user can run the program in one language while another user runs the program in a different language.


Use of the familiar Windows platform and industry-standard personal computers has served to simplify implementation and user training.

The N-tier client-server architecture and open database design provide flexibility that enables the accommodation of multidisciplinary, site-specific, requirements, including configuration to support unique workflow processes of each customer.

Comprehensive online guides and handbooks are available via the web portal to guide the user through the multiple phases of the implementation process.

User and vendor-driven modules are available for building tables and lists, as well as defining preferences, default values, and other parameters that configure the system to accommodate user-specific needs.

Recognizing the value of the hospital IT department, it's important that they be involved in the implementation process. This can include assistance in conducting a site survey, preparing a comprehensive document (the Customer Technology Assessment) to be used as a reference of hospital current and future technology strategies, in addition to providing assistance in planning development strategies.

In addition to online access to training guides and comprehensive step-by-step help systems, users are provided classroom style train-the-trainer instruction, and certification as an ORSuite© System Administrator ("OSA") is also provided to at least one individual.

Customer Support

The N-tier client-server architecture and open database design also make it easier to provide remote helpdesk support to customers.

A state-of-the-art web portal provides customers 24/7 access to file downloads, new releases, updates and documentation, as well as the ability to query the incident and request database and submit new incidents and requests.
