"We honestly weren't expecting to learn anything new around our practice from these apps.
However, the data was incredibly eye-opening. We've been sincerely trying to get as good as we can, but we've lacked real measurement of how we're performing. Carestation Insights is giving us the actionable data we need."

Carestation Insights is a suite of analytics apps powered by the fully digital Aisys CS² anaesthesia delivery system. Aisys CS² sends over 300 data points to the cloud including measured and set ventilation and gas values, alarms, machine status and error codes.
Carestation Insights provides you with a powerful, robust and simple to use suite of cloud-based applications, easily accessed on your computer or tablet. There is enormous potential in exploring new ways of analyzing this data in order to develop a detailed and deep understanding of patient and processes through actionable clinical, operational and economic insights.
Carestation Insights is designed to support:
Provide transparency to anesthetic agent usage and costs across your department and use the data to support low-flow initiatives. View the low flow Dashboard Flyer for anaesthesia department
View the low flow Dashboard Flyer for administration
Keep track of when anesthesia machines were checked out across your entire department to improve scheduling workflow and ensure patient safety. View the Checkout Dashboard Flyer
Carestation™ Insights Case study
In 2016, GE teamed up with Prof. Dr. Ross Kennedy, Anesthesiologist at Christchurch Hospital, New Zealand, and Associate Professor at University of Otago, New Zealand, and Dr. Richard French, Anesthesiologist and Clinical Director at Christchurch Hospital, to use the Carestation Insights platform and its Agent Cost Dashboard to discover previously unidentified opportunities during the induction period to further reduce an already low mean fresh gas flow rate at their facility. Already low mean fresh gas flow rates during agent delivery were decreased by an additional 13% to an astounding 0.745 l/min after the intervention1
