"Data is destiny"; this piece looks at way we can unlock it for Anesthetists. The Open-Source Anesthesia Electronic Medical Record (OSAEMR) was developed specifically for Nurse Anesthetists. Its focus is on solo or small-practice nurse anesthetists operating in environments with limited or no network and computing resources other than an iPad. One patient, one nurse anesthetist, and one iPad. It can now be scaled to larger multi-provider practices outside of CRNAs. Hear how this innovation came about. This piece was part of our coverage of The American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA)...

This popular and refreshing talk is presented here after it was a big hit at the Chicago 2020 conference organised by Evidence Based Perioperative Medicine (EBPOM).

However, as one of our guests suggests, perhaps we should call this one a "CPOC-apalooza!" as a lot of our focus is on The CPOC...
