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.
