The American Hospital Association(AHA) today announced it has exclusively endorsed the Anesthesia Information Management System, SIS Anesthesia, from Surgical Information Systems (SIS). AHA Solutions, Inc., a subsidiary of the AHA, awards the AHA endorsement to products and services that help member hospitals and health care organizations achieve operational excellence.
