Founded by Drs. David L. Reich, MD, and Marina Krol, PhD, the Anesthesia Informatics Research (AIR) group has long been a leader in Anesthesia Information Management System (AIMS) implementation and research. The Department of Anesthesiology was among the first to implement an AIMS in the early 1990’s, and since then the AIR group has been on the forefront of utilizing anesthesia data for sophisticated administrative and research functions. In the past several years our effort has been focused on creating an integrated data warehouse that combines intraoperative physiologic data with perioperative clinical and administrative data to create a single source for large scale data mining. Current projects include multi-disciplinary efforts to examine the role of genetics in response to common anesthetic drugs and to apply "big data" analysis techniques to intraoperative physiologic data. We also continue to provide support for departmental clinical and administrative activities.
