ATLANTA, May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Surgical Information Systems (SIS) successfully completed the healthcare industry's week-long interoperability testing event, Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) Connectathon, and participated in the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Interoperability Showcase in Chicago.
The Connectathon is the healthcare IT industry's largest interoperability testing event. The full range of profiles defined in the IHE Technical Frameworks are tested each year in a carefully organized and supervised environment involving more than 70 vendors and more than 130 healthcare IT systems. During a Connectathon, participants' systems exchange information with systems from many other participating organizations, performing all of the transactions required for the roles they have selected, in support of defined clinical functions.
SIS Anesthesia, a system that automates data collection and documentation requirements through a real-time graphical interface, successfully completed the 2009 Connectathon. In doing so it proved its capability to transmit a patient's data securely to the right physician or system at the right time in the correct format.
"At SIS we are interoperability experts - we have to be," said SIS Chief Technology Officer Eric Nilsson. "While maintaining a focus on providing unparalleled solutions for the perioperative department, we have always ensured that our systems perform at the very highest level of interoperability standards. Our participation in the IHE Connectathon and the HIMSS Interoperability Showcase this year underscored this commitment."
The HIMSS09 Interoperability Showcase featured state-of-the-art interactive demonstrations showing how applications share patient data across a range of healthcare settings. More than 70 clinical information systems came together and exchanged patient health information electronically - from application to application, system to system, and setting to setting - across multiple healthcare enterprises, securely and accurately.
SIS provides software solutions that are uniquely designed to add value at every point of the perioperative process. Developed specifically for the complex surgical environment, all SIS solutions - including anesthesia - are architected on a single database and integrate easily with other hospital systems. SIS offers the only surgical scheduling system endorsed by the American Hospital Association (AHA), and a rules-based charging system that has been granted Peer Reviewed status by the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA).
