SIS Delivers Advanced Interoperability With Siemens Soarian Clinicals To Improve Efficiency, Communication
Date:12/12/2012

ATLANTA, Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Surgical Information Systems ('SIS'), a leader in perioperative information systems, announced today that it has released a new version of its perioperative management solution for organizations using Soarian® Clinicals from Siemens Healthcare. The enhanced technology delivers additional interoperability with Soarian Clinicals that enables users to seamlessly access information and document care without duplicating efforts.

With this release, users can launch Soarian Clinicals from within SIS perioperative management, keeping the patient and user in context. For example, a pre-op nurse can perform common Soarian Clinicals activities, such as documenting a patient's assessment, as well as verifying and administering medications for that patient via the Soarian Medication Administration Check™ (MAK) application – all, directly from within the perioperative management system.

"In the past OR nurses and anesthesiologists had to switch between applications multiple times during a case, logging in and looking up the patient each time," said Brooke Burkhalter, BSN, Senior Clinical IT Nurse Analyst at MedCentral Health System in Mansfield, Ohio. "Now we have a single integrated system, which saves time and frustration because users can easily document all aspects of care for the same patient without toggling between systems."

This enhanced level of interoperability also makes enterprise documentation available to the surgical team, which was not easily accessible in the past. An OR nurse, for example, may now view the patient record from Soarian Clinicals within his or her perioperative workflow, for example, to verify that a prophylactic antibiotic was administered or to see that a pregnancy test was performed. Having such information more readily available can further support an organization's patient safety, operational, and financial goals.

"SIS and Siemens have delivered a level of interoperability that puts the right information into the hands of the right people at the right time," said Mike Mistretta, Vice President and CIO at MedCentral. "Maintaining patient and user context between applications is a significant win for our organization because it simplifies documentation workflow and helps ensure accuracy of the patient record." 

Building on a solid foundation of interoperability established throughout the long-term strategic alliance, this new release strengthens interoperability between SIS and Siemens, further integrating acute perioperative processes with the rest of the enterprise. 

"Robust interoperability is a top request by healthcare CIOs and their organizations as they work to meet the universal challenge of improving care quality, efficiency and safety," said Ed Daihl, SIS Chief Executive Officer. "As the exclusive perioperative information technology and analytics provider for Siemens clients, SIS is committed to collaborating with Siemens to continue to deliver innovative, interoperable IT solutions that simplify information accessibility and exchange."
