Siemens Unveils Flexible Financing Solutions to Help Providers Achieve Meaningful Use

MALVERN, Pa., Dec. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Siemens Healthcare today announced a series of flexible financing solutions to help healthcare providers pursue meaningful use objectives and meet deadlines defined within the HITECH provision of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). Featuring zero-percent interest terms for qualified customers, the solutions enable organizations to defer up-front payments associated with their technology investment while meeting criteria for future government incentive monies.

To provide the greatest possible range of choices for customers, Siemens offers solutions from Siemens Financial Services, Inc. as well as from selected partners, including IBM Global Financing and 3-D Financial Services. These options allow customers to choose a customized financing solution that matches their individual technology acquisition roadmaps, business strategies, financial profiles, and technology needs.

"While the advantages of implementing electronic health records have been recognized by top healthcare policy makers for some time now, ARRA funding has the potential to significantly accelerate the fulfillment of the vision for modernizing the national healthcare infrastructure," said Chris Roth, vice president and controller, Siemens Healthcare. "For many healthcare providers, the biggest obstacle is securing the capital investment needed to meet the aggressive schedules defined by ARRA's HITECH provision, as well as the ability to defer payment until the providers are eligible to receive incentives monies."

By bridging the gap between the project implementation and the receipt of ARRA incentive, Siemens will be providing its customers an option which allows them to optimize their cash flow while maximizing return on investment.
