Surgical Information Systems Partners with Siemens to Deliver Advanced Perioperative Solutions to Enterprise Health Information System Customers

ATLANTA, June 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Surgical Information Systems ('SIS') today announced a partnership with Siemens Healthcare expanding the reach of the Siemens health information system portfolio (including Soarian®, INVISION® and MedSeries4®) into the perioperative environment, including the SIS Anesthesia solution.  With this agreement, SIS and Siemens address customers' specialized needs for managing the complete perioperative workflow from pre-admission to discharge. Additionally, Siemens will leverage this partnership to supplement its portfolio with industry-validated solutions for anesthesia information management systems, which give the company improved access to a market segment  that independent analysts indicate is primed for multi-billion dollar growth by the year 2017.


"The decision to select SIS as our surgical IT partner was finalized after extensive research, and we are looking forward to offering one of the leading perioperative IT solutions on the market, which gives us a stronger ability to support the efforts of healthcare providers to efficiently deliver high-quality and safe surgical care," said John Glaser, PhD, CEO, Health Services Business Unit, Siemens Healthcare. "This collaboration extends Soarian's proven workflow benefits to the perioperative service line and connects operating room clinicians, administrators, and processes with the enterprise, while providing interoperability with the patient record."

The solution will enable bi-directional sharing of pre-, intra- and post-operative procedure assessments, an electronic anesthesia record, forms, and data between Soarian and SIS. Operating room quality data can be extracted from the SIS OR Solution, and measured and reported in Siemens systems, to support enterprise reporting requirements such as meaningful use criteria. Moreover, continuum of care data will be made available through SIS Analytics to foster departmental initiatives including the Surgical Care Improvement Project (SCIP), anesthesia reporting, and overall clinical, financial and operational initiatives.

"The partnership with Siemens Healthcare Health Services Business Unit will provide customers with end-to-end health IT benefits throughout the perioperative process," said Ed Daihl, CEO, SIS. "We already have a large number of joint customers and have been working to ensure interoperability. We look forward to continued collaboration  with Siemens and the additional opportunities it will provide to customers who are looking to further optimize their processes with the benefits of an enterprise solution in perioperative settings."
