"SIS clients continue to impress us year after year with the results achieved through the use of the SIS Solution to support their goals of providing better patient care, improving financial return, and streamlining operational processes," said SIS CEO Ed Daihl. "We have truly outstanding clients and we are honored to recognize them for their innovation and leadership."

Awards were given to the following institutions:

St. Clair Hospital – Pittsburgh, PA
Patient Impact Award
This award recognized the perioperative staff at St. Clair for their success in improving communication across their team. St. Clair developed questionnaires, workflow wizards, custom forms and reports to document specific data elements for use in quality reporting. By implementing these practices, St. Clair was able to reduce surgical site infections and met Joint Commission requirements to provide patients with up-to-date medication lists.

O'Connor Hospital – San Jose, CA
Financial Achievement Award
O'Connor Hospital used SIS Analytics and Rules Based Charging to improve their financial performance, generating top-line growth in orthopedic service, improving charge process, increased gross revenue capture, and improved operational efficiency. O'Connor Hospital reduced cost per case for high volume procedures such as total joints and other service lines.

Holy Spirit Hospital – Camp Hill, PA
Winning Team Award
The team at Holy Spirit leveraged the configurable SIS solution to redesign intraoperative documentation to match end-user workflow and to create workflow wizards to streamline OR scheduling. Additionally, the team's implementation and use of SIS Rules Based Charging resulted in a 6% increase in revenue in the first quarter of 2012. These changes improved efficiency while supporting patient safety goals.

University of California Irvine Medical Center – Irvine, CA
Advancing Anesthesia Award
As a SIS development partner, the Department of Anesthesiology at the University of California, Irvine, (UCI) aided in the advancement of various perioperative tools that support the practice of anesthesiology. UCI assisted with the development of SIS OR View, a tool that enhances perioperative communication within the operating room between all staff involved in a surgical procedure.

In addition, the UCI team also established rules and alerts using SIS' patient tracking tool, SIS Com, focused around anesthetic milestones such as induction times and patient arrival. Finally, UCI developed a new data compliance view for SIS Analytics Anesthesia View to ensure that the anesthesiologist and circulating nurse capture all of the required data and milestones.  

Huntsville Hospital – Huntsville, AL
Perioperative Leader of the Year
The Perioperative Leader of the Year award recognized Huntsville Hospital as a leader in the industry for their contribution on several perioperative IT initiatives. Driven by a culture that encourages innovation, Huntsville Hospital understands the unique clinical and fiscal contributions of the perioperative department to the entire health system and they have continually stressed the need for integrated data flow. The team at Huntsville works closely with the SIS team providing feedback and additional resources in order to improve SIS solutions for current and future clients.

According to Rick Corn, Vice President and CIO of Huntsville Hospital System, "In our experience, SIS has proven to be a valuable and responsive partner. The Huntsville team requires the best tools to help deliver high quality care in the most efficient way possible and we are pleased to be recognized with the SIS 2012 Perioperative Leader of the Year Award. This award illustrates the teamwork and innovation we have achieved with our SIS relationship. I am proud of the Huntsville team and their focus on consistently improving our integrated processes and clinical outcomes."
