Ingalls, St. Peter’s Latest to Launch Siemens Soarian Clinicals

September 21, 2009 – Ingalls Health System and St. Peter’s Hospital are the latest healthcare providers to successfully launch Siemens Soarian Clinicals Healthcare Information System (HIS) in their facilities to enhance patient care delivery processes, increase efficiencies, and reduce costs and errors.
 
The nationwide push for greater adoption of health information technology as part of the larger healthcare reform movement is stronger than ever as the federal government moves closer to finalizing ‘Meaningful Use’ criteria. In line with this, healthcare providers across the nation are seeking to enhance their use of health IT through partnerships with vendors who are committed to and capable of helping them successfully implement certified systems that will enable them to better streamline operations, improve the patient experience, and maximize potential benefits under the HITECH provision of the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA).
 
For the Chicago-based Ingalls Health System, comprised of a 563-bed hospital and five outpatient centers, their June launch of Soarian Clinicals, Siemens’ next-generation HIS that helps hospital staff manage patient data and processes across the enterprise, further extends their existing Siemens partnership and robust Soarian Health IT infrastructure. According to the provider, Ingalls is already seeing strong, measurable results through its ongoing use of Soarian Financials, Scheduling, Med Administration Check, Pharmacy, and Decision Support.
 
At Albany, New York’s 437-bed St. Peter’s Hospital, one of the region's largest healthcare providers with more than 4,500 employees and 600 physicians, there is equal momentum and energy. In late May, the facility – part of the comprehensive Catholic Health East network – brought Soarian Clincials live and in August, added Siemens Med Administration Check, an innovative solution that will help St. Peter’s positively identify drug and patient using point-of-care barcode technology to help reduce the human element in medication errors and preventable adverse drug events at the time of administration. The hospital also has upcoming plans to install Soarian CPOE and Soarian Enterprise Document Management.
