Siemens Healthineers, Florida Hospital Collaborate to Improve Health Care Outcomes

January 23, 2018 – Siemens Healthineers and Florida Hospital, part of Adventist Health System, have announced a multi-phase collaboration agreement to transform healthcare delivery through the development of outcomes-based collaborative projects. The long-term agreement leverages the imaging technology innovation and industry expertise of Siemens Healthineers as well as the integrated delivery network (IDN) of Florida Hospital and its ongoing investment in improving healthcare affordability, outcomes and experience for their customers.

In Phase I of the collaboration agreement, Siemens Healthineers and Florida Hospital Celebration Health will incorporate cardiac computed tomography angiography (CCTA) into the hospital’s clinical protocol. The goal of the six-month study is to optimally assess and manage intermediate-risk patients who arrive at Celebration Health’s emergency department (ED) with acute chest pain. The study will utilize Celebration Health’s Somatom Definition Flash dual-source CT system from Siemens Healthineers. Future phases of the collaboration agreement will similarly explore pathways to enhance the overall patient experience while delivering value-based, affordable care.

“This agreement with Siemens Healthineers underscores the desire of Florida Hospital to partner with innovative companies that share our goal of transforming healthcare through improved patient outcomes while driving down the cost of care,” said Janis Moysey, director of alliance innovation & development, Florida Hospital. “We eagerly await the results of Phase I of this collaboration using dual-source CT technology to enable optimized, lower-cost cardiovascular care for our customers.”
