The Invision health information system is now generally available, which contains platform, database and application upgrades to assist in streamlining information across clinical, financial and administrative functions.
The new Invision 27 has enhanced features focused on supporting customers in their patient safety initiatives, with the most prominent being allergy enhancements. With this version, Siemens says customers can migrate to the new Drug Allergy Module (DAM) from First DataBank (FDB). This new module provides additional allergen information designed to improve clinical checking. For example, allergy codes have a new structure based on drug names, groups and ingredients. The allergy data can be interfaced to various systems, including Siemens Pharmacy and Soarian Clinicals, to support the foundation for the electronic health record.
In order to support the new drug allergy codes and future regulatory and functional enhancements, Siemens
said it has performed its largest platform upgrade.
