Siemens, Touro Infirmary Sign IT Managed Services Solution Agreement

Feb. 15, 2007 - Siemens Medical Solutions and the Touro Infirmary of New Orleans have signed a strategic agreement through which Siemens will provide the Touro Infirmary with a long-term information technology (IT) managed services solution. The solution includes the management of Touro's complete IT operations and the implementation of Siemens Med Administration Check solution.

Siemens will work with Touro to create operational and financial efficiencies, helping to maximize its investment in IT resources and achieve its strategic business objectives. As a result of the expanded relationship, Touro and Siemens employees will work collaboratively to deliver advanced IT solutions designed to meet the
organization's needs.

Med Administration Check closes the loop on the medication use process by automatically validating and documenting medication administration using bar code technology to help confirm the "six rights" of administration: right patient, right drug, right time, right dose, right route and right documentation. Medication
administration details are captured in real-time at the point-of-care and automatically documented in the patient's electronic health record. Siemens Med Administration Check enables clinical decision-making and accurate patient billing. Clinical checks performed during administration help the care team ascertain allergic, drug-lab, or drug-drug interactions.
