With the partnership, SIS and Siemens Healthcare expand the reach of the Siemens health information system portfolio (including Soarian, INVISION and MedSeries4) into the perioperative environment, including the SIS Anesthesia solution.

The solution will enable bi-directional sharing of pre-, intra- and post-operative procedure assessments, an electronic anesthesia record, forms, and data between Soarian and SIS.

Operating room quality data can be extracted from the SIS OR Solution, and measured and reported in Siemens systems, to support enterprise reporting requirements such as meaningful use criteria.

Furthermore, continuum of care data will be made available through SIS Analytics to advance departmental initiatives including the Surgical Care Improvement Project (SCIP), anesthesia reporting, and overall clinical, financial and operational initiatives.

Siemens Healthcare Health Services Business Unit CEO John Glaser said the collaboration extends Soarian’s proven workflow benefits to the perioperative service line and connects operating room clinicians, administrators, and processes with the enterprise, while providing interoperability with the patient record.
