Siemens Healthcare has announced that their longstanding customer, Faith Regional Health Services, has signed a new multi-year deal to begin migrating to Soarian, Siemens’ latest Healthcare Information System. Denver Health and Wentworth-Douglass Hospital, two other Siemens customers, also have recently launched additional Soarian applications as part of their construction of an electronic health record.

Faith Regional Health Services aims to have all of its physicians utilizing computerized physician order entry in conjunction with the opening of its new patient bed tower in spring 2010, in order to fulfill a major component of the proposed meaningful use of EHRs under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Siemens reports other significant milestones achieved for other providers adopting the Soarian System. Denver Health, a Siemens health IT customer since 1996, went fully live with Soarian Clinicals in December 2009, and have other Soarian products scheduled to launch shortly. The Dover, N.H.-based Wentworth-Douglass Hospital marked the completion of their Phase 1 Soarian migration strategy in October of 2009.
