MedCentral Health System (Mansfield, Ohio) launched Malvern, Pa.-based Siemens knowledge-driven healthcare data-mining tool, Soarian Quality Measures.

According to the company, the application will help MedCentral streamline its quality improvement process by automating chart abstraction and helping expedite the submission of quality measures. Soarian Quality Measures replaces manual chart reviews with accurate and automated chart abstraction of quality measures, says the company. It analyzes and draws conclusions from all available electronic patient data from both Siemens and non-Siemens IT systems, and the results of the analysis are presented in a simple, intuitive interface, it touts.

MedCentral Health System is an independent, not-for-profit organization comprised of two general, acute care hospitals: Mansfield and Shelby, with a combined total of 351 beds and 44 bassinets. The system offers complete cardiac care, comprehensive neurological services, a walk-in medical center, industrial health and safety services and the MedCentral College of Nursing.
