Surgical Information Systems (SIS), based in Atlanta, Ga., announced a partnership with Siemens Healthcare (Malvern, Pa.) expanding the reach of the Siemens health information system portfolio (including Soarian, INVISION and MedSeries4) into the perioperative environment, including the SIS Anesthesia solution. With this agreement, SIS and Siemens address customers’ specialized needs for managing the complete perioperative workflow from pre-admission to discharge. Additionally, Siemens will leverage this partnership to supplement its portfolio with industry-validated solutions for anesthesia information management systems, which give the company improved access to a market segment that independent analysts indicate is primed for multi-billion dollar growth by the year 2017.

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