Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children (TSRHC), a Dallas-based pediatric center for the treatment of orthopedic conditions, has selected Siemens Medical Solutions'MedSeries4 health information system (HIS), in an effort to support rural and community healthcare providers with IT adoption efforts.

According to Siemens, MedSeries4 is designed to deliver Web-based workflow for clinicians, while enabling access to patient information for physicians and staff. In addition, the clinical applications will lay the groundwork for computerized physician order entry (CPOE) and an electronic health record (EHR), says the New York-based company.

The Siemens IT systems to be installed for these solutions include MedSeries4, NOVIUSLab, Siemens Pharmacy, syngo Workflow, Enterprise Document Management and Siemens OPENLink.
