Three healthcare organizations — H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center, Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital Medical Center and Franklin Medical Center — are installing hospital information systems from Malvern, Pa.-based Siemens’ Soarian.

Moffitt Cancer Center, a 162-bed facility based in Tampa, Fla., is deploying Soarian Financials, in an effort to integrate the Enterprise Master Patient Index, Patient Access, and Patient Accounting into one system. Through the implementation, the facility hopes to capture data early in the revenue cycle to minimize its dependency on third-party claims systems, the company says.

The 341-bed acute care Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital Medical Center in Plattsburg, N.Y., is implementing Soarian Clinicals, Soarian Emergency Department, and Soarian Device Connect.

Franklin Medical Center, a Winnsboro, La.-based community facility, is rolling out MedSeries4 General Financials, Patient Accounting, and Soarian Clinicals. According to Siemens, MedSeries4 is a Web-based system designed for community hospital needs.
