Holy Redeemer Health System (Meadowbrook, Pa.) and

Riverside Health System (Newport News, Va.) have successfully implemented Malvern, Pa.-based

Siemens Healthcare’s Soarian CPOE system.

Holy Redeemer was the first Siemens CPOE customer to migrate from the legacy system, Siemens Invision, to Soarian. The company says physicians at the 244-bed facility were placing 75 percent of all orders electronically within the first week.

At Riverside Health System, a 904-bed, five-hospital network, Soarian CPOE was rolled out to hospitalists at its Riverside Regional Medical Center. Within four weeks of the initial launch, physicians were placing 30 percent of all orders electronically. Siemens says the organization plans to extend CPOE to a second facility, Riverside Tappahannock.

Both Holy Redeemer and Riverside integrated Soarian CPOE with its existing Siemens solutions, including Soarian Enterprise Document Management, Soarian Clinicals, Siemens Pharmacy, and Medication Administration Check, it says.
