UMass Memorial Health Care (Worcester, Mass.) and

Bethesda Healthcare System (Boynton Beach, Fla.) have inked multi-year contracts for Malvarn, Pa.-based

Siemens Healthcare’s Soarian information system.

The 1,111-bed UMass Memorial system is rolling out Soarian Clinicals, with the new Plan of Care functionality, Soarian Financials, and Soarian Quality Measures, a data-mining tool. Through the seven-year agreement, UMass Memorial looks to consolidate its revenue-cycle system, enhance patient-safety initiatives, and achieve quality improvement objectives, according to the company. UMass Memorial is a clinical partner of the University of Massachusetts Medical School and includes UMass Memorial Medical Center as well as four community hospitals: Clinton Hospital, HealthAlliance Hospital, Marlborough Hospital and Wing Memorial Hospital.

Bethesda extended its long-term relationship with Siemens Healthcare through a new contract that includes migration to Soarian Clinicals, Soarian Critical Care, Soarian Emergency Department, Patient Identification Check, and Soarian Quality Measures. The 401-bed, not-for-profit has served the South Florida area since 1959.
