University Hospitals, a six-hospital network based in Cleveland, has implemented

Siemens Healthcare’s (Malvern, Pa.) Soarian Financials at its University Hospitals Case Medical Center facility, becoming the first academic medical center in the country to go live on the Web-based revenue cycle solution.


An integrated, enterprise revenue cycle solution, Soarian Financials includes a contract engine, an enterprise-wide master person index, a claims engine, and denial management into a revenue cycle solution.

University Hospitals also went live on Soarian Scheduling, which can help staff more effectively manage the complexity of the scheduling process and reduce delays and waste, says the company. The roll-out completes University Hospitals’ migration of its hospital facilities to Soarian Financials and marks the sixth facility to deploy solutions from the Soarian Health Information System portfolio.

The 1,032-bed University Hospitals network includes a major academic medical center, community hospitals, outpatient health centers, outpatient surgery centers, urgent care centers, cancer centers, rehabilitation facilities, pediatric specialty centers and mental health facilities. Its flagship medical center, University Hospitals Case Medical Center, is the primary teaching affiliate of Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine.
