Siemens brings cutting-edge IT to Middle East healthcare systems

Published January 28th, 2007 - 12:53 GMT

The Near and Middle East is the first region where Soarian® MedSuite 4.0 is now available.  Soarian MedSuite offers healthcare organisations an integrated HIS (Hospital Information System) that helps users manage administrative, clinical, and financial processes and drive towards increased efficiency, productivity, and quality of care across the healthcare continuum – easily and affordably.  The highly scalable system will be on show at Arab Health 2007 in Dubai.

“The integration of clinical, financial performance and operations information through a single unified platform makes Soarian MedSuite essential for assisting with improved patient care and overall hospital efficiency,” said Maurice Faber Director of Siemens Medical Solutions, Near and Middle East Headquarters.  “Siemens has accumulated vast experience in deploying new healthcare technologies in more than 30 countries.  Leveraging this knowledge, Soarian MedSuite offers a critical tool for healthcare organisations in the Near and Middle East and beyond.”

Deployable at single- or multi-entity provider sites, Soarian MedSuite supports complex work processes across acute and ambulatory settings and provides closer ties to specialised units and physicians.  The solution yields immediate access to patient data across the spectrum of care.  Soarian MedSuite can help organisations achieve the following key benefits:

• Quality of care improvements through seamless access to text and clinical information.
• Optimised patient flow with enterprise-wide access to complete patient record and decision support tools.
• Improved revenue capture through tools that address robust claim generation and management of receivables to expedite payment.

Soarian MedSuite’s adaptable, service-oriented architecture is based on a secure, open platform that can be standards-based, easily integrated, and leverages widely accepted technologies.  The system supports improved efficiency and productivity by providing tools that support control of critical business processes from patient registration to discharge.  Advanced multi-resource scheduling tools help organisations maximise the use of dedicated and shared resources, leading to improved coordination and communication, and optimised patient and material flow.  Built-in and customisable reports are available as well as comprehensive traceability of medical information across all episodes of care.

Siemens can be found at Arab Health 2007, Hall 3, stand A20.
