The hospital was looking for a solution that would provide workflow technology to help streamline the patient care process across the enterprise, including physician offices, outpatient and inpatient settings. The deal builds on previously installed Siemens components such as Siemens Pharmacy/Med Administration Check™ (MAK), NOVIUS® Lab, and syngo® Workflow. T.J. Samson will also completely automate the health IT solution in Siemens private, medical-grade cloud. They will tap Siemens to completely manage all aspects of the deployment through the company's Managed Services IT Outsourcing business.

"Our health system is exploring new opportunities to improve the way we deliver care to the people of Glasgow, Kentucky, which includes a combination of architectural and service-line redesign," said Bill Kindred, CEO, T.J. Samson Community Hospital. "This redesign is expected to help us improve the patient experience because our new pavilion will provide a holistic approach to care. We expect to have a similar experience with our EHR rollout. Siemens is a partner who has the agility and expertise to ensure that our health IT is well-managed, which allows us to keep our focus on helping physicians adopt these technologies and ensuring that they are doing so in a meaningful way that provides the greatest patient benefit."

Finally, two Missouri hospitals that would ordinarily find themselves in a competitive position have recently connected to deliver a coordinated electronic health record solution to area providers. Recognizing the value of migrating to enterprise health IT, Southeast Hospital, Cape Girardeau, Mo., a 280-bed acute-care facility that is part of Southeast HEALTH, and Missouri Delta Medical Center, a 162-bed not-for-profit corporation based in Sikeston, Mo., recently purchased a Soarian enterprise suite including Soarian Clinicals, Soarian EDM/HIM, Siemens Pharmacy, MAK, NOVIUS Lab, Soarian Quality Measures and syngo Workflow.

"This move may be perceived as unconventional by some, but we believe that it supports our goal of providing competent, compassionate and cost efficient care, in a way that promotes sustainable growth for the medical center and affordable care for patients," said Jason Schrumpf, CEO, Missouri Delta Medical Center. "We were engaged in a lengthy investigation of four EHR systems, and Siemens Soarian became the right solution for this endeavor because of the strength of its clinical offering, aggressive implementation timeline and Siemens collaborative pricing structure."
