Virginia Hospital Center Signs With Siemens for Soarian Health Information Solution

by Barbara Kram , Editor
ARLINGTON, Va., MALVERN, Pa. - Virginia Hospital Center joins a growing number of medical facilities utilizing advanced information technologies (IT) to create efficiencies and orchestrate clinical best practices by signing an agreement with Siemens Medical Solutions to implement its workflow-engineered health information solution, Soarian.

The implementation of Soarian places Virginia Hospital Center at the forefront of the national movement toward utilizing advanced IT to build a nationwide health information infrastructure and supports its effort to receive Magnet Hospital designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). Soarian's unique workflow management tools will enable Virginia Hospital Center to re-engineer processes throughout the entire healthcare continuum to help drive organizational efficiencies, address patient safety initiatives and enhance clinical decision-making. By managing and synchronizing information across the entire enterprise, Soarian not only coordinates the complex processes of healthcare, it anticipates them by intuitively delivering information when and where it's needed most.

Siemens Med Administration Check™, which utilizes point-of-care barcode technology to seamlessly validate and document the medication administration process, will alert Virginia Hospital Center nurses immediately to allergic and drug interactions and potential errors. Additionally, Soarian Community Access will enable connectivity between physicians, hospital staff and patients through a secure Web-based application and messaging system.
