Christiana Care Health System turns to Siemens for new revenue cycle management solutions

Siemens Healthcare USA : 27 February, 2008  (New Product)
Christiana Care Health System, a 1,000-bed regional healthcare system located in Wilmington, Delaware, USA, has signed a deal with Siemens for Soarian Financials, Soarian Scheduling, Enterprise Document Management (EDM) and Siemens Decision Support Solutions.
One of the largest healthcare providers in the mid-Atlantic region, Christiana Care recognised an opportunity to improve its revenue cycle management initiatives with the help of innovative information technology solutions and felt Soarian was the best fit for its organization.

'As we looked to replace our legacy hospital-based and ambulatory registration, scheduling, and billing systems, our requirements focused on an enterprise-class system, built on next-generation architecture, that could help us streamline and integrate our processes and information flow much better and differently than today,' explained Steve Hess, vice president and chief information officer, Christiana Care. 'With Soarian, we believe we have the solution that will enable the operations within Christiana Care and patient access with Christiana Care to be more efficient and effective for all.'

Christiana Care chief financial officer, Tom Corrigan agreed, stating, 'After an exhaustive review of vendor applications that support registration, scheduling, and billing processes, we firmly believe that Siemens Soarian offers the greatest opportunity for Christiana Care to successfully transform our business operations.'

Siemens also closed deals with other healthcare organizations throughout the USA in recent months including:

- BryanLGH Health System, a 600-bed, not-for-profit, locally owned healthcare organization with three acute care facilities, several outpatient clinics, a college of Health Sciences and a state-of-the-art health and wellness facility located in Lincoln, Nebraska, USA, signed with Siemens for Soarian Financials and Soarian Clinicals;

- Riverside County Regional Medical Center, a 439-bed state-of-the-art tertiary care and level II adult and pediatric facility located in Moreno Valley, Califronia, USA, signed with Siemens for Soarian Financials, Soarian Scheduling, Soarian Health Information Management (HIM) and EDM, and Siemens Decision Support Solutions;

- Hamilton Medical Center, a 280-bed hospital located in Dalton, Georgia, USA, is a flagship affiliate of Hamilton Health Care System, signed with Siemens for Soarian Financials and Soarian Scheduling;

- Wentworth-Douglass Hospital, a 178-bed, acute care hospital located in Dover, New Hampshire, USA, signed with Siemens for Soarian Financials, Soarian Scheduling, Soarian HIM and EDM, and Soarian Clinicals.

'The momentum we've seen on the revenue cycle management side demonstrates the increasing need for innovative solutions that support the creation of optimised processes and increased efficiency,' stated Janet Dillione, chief executive officer, Health Services, Siemens Medical Solutions. 'Soarian helps to streamline access to financial information across the enterprise, allowing for stronger collaboration among care givers and staff members, and more efficient and informed decision making.'
