Siemens unveils new release of its Invision health information system

Siemens Healthcare Deutschland : 04 December, 2007  (New Product)
Siemens Medical Solutions has announced the release of Invision 27, one of Siemens health information systems.
The newest version, Invision 27, contains platform, database and application upgrades that will further assist healthcare organizations in streamlining crucial information across clinical, financial, and administrative functions throughout their enterprises.

Invision 27 contains enhanced features that focus on supporting customers in their Patient safety initiatives, with the most prominent being allergy enhancements. With this version, customers will migrate to the new Drug Allergy Module (DAM) from First DataBank (FDB).

The new module provides additional allergen information designed to improve clinical checking. For example, allergy codes have a new structure based on drug names, groups, and ingredients. The allergy data can be interfaced to various systems including Siemens Pharmacy and Soarian Clinicals to support the foundation for the electronic health record. In order to support the new drug allergy codes and future regulatory and functional enhancements, Siemens has performed its largest platform upgrade ever.

'We are dedicated to helping all of our customers improve the quality of their healthcare delivery, while driving down costs associated with many clinical, financial and administrative tasks,' explains Janet Dillione, president, Health Services, the Healthcare IT Division of Siemens Medical Solutions. 'Making a significant investment in enhancing our Invision platform, which is one of the most widely deployed systems in the USA, was a top priority for us, as we remain committed to supporting all customers across our multiple product lines in delivering the best level of patient care.'

Denver Health and Hospital Authority, a healthcare system consisting of a 500-bed main hospital, a 911 medical response system, a network of family and school-based health centres, public health resources, and a Level I Trauma Centre, has been a Siemens customer since 1996 and was recently upgraded to Invision 27.

'The upgrade was nearly flawless and the support we received from our partners at Siemens was outstanding,' stated Gregory Veltri, chief information officer, Denver Health. 'Siemens finished ahead of schedule and actually caught us in the middle of completing maintenance on gateways. The feedback we received from our staff members and physicians after the upgrade was all positive.'
