Siemens Wins $25.2M HIT Contract

Siemens Healthcare has received a $25.2 million contract to provide health IT (HIT) software and a HIT network, for the Gauteng Department of Health (DoH), in South Africa. They will also install some radiology information systems.

Siemens will help the Gauteng DoH with their goal of implementing electronic health records that reduce and eventually eliminate the need for paper medical records. The company will install the Sorian MedSuite program which is designed to manage the clinical, financial, and administrative processes.

“A primary benefit of the Siemens hospital information system is that once a patient’s details have been captured and stored, they can be shared across the hospital’s departments as well as with other hospitals and clinics in the region, ” commented CEO of Siemens Healthcare in South Africa, Graham Maritz. “Once in place within the hospital network, Soarian MedSuite will help optimize processes such as registration, admissions, discharge, billing, medical records management and enterprise-wide multi-resource scheduling.”
