Riverside Walter Reed Hospital in Gloucester, Va., recently went live with Siemens Medical Solutions' next-generation Soarian Clinical Access and Soarian Common Clinicals.
The hospital is deploying two clinical modules throughout the entire hospital simultaneously. The combined implementation took less than six months to complete.
Riverside's Soarian implementation is part of the organization's strategic IT plan, centered on delivering the information tools to support Riverside clinicians and provide the highest quality care to patients.
Riverside said some of the benefits of Soarian's smart user interface already are becoming apparent. The nursing staff has found that the logical organization and intuitive icons of the user interface helped cut training time in half. Patient data is posted in one location that is available to all clinicians, resulting in a reduction of duplicate work.
