Siemens gets the educational show on the road
Siemens Medical Solutions this week commenced its multi-city educational road show titled "Community Connectivity: Healing Takes Time, Information Shouldn't" in Philadelphia.
The event highlighted the introduction of Siemens' Soarian Community Access, which connects a network of health partners including hospitals, independent physician practices, payers, labs, pharmacists, medical office/billing staff, physicians, and patients - creating a secure, online regional healthcare exchange.
Speakers at the event discussed current initiatives and successes in connecting communities for better health and standardizing the electronic health record, including a focus on the emerging technologies and barriers encountered on the road to success, Siemens said. The show also outlined strategies to consider for securing grant opportunities and funding technology initiatives as well as implementation roadmaps for successful outcomes for the hospital, medical practice, and the entire community, Siemens said.
The next stop for the road show will be in Dallas, Texas, at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society annual conference, Feb. 13-17.
