Siemens Healthcare and IBM reported that hospitals using Siemens’ MedSeries4, an information system designed for community hospitals, can now bundle server technology from IBM.

The new bundle will feature IBM's Power server, its BladeCenter Servers, Tivoli Storage Manager software and IBM System Storage DS3000 and DS4000 systems, according to the companies.
“The relationship between Siemens MedSeries4 and IBM’s full range of supporting technology is unique in today’s healthcare computing environment, where few hardware and software combinations are so well suited for each other,” said Marilyn Marchant, vice president of foundation enterprise systems at Siemens.

“As business partners whose healthcare industry collaboration goes back 30 years, we are confident that this collaboration will drive outcomes that improve our customers’ bottom lines, while further streamlining access to information and enhancing the overall patient experience,” Marchant said.
