Siemens Medical Solutions GSD GmbH, a wholly owned subsidiary of Siemens Healthcare, will take over the use and exploitation rights to the hospital information system (HIS) software i.s.h.med, previously held by T-Systems in Vienna, Austria. The transfer is subject to customary closing conditions.
I.s.h.med is a clinical information system that is integrated with standard healthcare SAP software. The solution was jointly developed by Siemens Medical Solutions GSD and T-Systems.
To further develop i.s.h.med, Siemens Healthcare plans to take over the product rights that currently belong to T-Systems Austria, a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom focused on sales, implementation and system integration of i.s.h.med.
In conjunction with the transfer of rights, 34 employees from the T-Systems development department will join Siemens Austria and, along with colleagues in development at Siemens Healthcare, for further development of the i.s.h.med HIS.
“With the transfer of the 50 percent joint copyright of i.s.h.med and the acquisition of the developers responsible for this hospital information system from T-Systems, the entire product development is consolidated in the hands of Siemens,” said Georg Obermeier, managing director of T-Systems.
