Siemens signs Partners to Soarian deal
Siemens Medical Solutions and Partners HealthCare of Boston said that Partners will implement Siemens’ Soarian Financials patient administration and revenue cycle management system across its healthcare enterprise. Soarian Financials is an information technology system designed to streamline revenue cycle management and help manage costs, according to the Malvern, Pa.-based Siemens.

Partners will install the full suite of financial applications, which includes Soarian scheduling; decision support solutions; enterprise document management; Soarian community access; and healthcare data exchange (HDX), Siemens’ payer connectivity service.

The agreement builds on the recent announcement between Siemens and Partners to advance the company’s Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) in healthcare information technology. The SOA initiative is to provide a capability to individually extend, reuse, and access software components that implement a business task or process, Siemens said.
