Siemens signs Simeks as Soarian reseller
Siemens Healthcare has entered into a value-added reseller agreement with Turkish healthcare solutions company, Simeks Tibbi Sistemler Sanayi ve Ticaret Anonim Sirketi, to sell Soarian MedSuite, Siemens' hospital information system.

Simeks has been specifically licensed to sell MedSuite HIS software licenses, services, and support plans to healthcare providers in Turkey, Siemens said.

"Siemens selected Simeks for its strong understanding of the Turkish healthcare IT market, and believes it will prove strategic to Siemens' channel-selling approach in Turkey," said Bernt Klein, senior vice president worldwide strategy, health services sales and marketing for Siemens. "The new agreement extends Siemens' ability to reach private and public acute care facilities in that region seeking an integrated HIS that delivers administrative, clinical, and financial solutions to help them achieve their most important healthcare goals."

Soarian MedSuite is currently live at healthcare facilities in Mexico, Turkey, South Africa and The United Arab Emirates, and is scheduled to launch at multiple sites in Egypt and Lithuania over the next several months, the company said.
