Faith Regional Health Services, Norfolk, Nebraska, has signed a 10-year, $13 million deal to migrate to Soarian, the latest hospital information system from Siemens. The agreement is part of a patient safety initiative at Faith Regional, which has been using other Siemens systems. The hospital hopes to have all of its physicians utilizing computerized physician order entry in conjunction with the opening of its new patient bed tower this year. To achieve support the move to CPOE--a major component of the proposed meaningful use criteria of electronic health records--the hospital will install various Soarian components, including clinical documentation, critical care, and quality measurements. The hospital’s Emergency Department will use Soarian as well.  Faith Regional’s renewal agreement includes remote IT hosting support from Siemens.
