Virginia Dept. Of Behavioral Health & Developmental Services Selects Siemens Soarian

Today, Siemens Healthcare announced that the company will provide the Soarian enterprise electronic health record (EHR) to the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS), Richmond, Va., a non-acute, specialty care provider. The purchase delivers Soarian functionality across 14 facilities, replacing a disparate array of healthcare IT solutions and semi-manual paper-centric processes for orders. The decision was based on Soarian's adaptable, workflow-driven architecture; the ability for Siemens MobileMD Health Information Exchange (HIE) to help providers access mental health records, securely, among different care settings such as the hospital or their main practice locations; and by the potential to influence population health management with Healthcare Intelligence, a new solution from Siemens that collects both clinical and financial data as well as structured and unstructured data for analysis. As part of Agenda 2013, a two-year global initiative in the Siemens Healthcare Sector, the company is identifying new ways to address the unique needs of customers in a variety of settings.

“Soarian allows us to document and manage information in a way that can improve the safety and effectiveness of treatment,” said Jack Barber, MD, Chief Medical Officer. “Our providers appreciated the streamlined capabilities to not only view and document patient care but to manage a longitudinal interdisciplinary treatment plan across departments and settings.”

The Virginia DBHDS purchased a comprehensive suite of Soarian Clinicals, Soarian Financials, Healthcare Intelligence, Siemens Pharmacy and Med Administration Check™, and Siemens MobileMD HIE. Pilot implementations are planned for mid 2013 at three sites: Western State Hospital and Commonwealth Center for Children & Adolescents in Staunton, and Eastern State Hospital in Williamsburg, Va. Siemens has selected Quammen Healthcare Consultants, Murfreesboro, Tenn., to lead the implementation efforts.

“Our clinical leadership and staff were closely involved throughout the entire vendor/product selection process,” said Russell Sarbora, CIO, Virginia DBHDS. “Siemens heard our need and responded in a manner that engendered confidence in both the company and its solution suite.”
