Why opt for the Siemens Healthineers Digital Ecosystem?
to smart health
Harnessing the power of digital
Digitalization in healthcare holds great promise. It has the potential to keep people out of an in-patient environment and direct patients in acute settings into the right care pathway more efficiently. It can help to benchmark performance, steer diagnosis and treatment more precisely, establish best practices faster – and much more.
By drawing on the power of digitalization, many of today's healthcare challenges can be overcome, allowing providers to save resources and enjoy better outcomes.
Siemens Healthineers has built a wide presence in daily healthcare provision, with one of the largest sets of healthcare data. From this vantage point, we are now introducing an open and secure environment. This environment allows healthcare providers to tap into the potential of digitalization through fast and easy access1 to smart health.
A growing ecosystem for smart health
Putting this environment in place is an evolving process. Its goal is to connect the technical, intellectual and business capabilities of a growing network of providers, payors, patients and partners. Integrating and interconnecting data, participants, applications, and services are key goals of the Siemens Healthineers Digital Ecosystem2. The growing data lake is intended to support the development of cloud-deployed and locally installed applications and services. As a result, our Ecosystem will serve the wide spectrum of clinical, operational, and financial tasks and functions in healthcare delivery.
Membership of the Siemens Healthineers Digital Ecosystem shall allow participants to accomplish their tasks with actionable insights and support for decision-making and to enable them to grow their business together with us.
We are starting with an attractive selection of applications and services – developed in-house and by partners – which will be available soon in our online store. All have been chosen based on our long-term industry expertise, pooling the knowledge and innovation power of our vast network of global software developers.
Access and utilization of these offerings will be fast and easy using our store3. The store is intended to offer state-of-the-art selection and testing capabilities for users and support healthcare institutions to efficiently purchase and deploy smart health offerings in their setting – locally installed or through secure cloud-deployment.
As we move forward, the spectrum of members' data, capabilities, digital offerings and access points to our ecosystem keeps growing – allowing you to harness the power of smart health.
Get more out of your Siemens Healthineers devices
The wealth of on-premise clinical and operational applications offered in connection with our medical devices help you to maximize the utilization of your systems. For example, they support post-processing of medical imaging from routine to complex cases, or workflow management for laboratory operations.
Boost your performance management
With our first cloud-based applications in teamplay4, we help you to access clinical and operational benchmarks for your imaging fleet. By connecting medical institutions and their imaging devices, teamplay apps aspire to create the biggest radiology and cardiology team in the world and provide its members with tools to tackle big data and the challenges of increasing cost pressure.
This allows you to identify performance gaps within your institution and compare with others. Using the power of data, we continuously expand our cloud-based application range through our own development activities. In addition, cloud-enabled applications of Siemens Healthineers partners are enabled to be available in our store3 soon.
Establish population health
Gaps in care and a growing high-risk population can lead to problematic and costly situations for healthcare systems and integrated delivery networks. Our integrated IBM Watson applications and Siemens Healthineers teamplay help you to improve the quality of your care and operations. Built-in protocols help identify care gaps, allow you to customize direct patient communications and utilize available diagnostic devices most effectively. Patients are encouraged to engage, so they can choose facilities and appointments most suited to them and are thus more likely to cooperate, leading to better population health.
A HIPAA5 compliant, cloud-based analytics platform works with aggregated data to connect different stakeholders for cohesive, community-based care management. At the same time, it enables standardization of care, benchmarking, data sharing, and quality reporting – both internally and externally. Our consultants will work with you to identify your pain points and individually adjust the Digital Ecosystem to your specific needs.
Manage point-of-care diagnostics
We offer open, robust point-of-care informatics solutions that allow you to connect more than 160 types of POC devices. It is a scalable system that grows with your changing requirements. POC Informatics solutions enable healthcare providers worldwide to manage the complete POCT process across the healthcare continuum.
What’s more, the solution is open and vendor-neutral, allowing you to choose the testing devices that work best for you. These are simplified, streamlined solutions that save time and money: your environment, your choice – always.
Connect your EMRs
Our Ecosystem enables you to achieve interoperability of EMRs, which in turn allows for central storage of patient-related data. Scattered, hidden records with value lost in the system will be a thing of the past. With our integrated eHealth Solutions you can set up one central data exchange platform and securely access patient data, independent of the institution of treatment.
Discuss with peers
Making the most of the virtual electronic medical record for each patient, peers can easily share and access patient data from anywhere in the world, regardless of the institution of treatment.
This allows for highly effective communication between different providers; available date can be fully employed and with the dots clearly connected inside our ecosystem, peers can discuss the most relevant course of action for each individual patient – easily and conveniently.
