The first patient won't enter the Heart Center of Indiana until December, but revenues are already rolling in for the center's new partner, Siemens Medical Solutions. The $60 million all-digital specialty heart hospital has signed a 10-year agreement with Siemens to outfit it with cardiology solutions, including state-of-the-art imaging, patient monitoring equipment, and information technology. Siemens will also provide business office and computer support services, as well as the hospital's telecommunications network. The company will make the hospital's patient records and diagnostic images available to doctors through its Soarian Cardiology IT, which is designed to manage the clinical, financial, and operational workflow challenges of the cardiac care team to provide more efficient and effective patient services.
