PANAMA CITY, FL--(Marketwire - Aug 16, 2012) - iSirona®, a provider of simplified solutions for medical device integration, today announced that Samaritan Health Services has signed an agreement to implement iSirona's device connectivity software. Located in Oregon's mid-Willamette Valley and central coast, Samaritan Health Services will leverage iSirona's flexible software-based technology to deliver quality patient data into its Epic EMR.
iSirona's connectivity solution, which can connect virtually any medical device to the electronic medical record, will offer clinicians at Samaritan Health Services access to accurate, timely patient data. Rather than transcribing and hand-keying patient data -- which is time-consuming and often leads to errors -- healthcare providers can spend more time caring for patients. In addition, iSirona's software-based solution eliminates the need to purchase expensive single-use hardware, so Samaritan Health Services can better leverage its existing hardware and technology investments.
"We applaud Samaritan's commitment to device integration and are pleased that they will soon experience the widespread benefits of connectivity," says iSirona CEO Dave Dyell.
