Alamance Regional Medical Center Selects SIS Perioperative Solution

Burlington, NC, August 02, 2007 --( Alamance Regional Medical Center (ARMC) has selected SIS (Surgical Information Systems), provider of the Eclipsys Sunrise Surgery™ solution, to enhance its perioperative systems.

ARMC CIO Jesse Long said that the hospital chose SIS’ perioperative solution because of its functionality, ease-of-use, and easy integration with Eclipsys’ Sunrise Clinical Manager. “Alamance Regional Medical Center prides itself on the use of state-of-the-art technology and high attention to patient safety, and we expect the implementation of the SIS system will meet the needs of both our OR staff and our patients,” Long said. “When we looked to replace our perioperative system, SIS’ comprehensive functionality and improved clinician workflow facilitated by the proven integration with Eclipsys made SIS the clear choice.”

A not-for-profit community healthcare organization, ARMC is committed to improving the health of the citizens of Alamance County and its surrounding communities in North Carolina through the provision of a continuum of high quality clinical, educational, preventive-wellness, and support services in a safe and friendly environment. Its comprehensive services touch the lives of more than 200,000 people in the Alamance-Caswell area each year, and it was recently ranked in the top 10 percent of more than 900 hospitals nationwide for patient satisfaction. In 2006 ARMC was honored with the Premier Award for Quality, signifying it as one of the nation’s best hospitals for treating heart attacks.

“We at SIS are excited to provide our OR solution to ARMC, helping them maintain outstanding patient care and operational efficiency,” said SIS CEO Ed Daihl. “This is a great opportunity to showcase our system’s unsurpassed integration capabilities – hospitals don’t need to sacrifice functionality to implement a best-of-breed solution in their OR.”
