ATLANTA, Feb. 26 During HIMSS 2010 in Atlanta, Georgia, Surgical Information Systems (SIS) will highlight ways in which healthcare organizations can drive improved profitability, operational efficiency, patient safety and quality of care. The success of the perioperative department has never been more important than in the current economic climate. With the OR contributing up to 60% of overall hospital revenue, 35-40% of overall expense and up to 50% of all hospital-based errors, healthcare institutions are seeking partners who can provide highly interoperable and proven systems to drive financial, clinical and operational success in the financial engine of the hospital. The current state of healthcare demands expertise in the perioperative arena - and SIS is the only company dedicated exclusively to solving these challenges.
