Surgical Information Systems Selected by BJC HealthCare to Improve Surgical Business Operations

ATLANTA --(Business Wire)-- Sept. 29, 2005 -- One of the largest nonprofit health-care organizations in the United States, BJC HealthCare, has partnered with Alpharetta-based Surgical Information Systems (SIS) to improve operational efficiency, patient safety, quality of care and financial outcomes at three of its facilities.

Christian Hospital Northeast, Missouri Baptist Medical Center and Progress West Healthcare Center, all located in Missouri, selected SIS to provide increased accuracy of clinical documentation and improved business effectiveness in the surgery department. Critical to the success of BJC is having proactive business intelligence that SIS will provide with the implementation of Power Metrics, the latest analytics tool from SIS, designed specifically for the business of surgery. Power Metrics transforms clinical and business data into visual and actionable information.

Scott L'Heureux, SIS President and COO, said, "We're working with BJC to achieve some of their most strategic objectives." He added, "This is a prime example of how important it is for hospitals to choose a solution that provides both the business and clinical functionality they need, from a vendor with proven experience in technology implementation and integration."

Surgical Information Systems (SIS) provides automated intelligence across the entire perioperative continuum, empowering hospitals to enhance patient care and business operations. SIS centralizes and unites all administrative and clinical information on a single database, single architecture platform, delivering fast, accurate and comprehensive information precisely when it is needed most - at the scheduling desk, point-of-care, O.R. control center, surgeon's office, with materials management, and in the executive boardroom. Surgical Information Systems holds strategic partnerships with both Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) and Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL) Corporations. For more information, visit
