Prisma Health partners with Siemens Healthineers to innovate SC healthcare
Value Partnership overview
Prisma Health and Siemens Healthineers have launched a 10-year strategic relationship to help create a better state of health for South Carolina. This Value Partnership is focused on healthcare innovation, workforce development, and improving healthcare for patients and communities served by Prisma Health.
Through this relationship, Siemens Healthineers and Prisma Health will:
- Deploy the latest generation of medical technology at all Prisma Health sites
- Collaborate to improve the delivery of clinical services
- Form an Intelligence Insights Center with the goal of advancing healthcare
“As the healthcare industry continues to move further towards value-based healthcare, in which health systems are paid by how healthy they keep a population instead of by procedure, our Value Partnership will bring new opportunities to improve clinical care pathways by increasing consistency in delivering care and by reducing time consuming operational tasks.”
Mark O’Halla, President and Chief Executive Officer of Prisma Health
Intelligence Insights Center
The primary goal of the Center is to further enable Prisma Health to leverage de-identified patient data via computerized algorithms, also known as artificial intelligence (AI), to enable physicians to make more informed clinical decisions – ultimately allowing for faster and more precise diagnoses and treatment plans – as well as to help predict or prevent disease. The deployment of innovative solutions in conjunction with related research initiatives aim to forge new ground in patient care, while simultaneously measuring the value of diagnostic testing, care and treatments.
A second initiative will evaluate the potential of computer-aided workflow tools to increase best practices of care and reduce time-consuming operational tasks, allowing providers to spend more time in patient interactions.
Both the Center’s work and the new technologies will enable Prisma Health team members to increase their skills in an increasingly digitally sophisticated world.
In close collaboration with Prisma Health physicians, Siemens Healthineers will deploy the latest medical software and technology-enabled processes to continue to enhance clinical outcomes and operational efficiency at Prisma Health. Together, the organizations will strive to ensure that across its 21-county market area, Prisma Health will have access to the latest generation of medical equipment for the highest precision in imaging for diagnoses and surgical care.
