Chicago – February 20, 2012 – The Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) recently reviewed Surgical Information Systems (SIS) using the Peer Review Process. After undergoing the rigorous review SIS Analytics has been granted the “Peer Reviewed by HFMA®” designation.
SIS Analytics is an easy-to-deploy, easy-to-use, perioperative business analytics solution that turns valuable data from a hospital’s OR into on-demand, actionable information.

“Successful ORs are key drivers of the overall financial health of hospitals,” says SIS CEO Ed Daihl. “SIS Analytics supports hospitals’ goals to improve productivity, financial performance, and care quality by making information more useable with role-based perioperative views that display data in graphical ways that can be consumed and acted upon. The HFMA’s strenuous Peer-Reviewed process validates SIS Analytics’ ability to unlock the data needed to manage and optimize this important area of the hospital.”
