Lancaster General, OSF HealthCare and Seattle Children's Hospital among the latest to select the award-winning document management software suite
CLEVELAND, Feb. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Healthcare organizations preach preventative care. Eat right. Exercise. Live a healthy lifestyle. Now, hospitals and health systems are recognizing the need to practice what they've been preaching. Paper medical records cause costly errors, potentially compromising patient care. And paper claims processing costs twice as much as electronic claims processing. Automating these processes in an electronic environment is preventative care for the pains plaguing today's healthcare organizations. As a remedy, three healthcare organizations have selected the OnBase document management solution.
"Healthcare organizations are under tremendous pressure to provide the best possible patient care," said Tim Tegeder, director of healthcare solutions for Hyland Software. "But they're being forced to do it with ever-tightening budgets. Our solution cost-effectively unites all the different types of content, from every step of the revenue and patient clinical care cycles, providing a single view of the patient record. Patient care and safety improve because providers have the most up-to-date and complete electronic medical record (EMR) immediately available, while cash flow increases because both the provider and the coder can view a document concurrently, reducing delays in the revenue cycle. It's amazing how much more can be done when data is simultaneously accessible to the right people, at the right time across the enterprise."
