Date:7/9/2008

Forty-five day OnBase deployment critical in electronic health record

project to benefit patients

CLEVELAND, July 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Hyland Software, developer of the OnBase(R) enterprise document management software suite, announced that SSM Health Care has experienced immediate results since the deployment of OnBase in March. Based in St. Louis, Missouri and offering services in four states, SSM is a forward-thinking health care provider to patients regardless of their ability to pay.

As a core component of SSM's electronic health record (EHR) project, OnBase already has made physicians more efficient, allowing each physician to see approximately three more patients on a daily basis. OnBase gives physicians access to the most up-to-date medical records and supporting documentation making patient information such as medication requirements or previous illnesses more accurate and physicians more effective.

Because the implementation date was set with a strict deadline of March 30, 2008, SSM had to find a solution that was both flexible and scalable. With OnBase's capability to be implemented in phases while also integrating with EPIC, Microsoft(R) SharePoint(R) and SAP(R), SSM was able to reach the deadline while staying within budget.

"We saw a need for a system to grow and scale with us while also being able to move outside of scope of the electronic health record," related Chris Bullerdick, IT Director at SSM Health Care. "As a partnership, Hyland Software worked with us to go-live with OnBase in 45 days in the first hospital and will eventually scale OnBase across more than 5,000 physicians in our system."

Bullerdick continued saying, "With such a variety of users within our 25,000 plus employees, the integrations with SharePoint and SAP make OnBase the complete solution for our ultimate goal of accomplishing patient safety."

"SSM is a prime example of a healthcare system that understands the importance of technology as it relates to patient care and quality," according to Tim Tegeder, Director of Healthcare Solutions at Hyland Software. "Our collaboration with SSM to create an integrated solution that also worked within the timetable of the EHR initiative has allowed the provider to increase their already strong focus on the patient."
