New Technology Improves Document Capture, Streamlines Health Records Documentation
Dallas, TX (Vocus) March 24, 2009 -- iMedica Corporation, a leading developer of healthcare software solutions for physician practices, today announced a technology partnership with Imagetek, a national leader in enterprise content management and business process automation, to strengthen the capture of paper-based documents and ease the transition to the paperless physician practice.
Together, Imagetek and iMedica have created a solution that provides clinicians with easy and reliable access to patient records, including legacy paper documents, through the Inofile interface. Hosted within the Fujitsu fi-6010N iScanner, Inofile's convenient touch-and-go feature allows clinicians to automatically scan and store documents in the correct location within iMedica's Patient Relationship Manager™ (PRM), a single-application electronic medical record (EMR) and practice management (PM) solution that utilizes Microsoft's latest .NET technology.
"Joining forces with iMedica has allowed us to leverage the amazing technology of Inofile, that is essential for the healthcare industry," said Dane Meuler, Vice President of Business Development at Imagetek. "This integration has enabled us to make a seamless records management solution that gives users a more efficient means of completing the transition to a paperless office."
Using the advanced features of the Fujitsu fi-6010N iScanner, hospitals, physician offices and medical clinics can easily scan paper-based documents, capture the documents in digital formats and provide healthcare professionals with instant accessibility. EMR/EHR's incorporate built-in health maintenance reminders, messaging and tasking tools and a patient portal, as well as important elements such as portability, off-site back-up and interoperability.
"Partnering with Imagetek has enabled iMedica to reinforce our core value of providing effective electronic health record (EHR) and practice management solutions for our customers," said Michael Nissenbaum, President and CEO of iMedica. "The rich features Imagetek offers for providing enterprise content management combined with the capture functionality of the fi-6010N iScanner by Fujitsu provides an efficient management of important patient documents within the iMedica EMR and PRM software suite."
"This is exactly what our engineers envisioned when they created the fi-6010N iScanner," said Douglas Rudolph, Vice President of Product Management and Business Development at Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc. "In this fast-paced industry, healthcare documentation can be very work intensive. So it is necessary to give physicians something simple and easy to use when managing their practice. The Fujitsu iScanner and Inofile technologies have been designed to deliver on all accounts."
