CLEVELAND, Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Healthcare organizations rely on their electronic medical record (EMR) to store patients' data and help physicians, nurses and medical staff to provide the best, most informed care. A huge problem comes when they realize the EMR system can't hold unstructured content – like paper, faxes, images and videos. In order to close the gap on missing information, healthcare providers need technology solutions that will incorporate unstructured data through a strong integration with their line of business systems, including EMRs and ERPs. Because Hyland Software has developed a seamless integration in its enterprise content management (ECM) solution, OnBase, and the Epic EMR, Stormont-Vail Healthcare has selected to fill the gaps in its EHR by integrating OnBase in its ambulatory department as phase one of its software deployment.
Stormont-Vail Healthcare, a 586-bed acute care hospital recognized as a Magnet™ organization by American Nurses Credentialing Center, is dedicated to providing top-level care to Kansans. The healthcare provider knew an ECM solution was needed to better connect and manage information and increase the quality of care it provides.
"Finding a vendor that has an effective and seamless integration with our Epic EMR was our top criterion when evaluating ECM solutions," said Judy Corzine, Stormont-Vail's CIO. "Hyland Software came highly recommended by colleagues and really stood out when compared to other vendors." Using the Epic integration, employees will have secure access to all information in a patient's record. This information is available instantly from the familiar Epic interface, which will eliminate software adoption failures.
But the healthcare provider isn't stopping momentum there. Stormont-Vail will also be leveraging OnBase for revenue cycle management solution to unite information in its clinical, financial and administrative departments. "Hyland is also known for other strong integrations with other systems, which was reassuring and will help us find more value by expanding the solution to other departments. We chose OnBase because we see the long-term value of the solution."
Stormont-Vail is looking into the next expansion of OnBase with possibilities in the Accounts Payable department.
