CLEVELAND, July 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- OnBase 12, the latest version of Hyland Software's enterprise content management (ECM) solution, earned the federal government's Stage One Meaningful Use certification as an electronic health record (EHR) Module by passing the criteria for inpatient and ambulatory settings. This certification confirms that OnBase can securely maintain information and integrate with other systems to share critical information along the patient record continuum. More than 1,400 healthcare providers are currently using OnBase to create more complete patient records, which are crucial to helping providers learn more about their patients, make better decisions and reduce expenditures.
"OnBase has been leveraged as a component of the EHR for years, partly because of its ability to capture and manage content like digital photos and clinical device output like EKG results that are found outside of an electronic medical record (EMR)," said Dan West, healthcare solutions manager for Hyland Software. "OnBase 12 not only continues to meet Meaningful Use criteria, it helps improve patient care by creating complete patient records."
Many healthcare organizations consider ECM because of the clear benefits on the clinical care side, but for organizations that choose OnBase, clinical use is just one piece of OnBase's potential. These organizations see the value of improving patient care by using ECM to connect clinical, revenue cycle and administrative departments. While an ECM solution might begin being used for clinical purposes, it must also be able to expand to include patient financial services, where it can augment billing systems with automated workflows and integration capabilities.
