Dbtech and Iatric Systems Team up to Deliver Full-featured Document Management to MEDITECH Clients

Community hospitals can now seamlessly integrate easy-to-use document management, workflow automation, electronic forms & reporting into MEDITECH.


iatricCLARK, NJ – MAY 31, 2011 – dbtech and well-known healthcare systems integrator Iatric Systems have partnered to help MEDITECH clients quickly convert their legacy document management systems to dbtech Ras and seamlessly manage all enterprise content through the MEDITECH Healthcare Information System.

Until now, several hundred MEDITECH clients have been using a document imaging program from Valco Data Systems. The company was recently acquired and its products are being phased out, forcing these clients to migrate data to costly, IT-intensive document management systems prescribed by MEDITECH or the acquiring company.

“MEDITECH clients now have a cost-effective option to integrate dbtech Ras and MEDITECH without installation hassles for IT or workflow changes for business line managers,” said Philip N. Kaplan, CEO of dbtech. “Not only do clients get a thorough and efficient conversion and a seamless link between the two programs, but they now have a solution that significantly reduces costs and improves efficiencies for all paper-intensive departments.”

For more than a decade, Iatric Systems has been integrating and supporting complementary products for more than 900 MEDITECH hospitals. Iatric and dbtech have jointly developed a cost-effective Valco Conversion solution and competitive upgrade offer for MEDITECH clients. Iatric provides the API between dbtech Ras and the MEDITECH HIS so that all documents stored in Ras can be viewed through MEDITECH.

Both companies have expertise in data file conversions and together have come up with a proven methodology for maintaining data integrity during and after the transition to dbtech Ras. The joint solution is available now.

Valco clients that switch to Ras, can import Valco data, and be up, running, trained and generating ROI in six weeks or less. And unlike Valco, which only manages patient-related documents, Ras is also used in human resources, materials management, medical records, patient access services and case management.

Ras is an easy-to-use enterprise content management and workflow system and a leading solution provider for community hospitals. Its use allows clients to:

  • Accelerate the revenue cycle through workflow automation.
  • Convert and paper-based information to electronic and manage it.
  • Continuously improve business processes.
  • Capture, compress and archive both scanned paper and electronic patient information into a searchable database that authorized users view in report form.
