As hospitals strive to achieve Meaningful Use of EHRs under the HITECH act, they find certified systems lack the ability to eliminate all paper-centric processes. EHR’s will improve healthcare over time, but greater efficiencies, improved processes and a paper-free environment will take years to achieve.
Document management can accelerate these processes and provide insight into deficiencies.
Paper will be the medium of choice for many workflows for the foreseeable future, and document management can accelerate these processes and provide insight into deficiencies. As hospitals consider Document Management they must expand their focus beyond the management of patient processes. This myopic patient-centric view of document management leaves hospitals struggling to accommodate Administrative and Financial workflows. Hospitals implementing their HIT Vendor’s scanning and archiving solution may need to purchase another solution to accommodate vendor invoices, employment applications and licensing certifications.
We will transfer your existing VALCO data with our partner IATRIC Systems
Most hospitals do not consider enterprise needs as they access Document Management. This is especially true for hospitals replacing defunct platforms like VALCO. These hospitals seek a VALCO functional equivalent and are failing to take advantage of this opportunity to expand Document Management to the enterprise. If you are a VALCO customer you can call dbtech and we will transfer your existing VALCO data with our partner IATRIC Systems. Your new Ras system will manage invoice tracking, capital requests and any other paper-centric process within your hospital.
For hospitals considering the purchase of their HIT vendor’s scanning and archiving solution, be sure they are not just focusing on patient processes. For instance, many Meditech hospitals will claim their platform will manage AP, HR and other internal processes, but there are no reported clients using Scan & Archive beyond patient needs.
Whether you are looking for a new Document Management platform, or replacing VALCO, call dbtech and let us demonstrate a true Enterprise-wide Document Management solution.
