EDCO® Health Information Solutions will present next week at the national American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) Product World session on October 27, 2012 at 4:00 p.m.in the Georgia World Congress Center room A403. The topic, “Point of Care Medical Records Scanning” is expected to draw significant interest.
Healthcare facilities who are creating plans to achieve Stage 7 of the Health Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Electronic Medical Record Adoption model are currently considering various solutions to capture documents critical for patient care within 24 hours of creation. By utilizing a distributed scanning methodology that captures documents at the point of care, healthcare facilities can achieve the Stage 7 requirement and provide critical information to physicians electronically for patient care.
This AHIMA Product World session will highlight the pros and potential pitfalls when medical records are scanned at the point of care. It will also illustrate how EDCO’s Solarity software will allow healthcare facilities to achieve 99% or greater accuracy and centrally index documents in one hour or less.
“Electronic access to the complete patient chart is critical to delivering exemplary patient care,” said Bill Glassman, President and CEO of EDCO Health Information Solutions. “By scanning at the point of care and centrally indexing documents using Solarity, healthcare leaders will experience the quality control of a centralized scanning operation in a decentralized model.”
