Physicians Push the Limits of Enterprise Content Management Technology

CLEVELAND – December 10, 2013 – Sometimes the specific needs of nurses and physicians can be forgotten in the midst of medical and technological advances and growing legislative requirements. To ensure OnBase, Hyland Software’s enterprise content management (ECM) solution, is meeting the current and future needs of clinicians, Hyland established the Physician Advisory Board, comprised of highly-respected physicians from the United States and the UK. The Physician Advisory Board works directly with Hyland’s leadership and development teams to drive innovative enhancements focusing on improving patient care and further streamlining healthcare processes.

OnBase Physician Advisory Board members include:

Dr. Simeon Schwartz, Westmed Medical Group, Purchase, N.Y.
Dr. John Vaughan, Sharp Healthcare, San Diego, Calif.
Dr. David Haseltine, Georgetown Memorial Hospital System, Georgetown, S.C.
Dr. Robert White, The Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio
Dr. Johan Waktare, Liverpool Heart and Chest, Liverpool, U.K.
Dr. Shafiq Rab, Hackensack University Medical Center, Hackensack, New Jersey

“We are pushing the boundaries of technology to improve clinical practices and focus on positive patient outcomes,” said Simeon Schwartz, MD, president and CEO of Westmed Medical Group. “Hyland has been a terrific partner and this initiative will spark ideas for the future of innovative health IT solutions.”

“Healthcare professionals want to know if new technology solutions considered physician input,” said Dr. John Vaughan, director of healthcare informatics at Sharp Healthcare. “Workflow is critical to physician adoption. It needs to be intuitive, easy and fast, enabling clinicians to access the complete patient record, reduce the amount of time spent on documentation and allow for more time with patients.”
