Clinicians need all of a patient’s information. Yet, while most electronic medical record (EMR) systems manage patient data and structured information, even the best systems can't manage the unstructured content (think paper documents, faxes, images, photos, etc.) that originates outside of it. This is true whether your organisation relies upon Allscripts or Epic, Cerner, GE Centricity, McKesson, Meditech, Netsmart or NextGen.
When your clinicians still have to go to a paper chart or navigate through multiple applications to find important patient medical records, the adoption rates of – and the level of satisfaction with – your organisation's "system of record" will suffer. Worse yet, clinicians may need to make a care decision without having all of the available information, putting patient safety at risk.
No matter how or where patient information originates, it has to be easy for clinicians and staff to get the information they need when, where and how they need it.
An enterprise solution, OnBase unifies all of your clinical content, including DICOM and non-DICOM images, complementing your EMR to establish a more complete electronic patient record. By integrating your EMR with OnBase, authorised user access clinical content from within the EMR. Rather than searching for what they need, this easy and immediate information access offers clinicians more time to spend providing care for patients. An OnBase-EMR integration also utilises native business process management tools to streamline processes, creating not only a more connected healthcare enterprise, but a more efficient one as well.
Fulfill your EMR strategy while extending the value of core HIT applications throughout your healthcare organisation by integrating them with OnBase.
