While the electronic patient record (EPR) is the foundation for an electronic health record, it's missing critical pieces that could alter the patient storyline. Important unstructured content—such as EKG results, medical images, digital photos, emails, paper forms and more— is generated outside of the EPR and lives in other systems or on paper. Even when an EPR is fully implemented, it’s estimated that up to 75 per cent of patient information resides elsewhere.
Optimising clinical content and the way it’s delivered to clinicians and patients is the next logical step on the road to the complete electronic health record.
Pairing the right ECM and enterprise medical imaging technology with the right workflow and mobile solutions and incorporating them into your EPR will ensure that more complete patient information is delivered when, where and how it’s needed.
With native business process and case management capabilities, mobile technology and the ability to integrate with more than 500 applications, OnBase helps close the content gap and create a more complete, readily accessible patient record.
In combination with your organisation’s existing EPR and other health information technology systems, leveraging OnBase creates a compelling solution allowing clinicians and patients to:
Presenting a comprehensive picture of a patient’s total healthcare experience allows clinicians to make better-informed, time-sensitive decisions about patient care. Furthermore, more accurate and complete information improves patient safety and reduces the chance of errors.
Optimised clinical content and an integrated paperless record yields a host of benefits by:
