Healthcare organisations improve patient care and streamline processes across the care continuum with Hyland Software’s OnBase

CLEVELAND – Sept. 9, 2013 – Healthcare IT leaders from around the world will meet at the Epic Users’ Group Meeting (UGM) on September 16-19 in Verona, Wis., to discover the latest developments regarding care process improvements, interoperability, ACOs and numerous other topics. Hyland Software will share its experience helping more than 5,000 healthcare facilities create more complete patient records and streamline processes across the organization by integrating the OnBase enterprise content management (ECM) solution with the Epic electronic paper record (EPR).

Carle Foundation Hospital and Physician Group, recognised as one of the most wired healthcare organisations by Hospitals and Health Networks magazine, integrated OnBase with Epic to create more complete patient records. Carle uses OnBase to capture, store, manage and unify patient information stored both inside and outside of Epic, including electronic reports from laboratory and radiology departments, digital photographs and video files of cardiac catheterisations. In addition to streamlining clinical processes, Carle is expanding its solution across the enterprise to drive additional efficiencies, integrating OnBase with its Lawson enterprise resource planning (ERP) and Optum computer-assisted coding (CAC) systems.

“Hyland helps us leverage our technology investments by integrating with Epic and existing systems; empowering clinicians to provide more informed care which results in improved outcomes and patient satisfaction,” said Jeff Ford, director of application management services at Carle Foundation Hospital and Physician Group. “Integrating with Epic, Lawson and Optum allows us to drive additional efficiencies and meet the requirements of Meaningful Use and ICD-10.”

Hyland Software’s healthcare industry experts will be available at the Epic UGM to discuss key solutions addressing challenges faced by healthcare organisations, such as:
  • Establishing a complete, secure electronic patient record compliant with Meaningful Use 
  • Heightening physician satisfaction by providing immediate access to all the data they need 
  • Reducing costs by eliminating paper and disparate systems with a centralised electronic repository 
  • Streamlining clinical and administrative processes with content-centric automation 
  • Preparing for ICD-10 implementation using computer-assisted coding 
  • Centralising and archiving clinical content such as DICOM, through Vendor Neutral Archive strategy 
  • Providing mobile solutions for end users to access their daily workflow 
  • Exclusively endorsed by the American Hospital Association and utilized by more Epic customers than any other ECM suite, OnBase provides clinicians with the most comprehensive view of their patients through a single interface.

“The integration with Epic creates a true enterprise solution from scheduling and registration to ambulatory services and long-term care,” said Susan deCathelineau, vice president of healthcare sales and services at Hyland Software. “With more than 125 joint Hyland and Epic customers, representing more than 600 hospitals and 5,000 ambulatory and sub-acute sites, we have an established track record of delivering tightly aligned solutions on time and on budget.”
