Any patient who has multiple doctors understands the challenges of fragmented and disconnected care. By visiting multiple organizations for treatment, patients face the burdens of lost or unavailable medical charts, duplicate procedures and constantly repeating information time and time again.
Physicians and staff also waste valuable time when they are forced to duplicate the efforts of their colleagues – time that could be spent treating patients.
Accountable care organizations (ACOs) work to overcome these burdens by delivering seamless, high-quality care for Medicare beneficiaries. The group of physicians and healthcare organizations that have agreed to work together to coordinate care require instant, real-time access to the most up-to-date patient information, no matter what facility the patient visits.
With Hyland Software’s enterprise content management (ECM) solution, OnBase, ACOs achieve their goals. With OnBase, ACOs work with an organization and solution that has experience creating a continuum of care across healthcare organizations of all sizes. OnBase creates a single, central location for all patient information and makes it instantly retrievable directly from the applications that physicians and staff use every day. Patient information is immediately available no matter what facility a patient visits to receive care.
OnBase provides the tools necessary to work with disparate EMRs, ERPs, PACs, RIS, as well as all unstructured data and paper documents. Further, Hyland Software continues to work to provide the solutions that ACOs need to reach their goals and help them reduce the risk associated with managing their patient population.
