From registration to discharge, an enterprise solution should simplify processes at every stage. Listen in as Mott Fisk describes how integrating OnBase by Hyland and Epic has sped processes and simplified access to information at Metro Health Hospital.
We’ve been using OnBase and Epic for about seven years. We went live with both of them in 2006.
We pretty much use all of the Epic OnBase integration that is available, starting with the scheduling department. Our physician written orders come over through the fax, then they are swept into OnBase automatically, and they are indexed by the scheduling department. And an HL7 message is sent over to Epic.
The second area that we use the OnBase Epic integration is with a registration area and what they do is they use the OnBase Epic integrated scanning to scan the registration documents such as the insurance cards, a driver's license, a HIPAA, the consents and then a link is established in Epic for the documents being stored in OnBase.
Our clinical areas use the OnBase Epic integrated scanning and they also scan documents using the MFP, the multifunctional printer. The documents are stored in a subdirectory and OnBase server. They're swept into OnBase where they are indexed by our HIM department and their link is automatically sent to Epic as well.
Another area that uses the Epic OnBase integration is the HIM department. They use the OnBase Epic integration for ROI printing and they also use the OnBase Epic integration for the e-signature deficiencies for providers. The providers really like this because it makes it really easy for them to electronically sign their deficiencies from within the Epic In-Basket.
