Memorial Healthcare, a not-for-profit healthcare organisation located in Shiawassee County, Michigan, has selected Hyland Software’s OnBase enterprise content management (ECM) solution to automate the electronic capture and access of information across its patient care delivery system, including acute, ambulatory and home-health services.
Memorial Healthcare will integrate OnBase with its Meditech hospital information system to streamline contract management and maximise human resources.
The hospital, after assessing Meditech’s scanning and archiving solution, found that the business requirements of departments such as human resources and accounts payable required more workflow capability than could be provided.
Memorial Healthcare preferred Hyland Software’s OnBase as it felt it meets the hospital’s clinical and back office needs.
Memorial Healthcare vice president of information services Frank Fear said that the hospital selected OnBase as it could meet both its clinical and back office needs.
"Implementing OnBase across the enterprise will allow us to standardise our content management strategy and provide staff members with easy access to critical information stored outside of our Meditech hospital information system," Fear added.
The integration of OnBase with Meditech helps to manage images and other unstructured data by creating a comprehensive view of the patient record.
The ECM is expected to help the hospital electronically capture paper documents, provide access to documents in the EMR, speed up manual processes with electronic workflows and centralise unstructured content in a single repository.
Hyland Software vice president of healthcare sales and services Susan deCathelineau said the company’s integration with Meditech helps organisations achieve meaningful use and drive value across the enterprise.
"Our integration with Meditech and other leading electronic medical records makes OnBase the best solution to provide the right information to the right user when and where they need it," deCathelineau added.
Memorial Healthcare is a 150-bed facility with a medical staff of over 180, and over 1,000 employees.
