For hospitals and health systems, effective content management can drive improvements in workforce efficiency. Large health organizations need to maintain large quantities of patient, billing, legal, and other content, often decades old. This content is typically saved in various file types and systems, which can impede information flow and pose a security risk when not managed properly.
The right document management system can help turn piles of paper and digital content into actionable data. The key to success, however, is to choose and implement a system that not only stores digital healthcare data, but also helps healthcare organizations leverage the data efficiently to truly realize its potential.
An enterprise document management system built for the healthcare industry can help meet organizational goals, such as improved patient care, enhanced patient experiences, operational efficiencies, improved access to data/information, robust security, and reduced costs. Additionally, an enterprise document management system can help automate routine tasks based on business rules, and can streamline manual, paper-based processes.
Quanum™ Enterprise Content Solutions enables healthcare organizations to easily collect, organize, and use clinical, financial, and administrative information. Results for workforce efficiency can include improved patient care, streamlined processes, and a significant reduction in paper and technology solutions that fit the needs of the organization.
Intelligent Data Capture, available in the latest release of Quanum Enterprise Content Solutions, can help automate content intake, reduce quality review processes, and drive workflow automation. It allows hospital departments to automatically receive documents, analyze them, and send them to their final destination, while reducing the many manual tasks involved in this process. Intelligent Data Capture identifies and analyzes content with machine learning, extracts pertinent data, and sends the document to the correct chart or folder in the application or other system, often without user intervention.
An integrated advanced search capability, Deep Search, can turn structured and unstructured content into valuable information. Silos of data are integrated to unlock information, accelerate insight discovery, and increase the effectiveness of finding the right information at the right time.
Additionally, enterprise content imaging allows doctors to have a complete picture of a patient’s health record. In the most basic sense, enterprise imaging is like an Electronic Health Record (EHR) for images. Enterprise imaging, along with an enterprise content management (ECM) solution, brings together all clinical data and multimedia, including pictures, documents, and video, for a complete media-enabled patient record viewable from one application. Among the most common imaging-intensive specialties that increasingly rely on enterprise imaging are cardiology, dermatology, and pathology.
