Enterprise Content Management

 Document management systems are used to store and maintain electronic documents or images of paper documents. These systems make it easier for healthcare providers and administrators to access and track patient and organizational data. Enterprise document management is touted as a key part of the effort to create an integrated and comprehensive view of both the patient and the continuum of care.

Healthcare organizations are burdened with a deluge of data and it’s only getting worse over time. Whether it’s provider-generated observational data coming through EHRs, medical imaging and telemetry data, or patient-generated consumer device and genetic data, the traditional methods for managing health information do not scale. Given the enormous and ever-increasing value of healthcare data, new approaches to enterprise ILM are essential.

When information is difficult to securely access, process and share, making sure it reaches the right people at the right time is often difficult. Your EMR, HIS, billing system or ERP don’t handle “unstructured content” well.

There are five key processes where ECM will have the greatest impact in the shortest amount of time, all while supporting today’s current strategic initiatives, such as Meaningful Use, accountable care organizations, health information exchanges and more.
