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.

As the rates of diabetes continue to increase throughout the United States and across the globe, so do the rates of diabetic retinopathy, which affects up to 80 percent of all patients who have had diabetes for 10 years or more. These troublesome trends effect healthcare providers who are transitioning toward new care and reimbursement models, such as value-based purchasing, bundled payments and accountable care. Under these risk-sharing models, as well as socialized medicine outside of the United States, the incentives are to identify conditions early and intervene before conditions worsen and costs escalate. Doing so will help reduce the costs of long-term care.
