The contract was signed in conjunction with the organization’s upgrade to the IDX Carecast enterprise clinical system, which enables authorized users to securely access document-based information such as patient consent forms – within the electronic health record, and supports increased productivity and efficiency.
Workflow and document management solutions provider Streamline Health also markets the software as accessANYware, and says it is the foundational element of its solutions portfolio.
Streamline Health says its document management system addresses operational inefficiencies and streamlines the flow of information associated with a patient’s electronic medical record. The software is designed to provide document management capabilities in conjunction with both IDX LastWord and the next-generation Carecast system, and helps to ensure that paper-based documents can be stored and managed in electronic form within the patient’s electronic health record.
Gary Weiner, chief information officer at St Vincent’s Medical Center, said, We plan to deploy document management within our existing LastWord system and will expand our document management capabilities as we activate Carecast in 2006. As a result, our physicians will be able to quickly and securely access document images within our electronic health records system. The end result promises to benefit physician satisfaction and ultimately enhance the quality of patient care.
