iMedica, a developer of healthcare softwares for physician practices, has formed a technology partnership with Imagetek, a provider of enterprise content management and business process automation systems, to strengthen the capture of paper-based documents and ease the transition to the paperless physician practice.
Together, Imagetek and iMedica have created a system that reportedly provides clinicians with reliable access to patient records, including legacy paper documents, through the Inofile interface.
Hosted within the Fujitsu fi-6010N iScanner, Inofile’s convenient touch-and-go feature allows clinicians to automatically scan and store documents in the correct location within iMedica’s Patient Relationship Manager, a single-application electronic medical record (EMR) and practice management system that utilizes Microsoft’s latest .NET technology, the companies said.
Using the advanced features of the Fujitsu fi-6010N iScanner, hospitals, physician offices and medical clinics can reportedly scan paper-based documents, capture the documents in digital formats and provide healthcare professionals with instant accessibility. EMR/EHRs incorporate built-in health maintenance reminders, messaging and tasking tools and a patient portal, as well as important elements such as portability, off-site back-up and interoperability.
Dane Meuler, vice president of business development at Imagetek, said: Joining forces with iMedica has allowed us to leverage the amazing technology of Inofile that is essential for the healthcare industry. This integration has enabled us to make a seamless records management solution that gives users a more efficient means of completing the transition to a paperless office.
