Under pressure to simultaneously reduce costs, provide high-quality care and comply with government regulations, hospitals and health care providers can no longer settle for labour-intensive, error-prone, manual paper handling. Physicians, nurses and other medical professionals need electronic access to all patient-related data at the point of care, wherever that may be.
Unfortunately, up to 80% of medical data is unstructured (such as patient discharge summaries, clinical notes, imaging and test results, etc.) and remains inaccessible and untapped after it is initially created.
Fast access to accurate data is not just important for compliance and audit reasons—it can often save lives by enabling clinicians to view digital medical records for rapid decision making, particularly if accessing remotely. These records must comply with Australian digitised paper record standards such as AS 2828.2, HL7, Secure Messaging, and ICD10.
Read this white paper to see how this can be accomplished so the care you provide in your hospital is superior and dependable.
