CLEVELAND and PORTSMOUTH, N.H., Nov. 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hyland Software and Bottomline Technologies (Nasdaq:EPAY) have partnered to integrate advanced mobile data capture and enterprise content management (ECM) technology to simplify the collection and delivery of critical healthcare data. The integrated solution enables clinicians and administrative staff to spend more time with patients and less time manually entering data into a computer.
The joint OnBase and Bottomline solution enables staff members and patients to capture almost any type of information - bedside registration, patient questionnaires, education forms, clinical documentation, informed consents, signatures and other critical forms - via tablets, including the iPad®. The completed documents, and the discrete data elements they contain, are then instantly available to clinicians and hospital staff through their EMR without the need for manual printing, scanning or indexing. Capturing this content electronically not only eliminates redundant steps in patient registration and other document-centric processes, it also gives providers immediate access to the discrete data necessary for accurate decisioning and high-quality care delivery.
"Empowering clinicians to spend more time with their patients and deliver superior care is critical to the foundation of health IT," said Susan deCathelineau, vice president of healthcare sales and services at Hyland Software. "Combining mobile data capture and ECM helps administrative staff more efficiently complete the patient record and eliminates the need to manually re-enter data. As patients' expectations rise for better and faster service, mobile technologies can help organizations meet the challenge."
"Healthcare reform has placed tremendous pressure on hospitals to compete not only for better outcomes at lower costs, but also for the delivery of the highest-quality patient experience. Today's patients are increasingly familiar with mobile technologies and, as a result, there is a growing expectation that their healthcare providers utilize these same technologies when delivering care," said Michael Kortan, vice president of healthcare at Bottomline Technologies. "By implementing a completely integrated solution for capturing discrete data and signatures in concert with the ECM, healthcare providers can increase patient satisfaction while driving much-needed organizational efficiencies and cost savings."
