Removing the Paper from Paperwork when Working with Patient Records
Speaker: Mike Knebel, CEO at Forward Advantage
Even the most integrated hospitals and healthcare systems still exchange paper medical records via processes including physical fax machines and the postal service, with the HIM department typically bearing the burden of managing the process. While point-to-point integrations can solve many information exchange challenges, most of these paperwork workflows will continue outside of the EHR for years to come.
More recently, with technologies like OCR, NLP, AI, automated faxing, and more, an HIM department can realize efficiencies and relieve the burden of dealing with paper. Implementing new workflow tools and communication methods can eliminate the need for printing and scanning, fax machines, and help solve the ongoing challenges of overburdened staff and limited resources. In this webinar, learn how to keep faxes electronic, remove duplicate tasks from your processes, file documents automatically to the patient chart and most importantly, how to free your staff from the burden of focusing on paper over patients.
