New York medical center to integrate ImageNow with its MEDITECH application for Medical records,patient registration and business office.

Perceptive Software, creator of enterprise content management (ECM) solutions, including ImageNow document management, imaging and workflow, announced recently that United Memorial Medical Center will replace its current document management solution with Perceptive Software's ECM solutions for healthcare. They will implement the Perceptive solutions in medical records, patient registration and in the business office.

"The current state of our document management and scanning technology served a simple and effective purpose, however as an organization, we felt we needed to move forward with a more robust, flexible enterprise solution that can accommodate our health information management and registration departments, as well as our back office needs," said Kurt Calman, Chief Information Officer, United Memorial Medical Center.

Located between Buffalo and Rochester in New York, United Memorial Medical Center is the only acute care hospital in Genesee County. With 131 licensed beds, they provide necessary healthcare services to a regional population of over 93,000 residents. United Memorial Medical Center will seamlessly integrate ImageNow with its MEDITECH application, enabling employees at the medical center to manage content throughout its lifecycle, wherever it's needed in the facility. Advanced scanning, archiving and integration options will enable clinical and administrative staff across the facility to electronically manage patient information directly from patient records in MEDITECH, including the ability for physicians to electronically sign patient medical records.

"With ImageNow, we will be able to move forward to a paperless system, consolidate resources into a single encompassing solution and streamline the workflows for all staff involved, including our physicians," said Calman. "The flexibility of the product and its feature set, while remaining simple to use, really put Perceptive ahead of the competition. The ability to integrate with a multitude of different information systems was a major point in our decision, especially with the enterprise document management solution. In addition, the ability to maintain security and track the entire audit trail of medical documentation tremendously improves some of the paper processes in place today and keeps us ahead of the curve when it comes to HIPAA compliancy. ImageNow will be a key point for our organization in providing options to our doctors and medical record staff, which in turn will improve our quality of care and service."
