Transitioning Paper to Electronic Health Records
Thursday January 31, 2013 1:00 PM ET, 12:00 PM CT
With healthcare providers producing nearly 2 billion documents each year, HIT Executives face daunting challenges related to paper in clinical settings. Records, orders, notes and clinical images all need to become part of a patient’s electronic health record. With new standards and other compliance regulations getting tighter, many healthcare providers are seeing the need for efficiency and simplicity, and to streamline their “paper strategies”.
Join Healthcare Informatics and Canon to explore the changing role of paper in healthcare organizations. This sixty-minute educational session will focus on paper-to-electronic data challenges as they impact care providers, patient safety and the bottom line. The program will highlight the benefits of different types of document handling solutions and explore the question of centralized scanning by the HIM team and decentralized scanning at the point-of-care working together to optimize processes within healthcare organizations .
- Describe how the use of paper is changing in healthcare organizations – and understand why paper will never go away.
- Define the impact of the paper-to-electronic data challenges for care providers and their effect on patient safety.
- Discuss the use of HL7 Clinical Document Architecture and how information standardization can improve organizational efficiency.
- Discover how decentralized scanning can complement existing centralized scanning efforts to help improve quality of care.
- Determine how to keep sensitive patient data secure while automating scanning workflows.
