"The integration of Perceptive Software is advantageous to all caregivers at Altru. Having the ability to look at any scanned information without having to leave the patient information within Epic is huge." Mark Waind, Altru Health System
Shawnee, KS (PRWEB) November 01, 2012
Perceptive Software, creator of a complete family of intelligent capture, content and process management, enterprise search and integration products, today announced that Altru Health System has selected Perceptive Software content and process management solutions to complement its Epic patient registration, health information management (HIM) and patient finance processes across the entire organization.
These solutions built with Perceptive Software’s document management, imaging, workflow and other content and process management technology will help enable the Grand Forks, N.D., health system to capture, store, manage and access data within the patient record.
Perceptive Software will enable Altru Health System users to acquire the content required for the patient record and store the information securely in the Perceptive repository, permitting access to only those with the appropriate permissions. Using Perceptive Workflow, Altru staffers will be able to direct patient documentation to the appropriate staff for immediate action, resulting in smoother, faster processes in patient access, HIM and patient finance.
The new process will allow Altru staffers immediate access to the information they need, directly from within Epic.
“We’re really looking forward to an enterprise solution for content management,” said Mark Waind, Administrative Director of Information Services, Altru Health System. “In the past, we’ve had three or four scanning systems, so by implementing an enterprise solution, we benefit greatly from both an efficiency and dollars and cents standpoint.
“Additionally, the integration of Perceptive Software is advantageous to all caregivers at Altru. Having the ability to look at any scanned information without having to leave the patient information within Epic is huge, especially when the provider is counting every click and every minute with each encounter,” added Waind.
Altru Health System has future plans to utilize Perceptive Software’s content and process management solutions in its accounts payable and HR departments.
