EDCO® Health Information Solutions has announced a groundbreaking update to their patented medical record scanning and indexing software, Solarity®. Now, healthcare facilities utilizing Solarity have access to tools that will dramatically reduce mixed patient errors, as well as other enhancements that will drive productivity and quality improvements in the scanning and indexing process.

Electronically filing patient records to the incorrect patient chart in the document scanning process is a common, but critical, error with many undesirable downstream effects on patient care, privacy, and compliance. As part of the 4.0 release, Solarity now includes advanced misfiling detection rules which dramatically decrease the opportunity for documents to be electronically filed to the incorrect patient chart.

“The enhancements to Solarity in the 4.0 release provide healthcare facilities with critical tools to assist in achieving world-class accuracy in the indexing process,” said Chez Tschetter, Chief Information Officer at EDCO Health Information Solutions. “We are pleased to be the first to bring a quality and productivity management software package of this kind to the marketplace.”

The Solarity Scan module also received feature and function enhancements as part of the 4.0 rollout. One such feature includes the automatic grouping of images to automatically associate the front and back of a scanned document. This modification will prove to be particularly impactful for facilities that require signatures or other information to be placed on the back of a document which does not contain any identifying patient information. Additionally, the Solarity Scan interface now includes a single sign-in capability using existing Windows OS user credentials, and a simplified scanning interface designed for capturing documents in three clicks at the point of care. Both of these enhancements further simplify the requirements to accurately scan and index documents pre-discharge in order to meet the HIMSS EMR Adoption Model stage 7 requirement.

Enhancements made to the Solarity Review module provide for additional quality control. Solarity 4.0 includes an advanced extraction plugin which pre-validates the indexing information found on each document. During the content recognition process, documents’ indexing values are compared to the ADT feed to ensure accurate and complete information is prepopulated for the document review operator. Additionally, the 4.0 release provides additional access to quality audit tools via a secure webpage. This feature enhancement allows health information management leadership to view a batch of documents in the review process from anywhere with internet access as part of their auditing process.

Finally, the Solarity 4.0 release includes additional real-time tracking and reporting through the web-based product dashboards. The updated dashboard interface includes additional HIPAA reporting functionality and electronic chart reconciliation. It also includes advanced productivity monitoring at the aggregate and individual operator level.
