Electronic Health Records, File Compression and OCR: Opportunity for New Efficiencies in Healthcare
As new laws take effect in the United States and beyond, healthcare IT reform is not only well-advised, but it is becoming mandatory. New state laws now require health records to be stored electronically for faster access and better healthcare. In addition, New York has just joined the list of states who require electronic prescriptions in an effort to prevent fraud and loss of information. All of these changes mean a well-managed IT department is becoming an increasingly vital part of the healthcare industry.
How can doctors, hospitals, and other healthcare providers benefit from these changes? CVISION offers PdfCompressor to compress and OCR scanned images and electronic documents efficiently. With compressed, text-searchable EOB forms, e-prescriptions, electronic health records, and other documents, healthcare providers can share and download important files faster, and use keyword search to instantly locate critical patient data. File compression and OCR help healthcare organizations access health information more efficiently and in turn help their patients faster. PdfCompressor’s OCR also reduces the risk of information loss by indexing documents, giving healthcare providers a fuller picture of the patient’s background and enabling them for more effective treatment.
While new laws and rapidly evolving IT can seem daunting, healthcare providers who are quick to adapt with new technologies can reach beyond compliance with these policies to generate new efficiencies in managing health forms and the critical information they contain. This allows healthcare providers to focus more time and resources on patient care in the long run.
