Medical Group Eases the Pain of Health Records Management Using EMC Technology and Services

November 8, 2007 - EMC Corporation today said the University of Miami Clinical Enterprise Technologies (UMCET) is using the EMC Documentum ApplicationXtender software suite to transition the University of Miami Medical Group to an electronic medical record system.

Using EMC technology, services and support, UMCET created a hybrid medical record system to manage both paper and electronic documents and patient records. Physicians and hospital staff will use the unified platform that aggregates, manages and archives all paper and electronic patient information, and presents it via an intuitive user interface customized to meet their needs.

The University of Miami Medical Group includes more than 800 physicians across a dozen south Florida hospitals and other locations. As the first step toward an electronic medical record (EMR) system, UMCET teamed with EMC services and support to create a customized health record management system built upon the EMC ApplicationXtender document management platform. Patient data, medical records, clinical notes, lab reports and other electronic information are received from the hospitals’ registration systems, transcription systems and other applications. The electronic data is then integrated with paper clinical charts that are scanned and indexed at the point of care. UMCET uses ApplicationXtender to manage the clinical documentation and EMC DiskXtender to archive the scanned images.

“We were challenged to improve our current EMR and in doing so, needed a partner that would react quickly to our needs,” said Oscar Perez, IT director at UMCET. “EMC delivered on this need, and provided us with a reliable platform on which we built a customized solution for our physician community that fits well within their routine business practices.”

Using ApplicationXtender Web Services API, UMCET built an intuitive user interface that the company says resulted in widespread adoption by physicians. Web-based access to the clinical repository now allows physicians at any location to access electronic patient charts using an Internet browser.
