February 28, 2014 — Lexmark’s Perceptive Software demonstrated its Universal Clinical Platform solution for enterprise clinical content management at the 2014 meeting of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS). The solution can manage all patient-related, unstructured content surrounding the electronic medical record (EMR) to improve physician productivity and collaboration, ease information sharing and ultimately improve patient care.
Currently healthcare providers are struggling with an incomplete picture of patients because valuable diagnostic content and other information are stored in disparate IT systems, data silos and department archives. While healthcare organizations have made large investments in healthcare IT, including EMR systems, to improve clinical outcomes and drive down costs, there remains a vast collection of unstructured content that the EMR does not manage — including clinical images, digital photos, scanned documents and video files — resulting in an incomplete patient record.
Perceptive Software’s Universal Clinical Platform helps healthcare organizations connect, manage and share patient content from disparate applications, including picture archiving and communication systems (PACS), so they work in unison to optimize technology investments and make patient content available in existing applications, including the EMR. With enhanced ability to bring more clinical content together at the point of need, healthcare providers can save time and make fully informed patient care decisions.
“Perceptive Software began building our game-changing Universal Clinical Platform solution with the acquisition of the world’s market-leading VNA [vendor-neutral archive] provider, Acuo Technologies,” said Perceptive Software Chief Technology Officer Brian Anderson. “We expanded our solution by acquiring the most widely adopted image capture and connectivity technology provider, PACSGear, presently used in more than 3,000 organizations across 50 countries. Perceptive is the only vendor to bring together enterprise content management, vendor neutral archive, and image capture and connectivity technology to help our customers deliver a complete patient record.”
