October 5, 2007 - Texas Children's Hospital in Houston recently chose Hyland Software's OnBase to complete its conversion to electronic medical record document management.
Texas Children's Hospital is comprised of more than 40 pediatric primary care centers throughout the Houston area, in addition to the main campus in the Texas Medical Center. All patient care centers and the hospital are included in the implementation.
Integrated originally with GE Logician, OnBase also will be integrated with EpicCare Hospital and Ambulatory solutions from Epic Systems Corporation to complete the hospital's electronic medical record solution. The OnBase integration with Epic ensures clinicians have access not only to the information stored natively in Epic, but also the outside documentation that will now be presented seamlessly through the OnBase interface with Epic.
Together, Epic and OnBase will complete federally mandated electronic health record initiatives more than six years ahead of schedule. Reducing paper and adding levels of security and authentication, OnBase streamlines processes and will aid Texas Children's Hospital's HIPAA compliance.
Hyland says in the hospital's business office, users will benefit from the ability to access documents and processes in the document management solution directly from their familiar applications. For example, in accounts payable and materials management, users working in Oracle's PeopleSoft applications can access supporting documentation and content without leaving their preferred line-of-business application. The integration minimizes end-user apprehension to a new software solution and is minimally disruptive so many users never know they are utilizing content from OnBase.
"OnBase has proven its integration with GE Logician, Epic, and PeopleSoft," said David Finn, vice president and chief information officer for Texas Children's Hospital. "When searching for an ECM solution, we required that the provider have experience not only in integrating with complementary applications but also have the expertise to support our back office operations such as accounts payable, accounts receivable, human resources and our legal department, to make our ECM solution complete."
