Document Management – The Glue that Holds It All TogetherPosted March 1, 2013 —
When it all comes down to it, the glue that holds all your transcription activity, dictation of patient notes, and transport of that medical information is a good document management system. A viable web-based platform can cement all of these activities together for creating, storing and sharing clinical documentation from any internet-enabled device. A good document management system can also be customized to meet the specific workflow needs of hospitals and medical practices. These systems will allow you to dictate by telephone, handheld digital voice recorder (DVR), headset and PC, or front-end speech recognition.
A viable web-based document management platform will provide online approval of your documentation, using options such as e-Signature and batch approval. It will also deliver your documents and route them automatically to any locations/offices, fax machines, even printer trays that you choose. You can also import narrative notes and discrete data directly into your EMR.
In addition, a proven document management system will provide secure and complete access to your documents from any PC or smart phone with internet access, and all access to your documents will be tracked in complete compliance with HIPAA regulations.
