Simplifying Patient Onboarding for Healthcare Professionals

Vanilda Brambila

We all know how busy healthcare providers and administrators can be. Every day brings a new wave of incoming patients. Each visit produces data that must be securely stored and accessible immediately. Medical records must be accurately maintained in a timely manner to protect treatment timeframes and patient outcomes. The steady high volume of paper-based records can be a heavy burden on healthcare office workers.

Kodak Alaris works with hundreds of healthcare providers around the world to optimize their patient onboarding processes. Our solutions and expert consulting can help you streamline your records management workflows, save time and money, and ensure that patient information is processed quickly, securely, and accurately.

Here’s how:

  1. Seamless Integration with EMR Systems: Scanners from Kodak Alaris are certified by several major Electronic Medical Records (EMR) vendors. We work with many healthcare integrators to build scanning solutions that capture data from documents and route them directly into EMR systems. In addition, our scanners can easily handle documents of various lengths and types, such as ECG charts, which helps save critical time on document handling and preparation.
    “Reliably accurate data capture is important in every business process, but when it comes to healthcare records, it’s critical. Quality and accuracy should never be an area of compromise.
  2. Intelligent Automation: Our technology partnership with UiPath, a leading enterprise automation software company, makes it easy to introduce machine learning into your data onboarding process to achieve a new level of workflow efficiency.

    For example, clinics are having a lot of success with our solution that combines the Kodak INfuse AX Scanner with the UiPath automation platform to simplify and automate patient onboarding.

    Healthcare administrators simply feed each patient’s ID card, insurance card, and patient intake forms into the scanner for instant delivery into their EMR systems, for customer information updates and insurance approvals. The UiPath software automatically identifies any missing or mismatched information, displaying a message on the scanner in real time.

    This critical validation at the point of input practically eliminates the risk of human error and it ensures that patient records are always complete and accurate at intake, which prevents costly re-work later on.

    This joint solution is gaining a lot of attention for its ability to transform patient intake processing. In fact, Kodak Alaris and UiPath were recently presented with the Robotic Process Automation (RPA) Product of the Year Award, by Document Management magazine in London.

  3. Automatic barcode reading: With built-in barcode reading, you can accurately produce and update patient records by automatically extracting the patient’s name and record number, the clinic visited, tests taken, date of consultation, surgery approvals, and other key data. The scanner quickly captures this information and hands it over to UiPath bots to automate the patient check-in.

  4. Superior image quality: The better the image, the more accurate the captured data will be. Kodak Alaris is recognized worldwide as the gold standard for document scanners and data capture software. This well-earned reputation is based in many factors, including image quality. All document scanners from Kodak Alaris have Perfect Page technology to produce results that are consistently better than the originals. When tested against competing brands, we scored 20% higher on average for OCR accuracy. Reliably accurate data capture is important in every business process, but when it comes to healthcare records, it’s critical. Quality and accuracy should never be an area of compromise.

  5. Exceptional services and support: We support our scanners with service contracts that ensure their long-term integrity. In the rare case that a problem arises, our customers are secure in the knowledge that a professional will be on site quickly to resolve it. The Support Services team at Kodak Alaris is known around the world for its responsiveness, technical proficiency, and professionalism. This is reflected in our Net Promoter Score of 9/10, which demonstrates exceptional customer loyalty that we are proud to have earned.

For these reasons and more, Kodak Alaris is a leading provider of intelligent data capture solutions for healthcare organizations. We make it easy for clinics, agencies, and hospitals to improve efficiency across the board, saving time and money and freeing up resources to focus on the primary mission: improving patient care.
