Imagine what’s possible when you take the complexity out of document-based processes. You can deliver a better patient experience at lower cost when you use document scanners and capture software to digitise routines that rely on paper.
Healthcare Providers are under significant pressure to automate and reduce cost, which often conflicts with the need for accuracy and rising expectation for patient experience.
By going digital you’re already lowering costs by taking manual steps out of your processes. You can achieve an even lower total cost of ownership (TCO) with Alaris, through superior feeding that truly optimizes document capture.
Automate for Efficiency
Advanced paper handling capabilities take costly manual steps out of scanning, and keep operations up and running.
Eliminating paper records mitigates risk and ensures secure data handling and storage. Integration with leading EMRs and certification can help you meet standards and security requirements for the handling and exchange of patient data.
Securely Integrate, with Data Fidelity
Alaris has worked with hundreds of healthcare integrators to build scanning solutions that capture data from documents and route them directly into organizations’ EMRs.
Capture Medical Records with Clarity
Great image quality lets you more accurately extract data from medical records, admissions forms, and every other kind of document
Despite all the efforts made to digitize processes in healthcare, there are still lots of paper-based bottlenecks which can drag down efficiency and experience with extra work. Download Document Capture Solutions for Healthcare Providers for a deeper look at how Alaris is working with organizations to solve these challenges today.
The admissions process is paper-intensive, and digitizing as soon as documents are handed over the front desk is the straightest path to a digital patient record. Alaris and Kodak branded scanners can handle all the different kinds of documents that come through at admission and discharge: models support a broad range of documents, including lighter weight papers and embossed hard cards. Flatbed options give even greater flexibility for capturing hard-bound or delicate materials. Network, wireless models give you the flexibility to capture at the point of need - even on medical carts. Innovations in document feeding technology mean that users don’t need to be scanning experts to capture the best quality data. Active Feed technology automatically jogs pages so that they line up for scanning in the feeder without worry about alignment issues or jams. Perfect Page technology ensures that scanned images are clear and crisp, so they can be used to help patients later on in their treatment journey.
Accurate, organized and secure record keeping is critical, but the sheer volume of paper that comes into organizations make it difficult. Eliminating paper records is not only the means to achieve cost-efficient operations, it also mitigates risk with secure handling and storage. Kodak brand production scanners from Alaris let organizations scan patient records at high volumes, no matter what the mix of document size or quality. The heavy duty cycles of these scanners ensure all-day operation, and are built with features to reduce manual labor in the scanning process. That helps keep costs low, while delivering Perfect Page image excellence and outstanding reliability backed by Alaris support.
The relationship with Payers and government directives continue to make reimbursement complex, and make the documentation requirement rigorous. When that documentation originates on paper, processing times, missing information or disputes can delay payment. That leaves healthcare Payers and in some cases, patients, to cover significant cost. You can automate and speed up back office processes, including data exchange, by digitizing documents. Do it quickly and reliably on documents like benefit eligibility verification, claims and invoices with scanners from Alaris. Production and departmental scanners from Alaris have a straight-through paper path, so it’s easy to digitize the wide range of documents needed to support Payer transactions and government regulations. The Alaris business has been supporting healthcare organizations, and has long-standing relationships with major healthcare Payers, so you can be sure scanned data is received reliably.
