White Papers

This white paper examines the obstacles preventing the move away from fax machines, and the benefits of having a communications system that integrates faxed documents into healthcare systems and solutions.
Medical practices have been contemplating the prospect of moving from paper-based records to electronic health record (EHR) systems for decades. But relatively few have begun taking steps to make the transition – until now. This white paper examines the factors that have kept many medical practices from moving forward with EHR over the years and the factors that are prompting action today; explains some of the technological requirements of making the transition to EHR and how to begin to meet them; and explores the significant operational, clinical and administrative benefits to be gained in the process.
If we are at or approaching a technological tipping point in the history of healthcare, then it has never been more important for physician practices to select the right electronic health record (EHR) – and there are tangible reasons to believe so. This whitepaper comments on recent customer surveys, and discusses foundational criteria for selecting the right EHR solution, determining your “game plan” and the process for assessment and selection. Justin Barnes is chairman emeritus of the national Electronic Health Record Association (EHR Association), and is vice president of marketing, industry affairs and government affairs for Greenway Medical Technologies, Inc.
The emergence of a new class of Android (TM) mobile devices creates an opportunity for doctors and medical professionals to access patient data wherever they are. Read this white paper to learn how to access patient data and view medical images on Android devices.
The Meaningful Use objectives in the HITECH Act are creating new urgency for hospitals and other healthcare provider organizations to implement EHR and CPOE systems. This white paper outlines three key steps that your organization can take to accelerate EHR and CPOE adoption. Read on to discover out how the combination of desktop virtualization and single sign-on make it faster and easier to deploy new clinical applications while optimizing the clinician experience, protecting patient data, and reducing cost and complexity.
The move from paper-based medical records systems to electronic medical records (EMR) technology is improving patient outcomes, increasing clinician productivity, and lowering costs. However, access to patient information must not only be secure, but also fast, convenient and reliable. Technologies that provide security but frustrate clinicians will slow EMR adoption to a crawl. In this white paper, you’ll learn how you can solve this “last mile” problem and maximize user adoption by providing fast, convenient, secure access to EMR data across multiple clients, where and when the clinician requests it.
Despite being identified as an essential tool to support quality care initiatives, improve patient safety and reduce healthcare costs, EMR and EHR systems have been stuck in a slow growth cycle. However, pressure is quickly mounting on caregivers to adopt and demonstrate meaningful use of EMR/EHR technology. Healthcare Informatics Research recently interviewed nearly 500 healthcare organizations to shed light on the current state of EMR/EHR adoption. Download this report to discover how organizations are overcoming obstacles to adoption, how they're benefitting from EMR/EHR solutions, and where the industry is going next.
