CLEVELAND, Sept. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The best patient care is propelled by efficient processes, from patient registration to discharge, and beyond. Increasingly, hospitals are prioritizing enterprise content management (ECM) software as a way to achieve excellent patient care. Specifically, they're looking for a true ECM solution that can be leveraged across the healthcare enterprise, augmenting both an electronic medical record (EMR) and an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. Recognizing the need for hospitals to identify the ideal ECM solution, after its market review, the American Hospital Association (AHA) has exclusively endorsed Hyland Software's OnBase solution as the ECM solution of choice for hospitals for the third consecutive three-year term.
