Aria Health, Two More Healthcare Providers Choose OnBase for ECM

Integration with EMR, use across the enterprise major factors in deciding on Hyland Software's solution, now used by more than 900 healthcare organizations

CLEVELAND, July 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In a very competitive market, healthcare providers are finding that enterprise content management (ECM) solutions are a differentiator. Take Aria Health for example. It's an innovative healthcare organization and depends on the quality of its physicians to live up to its reputation. But because its electronic medical record (EMR), AllScripts Sunrise Clinical Manager™ (formerly Eclipsys), still needed a complimentary system to handle unstructured content – like EKGs, insurance card scans, etc. – physicians didn't have a complete, integrated acute electronic health record (EHR), causing their satisfaction to not be as high as it could be. To change this situation, Aria Health sought an ECM solution – but not just to manage clinical content. It needed one that in the future could be used in administrative functions, too, from accounts payable to human resources. Because it met these and other needs, Aria Health – and Norton Healthcare and St. Luke's Health System – chose Hyland Software's OnBase solution.

"While the ultimate goal of investing in an ECM solution was physician satisfaction, different departments had different deciding factors. For IT, we needed an ECM solution that could provide a strong integration with our EMR and be used to consolidate disparate imaging systems. For the health information management (HIM) department, we were looking to improve efficiencies in deficiency management by having one system to work from. These needs led us to OnBase," said Tom Stride, CIO at Aria Health.

"I am confident OnBase will have a huge impact on physician satisfaction. When OnBase integrates with our AllScripts EMR, it will evolve how our physicians interact with patient information, and as a result, how satisfied they are to represent Aria Health. And because of its capability to be leveraged across all of our functions in the future, from human resources to patient billing, Aria Health is getting the most valuable ECM solution in OnBase."

In addition to Aria Health, 70 healthcare organizations have chosen OnBase in 2011 to date, including:

  • Norton Healthcare – With a network of five hospitals in Louisville, Norton Healthcare is the largest healthcare system in the region, serving both Kentucky and Southern Indiana. Norton Healthcare will integrate OnBase with its Epic EMR.

  • St. Luke's Health System – The only Idaho-based, not-for-profit health system, St. Luke's Health System provides facilities and services across the region – a 150-mile radius that encompasses southern and central Idaho, northern Nevada, and eastern Oregon. St. Luke's will integrate OnBase with its Epic EMR.
