Hyland Software Hosts User Forum for Healthcare Organizations that Integrate ECM, EMR Software

Organizations that integrate OnBase with Epic's EMR solutions hear from representatives on best practices for EMR integration, enterprise approach to ECM software

CLEVELAND, Aug. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- As healthcare organizations look to better manage clinical information, their search often leads them to an electronic medical record (EMR). But many have also learned that their EMR can be augmented when it's complimented by an enterprise content management (ECM) solution like Hyland's OnBase. Across the hospital, ambulatory and physician practice locations of Hyland's more than 900 healthcare customers, the EMR most frequently integrated with OnBase is Epic's solutions. To help these organizations leverage this integration, and learn how OnBase can be used in other departments across the healthcare enterprise, Hyland Software hosted its third user forum for customers who use OnBase and Epic.

"Our established OnBase integration with Epic is the result of continuous collaboration with the significant number of mutual customers who leverage it. With their feedback, we're able to continually evolve the solutions and how they're implemented, giving the ever-growing amount of OnBase customers that use the two solutions the best possible ECM and EMR integration," said Susan deCathelineau, senior manager, healthcare solutions for Hyland Software.

"This user forum was a chance for our customers to share best practices and learn more about how to use their current integration even better, working with each other as well as representatives from both vendors. The forum was also an opportunity for Hyland to get feedback from these customers, feedback that we can incorporate into our OnBase development roadmap and implementation model," said deCathelineau.

The forum, which took place August 2-4, focused on how to get the most value from an OnBase solution by using it across the enterprise. This included discussions on best practices for integrating OnBase with the EMR, as well as other line of business systems like Lawson and PeopleSoft implemented in departments from accounts payable to human resources. More than 60 end users participated, representing over 31 healthcare organizations.
