UW Health Selects Hyland Content Management Software
Hyland Software has announced that UW Health (including University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics) has selected OnBase, its enterprise content management software, to use as part of the academic medical center's electronic medical record by integrating with its current applications.
OnBase will be used in clinical care through integration with current applications. A patient's complete medical record is expected to be available from any UW Health clinical location. The OnBase integration is designed so that UW Health clinicians have access to the information stored natively in other applications and documentation that typically resides outside of an EMR. Those documents will be presented through the OnBase interface with current applications.UW Health may use the document management solution also in the business office, which includes accounts payable, accounts receivable, human resources and legal.
Tim Tegeder, director of healthcare solutions at Hyland Software, said: "By providing instant, secure access to the entire patient record from a single interface, this solution is designed to allow caregivers to work more efficiently and more confidently, knowing they have the information they require just a click away. We are excited to have UW Health join our member community of nearly 700 healthcare customers.
