SSM Health Upgrades Patient Care With Hyland Suite

Hyland Software, a developer of enterprise document management software, has announced that SSM Health Care has deployed its OnBase in March, 2008.

As a core component of SSM's electronic health record (EHR) project, OnBase already has made physicians more efficient, allowing each physician to see approximately three more patients on a daily basis.

Hyland said, its OnBase will give physicians access to the most up-to-date medical records and supporting documentation making patient information such as medication requirements or previous illnesses more accurate and physicians more effective.

Because the implementation date was set with a strict deadline of March 30, 2008, SSM had to find a solution that was both flexible and scalable. With OnBase's capability to be implemented in phases while also integrating with EPIC, Microsoft SharePoint and SAP, SSM was able to reach the deadline while staying within budget.
