Healthcare Industry Solutions
Extract Systems has the solution for your toughest health information exchange challenges that prevent access to the full patient story and compromise patient safety and privacy.
After launching an electronic health record (EHR) or electronic document management system (EDMS), many hospitals and clinics still have paper in their patient medical records, including documentation from outside facilities.
In fact, a typical 100-bed hospital scans an average of 1 million document images a year. For larger-scale health systems, the number of scanned images can exceed 4 million a year. Of the types of documents that still exist in paper form, approximately half are essential for patient care at the time they are created or presented by the patient.
Our HealthyData platform is tailored to your specific needs. Listed below are just a few of its capabilities:
Automated entry of external lab results
Getting valuable data out of external reports, results, screenings, and other unstructured sources
Automated order processing
Extracting valuable data for quality, population health, meaningful use, and compliance needs
The Extract advantage
Clinical staff at all levels routinely express frustration with the increasing demands of data entry and searching through paper or electronic documents attached to the patient record to find small, but valuable details to make the right clinical decisions. Extract reduces clinician time spent on searching, opening, processing and comprehending documents and also allows them to trend lab results in the EMR alongside other key data points.
COST REDUCTIONS AND INCREASED EFFICIENCIES
Our software makes it fast and easy to access the information you need. Our solution has, on average, eliminated 50% of the staff time required to deliver discrete data to the EMR. By reducing the time wasted digging through paper documents, Extract allows you to focus more energy on the needs of the patient.
DATA QUALITY AND COMPLETENESS
Extract can accurately identify over 80% of the clinically-actionable data trapped inside faxed clinical documents, eliminating the vast majority of manual data entry. Results and original source documents will be routed and appropriately linked to orders in the EMR without needing to be routed through the HIM department. Accurate, structured clinical data in the EMR not only improves access for clinicians, but also facilitates the exchange of information.
IMPLEMENTATION requires Minimal IT staff resources
We are dedicated to your success. Our skilled professionals will guide you through every step of the installation process. This commitment has shaped every aspect of our training, implementation, and ongoing support methodology. Upon contract signing, you will be assigned a dedicated project manager and technical lead who will gain a thorough understanding of your needs, and assist you throughout implementation.
INTEGRATION WITH EXISTING EMR SYSTEMS
Our software will seamlessly integrate with and enhance current or planned EHR initiatives. The HealthyData platform does not replace a facility’s EMR or EDMS, but instead complements these systems and provides significant improvements in productivity and quality.
SPEED OF ACCESS TO INFORMATION
Extract significantly reduces the time it takes for lab results and associated source documents to reach the EMR after the fax has been received. This empowers the patient’s care team to act more responsively when abnormal results are encountered and also allows clinicians across the enterprise to make more informed decisions for their patients.
