Lake Regional Health System (LRHS) partners with HITS Scanning Solutions to implement a Scanning and Archival Solution. This interim solution has allowed LRHS to provide timely health information for patient care while managing the days not final billed (DNFB) process within HIM.
Previously challenged by paper documents hampering clinical workflow, LRHS knew we needed to find a way to improve access to clinical data in order to enhance quality patient care and provide information for timely abstracting for our remote coding staff.
HITS Scanning Solutions agreed to partner with LRHS by providing on-site scanning with their staff, which allowed LRHS to redeploy staff members to other areas within the HIM department to prepare for a permanent archival solution within Meditech Client Server Scanning and Archival.
HITS Scanning Solutions worked directly with our Information Technology Department and our LaserFiche vendor to ensure the images could be imported into the LaserFiche repository. Six months into the project, more than 3.2 million images have been successfully loaded into the LaserFiche application.
LRHS has been making great strides as we continue to work toward achieving a “paper-light” environment. This could not be possible without the partnership with HITS Scanning Solutions. Their technical expertise, creativity, customer service, professional knowledge of their on-site representatives and the consultive relationships with staff Registered Health Information Administrators have made the partnership a success.
LRHS is looking forward to a continuing partnership with HITS Scanning Solutions for the Lake Regional Medical Management (LRMM) clinics to ensure a smooth transition to a permanent electronic medical record. It is a pleasure to recommend HITS Scanning Solutions for any outsourcing scanning project.
