Healthcare providers are digitizing paper documents to improve their handling of medical records, decrease reliance on paper and reduce costs while complying with important and critical healthcare regulations.
UDOCX Scan to SharePoint App digitizes paper documents, enriches them with OCR (optical character recognition) and metadata, and routes them securely to document management systems such as MS SharePoint for further processing (workflow), indexing and archiving. Healthcare providers face incomparable challenges when compared to other organizations today. Healthcare providers must deal with a whole eco-system of suppliers, doctors, insurance companies, patients, third parties and other health care providers.
Important information such as patient medical records must be shared securely and retrieved quickly while complying with regulations such as DPA , HIPAA, PIPEDA and the Data Protection Directive (EU). Manual document processes (exchanging of information, different order processes, redirecting of patients) must be automated to offer an optimized degree of service to patients, partners and associates, health insurance companies and physicians to compete with competitive entities.
It is an enormous challenge to IT (Information Technology ) departments to optimize and digitize entire document workflows while still complying with healthcare regulations to secure both the information and the infrastructure. Microsoft SharePoint is used by healthcare providers for document workflow, reporting, search and document management, allowing them to benefit from document automation and collaboration while maintaining security, accessibility and compliancy.
UDOCX Scan to SharePoint App digitizes all paper documents from multifunctional devices (Ricoh, Sharp, Xerox) in a structured way by capturing, enriching them with optical character recognition and metadata, and accurately storing them into MSSharePoint for further processing, workflow, or archiving. UDOCX user authentication provides restricted access to critical information and all activities are tracked and logged, ensuring both compliancy and accountability.
