Kodak & eHealthFiles Provide Digital Health Records Solution
Rochester, NY (May 2009) - Medical facilities in need of electronic medical records require affordable, easy-to- implement, secure, and user-friendly systems that can transform paper records into an efficient digital workflow. eHealthFiles, Inc., a member of Kodak’s Independent Software Vendor Program, works collaboratively with physicians and software engineers to develop effective applications for meeting regulations, driving efficiency and providing cost savings. KODAK Scanners and Software will be used with eHealthFiles Clinical and Practice Management Software to provide hospitals, doctors’ offices and clinics with a comprehensive technology solution to manage patient data electronically.
“Our team of engineers and experienced physicians has worked to develop a suite of practice management (PM) and electronic medical records applications to help healthcare professionals create efficient, convenient methods for managing patient information and improve the quality of healthcare,” said Sandeep Govil, M.D., President, eHealthFiles, Inc. “Working with Kodak furthers our capability to provide customers with accurate, high-quality electronic documents that drive automation across multiple processes, making it easier to share and access patients’ clinical information.”
Efforts by companies like eHealthFiles and Kodak are helping advance medical records technology to make electronic medical records (EMR) achievable for more medical offices. According to The New England Journal of Medicine, only about 17 percent of U.S. physicians currently utilize computerized patient records. While cost and implementation commonly create challenges for medical offices, the solutions from eHealthFiles and Kodak provide the scalability to meet functional requirements and budget constraints while also offering flexibility for future growth.
According to a survey by the Medical Records Institute, document imaging will
drive the digitization of unstructured paper documents received from third
parties and integrate them into EMR systems. KODAK Scanners and KODAK Capture
Pro Software provides eHealthFiles with advanced document imaging capabilities
and simplified ease of use to help streamline the process of extracting data
from these unstructured paper documents.
“Our customers in the healthcare market continue to seek highly effective technology solutions that help them meet critical regulations, and advance how they’re able to meet the needs of patients and the demands of employees,” said Brian Bagan, Director, Business Development, Document Imaging, Business Solutions and Services, Eastman Kodak Company
