Recently the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), recognized UC Davis Medical Center with its Stage 7 Award. According to HIMSS “The award represents attainment of the highest level on the HIMSS Electronic Medical Records Adoption Model, which is used to track Electronic Medical Records progress at hospitals and health systems around the nation. Stage 7 places the medical center in the top 1.8 percent of hospitals nationwide in terms of electronic records management use and represents an independent assessment of how well UC Davis has leveraged its clinical technology.”
Many hospitals around the country are working to integrate varying levels of electronic records management systems and associated clinical technologies. Experts in the Healthcare Industry rely on DataBank, a National leader in providing Medical Records Scanning Services and Electronic Document Management (EDM) Solutions.
“UC Davis Medical Center operates in a paperless environment with any paper in use, such as code-blue documentation, scanned into the EMR within 30 minutes. In fact, the hospital deploys roaming scanning teams, going from unit to unit to verify that scanning is fast and accurate,” said Hoyt, executive vice president of HIMSS Analytics in a press release. DataBank provided healthcare document management software and document scanning system solutions and a dedicated staff to help contribute to this accomplishment. DataBank harnessed the OnBase software solution, integrating it with Epic Electronic Medical Records, allowing for a more robust and complete health record.
DataBank also has a dedicated, contracted staff onsite working in the medical center’s HIM department. The DataBank staff performs tasks such as: prepping medical records, scanning and indexing and performing verification work to insure that the patient record is correct in the system.
