Digitise Your Care Records: How Ascentas Group Can Help You Improve Patient Care Outcomes
In the care industry, maintaining comprehensive and accurate patient records is essential to providing high-quality care. Traditional paper-based record-keeping can pose several challenges for care providers, such as limited accessibility, the risk of loss, and time-consuming processes. In today’s digital age, digitising patient records can help care providers overcome these challenges, enabling them to deliver better patient care outcomes.
Ascentas Group offers document management solutions that can help care providers digitise patient records, providing them with secure, accessible, and efficient record-keeping systems.
The Importance of Document Management in the Care Industry
The care industry is a highly regulated sector that deals with sensitive patient information. Care providers are required to maintain comprehensive patient records, including medical histories, care plans, medications, and other essential information. These records must be up-to-date, accurate, and accessible by care providers at all times.
Examples of documents that are important for the care industry include:
Patient medical records
Staff training records
Medication administration records
Paper-based record-keeping systems are no longer efficient in today’s digital age. They can lead to several challenges, including difficulty in accessing records quickly, the risk of records being lost or stolen, and significant time and resources required to manage paper records effectively. Document management solutions can help care providers overcome these challenges by digitising patient records.
The Benefits of Digitising Patient Records with Ascentas Group
Ascentas Group provides comprehensive document management solutions that can help care providers digitise patient records. Here are the benefits of digitising patient records with Ascentas Group:
Digitising patient records allows care providers to access patient information from any location, enabling them to provide timely and effective care. Laserfiche ECM software provides features that enable users to access documents easily and efficiently, regardless of their physical location. The system allows authorised users to access documents remotely from any device, reducing the need for physical access to documents in a specific location. Laserfiche Cloud also provides features such as document search and retrieval, document sharing, and collaboration, which make it easier for users to find and work with the documents they need, improving overall document accessibility.
Digitising patient records can significantly improve accuracy by eliminating the need for manual data entry and reducing the risk of errors. Laserfiche Cloud helps improve accuracy by automating document capture, indexing, and processing, freeing up staff time to focus on delivering high-quality care. This reduces the risk of errors that may occur when manual data entry is required. Laserfiche also provides intelligent document recognition (IDR) and optical character recognition (OCR) capabilities that enable the system to read and interpret the content of scanned documents, reducing the need for manual data entry.
Compliance and Security
Laserfiche provides a range of compliance and security features that enable organisations to meet regulatory requirements and protect sensitive data. Laserfiche offers advanced security features, such as encryption, access controls, and audit trails, which help protect documents and ensure that they are accessed only by authorised users. Laserfiche also provides compliance features that support standards such as HIPAA, FERPA, GDPR, and others.
In the care industry, disasters such as fires, floods, or other natural disasters can pose a significant risk to patient records. Laserfiche offers disaster recovery features that enable organisations to recover documents and data in the event of a disaster or outage. Laserfiche provides backup and restore capabilities, as well as replication and failover options that help ensure that documents are available and accessible even in the event of a catastrophic event.
Digitising patient records can lead to significant cost savings by reducing the need for physical storage space, eliminating the cost of paper and other supplies, and freeing up staff time to focus on delivering high-quality care. Laserfiche Cloud helps organisations save costs by reducing manual processes and paper-based workflows. The system automates many document-related tasks, such as document capture, indexing, and processing, which reduces the need for manual labour. Laserfiche Cloud also provides features that enable remote access and collaboration, reducing the need for physical document storage and physical retrieval.
