The shift to value-based care and the subsequent increased focus on patient outcomes requires patient-centred information that crosses time and care settings. Unfortunately, despite large technology investments, clinical blind spots still exist.
Images from oncology, pathology, dermatology, ophthalmology and endoscopy are often stored in siloed departmental systems — or worse on hard drives, CDs or USBs. These important videos and images don’t have patient demographics associated with them and they are not linked to the EPR, meaning providers do not even know they exist.
These silos create serious gaps in the patient record, hurt clinician productivity and put the security and privacy of patient information at risk. As the volume and diversity of clinical data and the devices involved in capture proliferate, the problem will continue to grow.
Capture, manage and view specialty content across the enterprise
Specialty Clinical Image Management (SCIM) from Hyland Healthcare brings together industry-leading technology for image capture, storage management and viewing into a cost effective and simple to implement solution. It offers the consistency and security of a centralised enterprise imaging platform without the large upfront investment.
With SCIM, specialty departments across the healthcare organisation can capture any image format, including video, into a centrally managed clinical archive and deliver it to clinicians through the enterprise viewer. SCIM reduces departmental information silos and the security and patient privacy risks that accompany them.
