Lexmark International, Inc. has announced the availability of Lexmark Point of Care Scanning for Healthcare, a solution that enables providers to quickly and easily capture paper medical records and incorporate them into health information management (HIM) workflow, helping providers meet HIMSS Stage 7 requirements.
Lexmark Point of Care Scanning for HIMSS Stage 7 uses the Lexmark smart multifunction printer (MFP) to streamline, simplify and enhance the capture of clinical information, right at the point of care. The Lexmark Smart MFP customisable interface ensures clinical users need minimal training. Fast capture at the MFP allows for batch capture of multiple records without PC-based workstations, expensive software or desktop scanners. Users can also review the entire document at the MFP before sending to HIM workflow for better patient record quality. Lexmark MFPs feature advanced scanning capability to help prevent double feeds, misfeeds, skewed images and more.
Ken Woodruff, Lexmark Healthcare Industry Director said, “according to HIMSS Analytics, a key requirement in reaching HIMSS Stage 7 requirements involves the capture of paper medical records. To be validated as a Stage 7 hospital, all clinically relevant information must exist electronically in the EMR within 24 hours of creation. Lexmark Point of Care Scanning provides hospitals a user-friendly, cost-efficient way to simplify this information capture and meet this HIMSS Stage 7 requirement.
“The solution can be configured to meet hospitals wherever they are on the HIMSS Stage 7 attainment process and integrate with their existing systems.”
Lexmark Point of Care Scanning for Healthcare is a custom solution available via Lexmark authorised resellers or directly from Lexmark.
