Atlanta-based health system utilizes Perceptive Software solutions to make additional patient content accessible directly from the electronic medical record.
Perceptive Software, creator of process and content management products and solutions, announces that Atlanta-based Piedmont Healthcare will deploy Perceptive Software solutions throughout the health system’s five hospitals and 45 physicians’ offices and clinics, in order to bring key content such as scanned insurance cards, digital photographs, physicians notes, etc., directly into Piedmont Healthcare’s Epic Electronic Medical Record System.
Perceptive Software healthcare solutions will complete the paperless medical record at Piedmont Healthcare by delivering all patient content within the context of the Electronic Medical Record (EMR), resulting in a comprehensive patient record that will help Piedmont Healthcare professionals make better clinical, financial and operational decisions.
This enterprise-wide expansion follows Piedmont Healthcare’s initial deployment of Perceptive Software healthcare solutions in 2012, which occurred in conjunction with the launch of its Epic Electronic Medical Record system. The initial deployment covered Piedmont Healthcare’s Newnan Hospital and 15 clinics, in departments such as Health Information Management (HIM), Registration, Patient Finance and Scheduling.
Piedmont Healthcare also currently uses Perceptive Intelligent Capture in accounts payable, while Perceptive Software back office solutions are used in human resources and materials management. These solutions integrate seamlessly with the health system’s PeopleSoft application.
Piedmont Healthcare is targeting the end of 2013 to complete the enterprise rollout of Perceptive Software throughout its remaining hospitals and clinics.
Piedmont Healthcare is also a Lexmark managed print services customer, which enables the healthcare system to standardize and optimize its output environment through additional workflow solutions that will improve employee productivity, support patient care and reduce overall costs.
“Piedmont Healthcare is expanding our use of Perceptive Software solutions throughout our enterprise because they have proven to be a great partner,” said Mark Pasquale, Chief Information Officer, Piedmont Healthcare. “Perceptive Software’s ability to integrate with both our Epic and PeopleSoft systems gives us immediate access to information that once was not easily accessible, allowing our physicians and staff to provide the highest quality of care.”
