#NHITweek – how HIT advances the missions of healthcare organizations

The most powerful part of health information technology (HIT) is when solutions help organizations advance their missions of leading the way for healthier individuals and communities. When healthcare organizations leverage HIT and empower clinicians to deliver better care in a faster and more cost-effective manner, everyone benefits.

“Happy wife, happy life,” is a phrase my husband uses almost daily. For those of us in HIT, the same applies, except replace the word wife with clinician, administrator or provider.

Customer feedback isn’t just nice, it’s helpful

For me, one of the most rewarding and powerful experiences is to hear success stories from our customers and how they’re using health information management to provide better care. So, in honor of #NHITweek, we’ve compiled some feedback we received at the show regarding how we help healthcare organizations deliver better care, faster.

Here are some of my favorite statements:

“With OnBase, access to documents is 64 times faster than with paper. Before, it took staff seven minutes to retrieve needed documents; now, staff retrieve documents in seven seconds.”

– Jette Kotsis, section manager at Odense University Hospital

“OnBase supplies us with the dependability and automation we require to continue to improve our processes and reduce our reliance on paper and the manpower it requires to manage.”

– Alan Duke, clinical applications analyst at Skagit Valley Hospital

“Having records online with OnBase enables physicians to crunch the process time and spend more time with people. This empowers patients to comment during the visit and provide more information, which contributes to better care.”

– Robert S. Juhasz, D.O. associate medical director at Cleveland Clinic

“What’s special here at MetroHealth is that OnBase has allowed me to leverage my position, to go out and interact more frequently with fire and EMS departments. It also allows me to focus on the mission and vision of MetroHealth, which is the opportunity to serve others.”

– David Yarmesch, EMS coordinator at MetroHealth System
