Kodak and 4medica Combine EHR Clinical Integration and Document Scanning to Benefit Providers

<p>ROCHESTER, N.Y., July 6, 2011— Kodak and 4medica, a provider of a leading cloud software-as-a-service (SaaS) clinical integration platform, today announced teaming up to help hospitals and physicians efficiently digitize clinical data. The solution helps healthcare providers achieve a consistently complete electronic health record (EHR), facilitate health information exchange and qualify for financial incentives for meaningful use.</p> <p>Kodak will combine its KODAK i2800 Scanner with 4medica’s Integrated Health Record (IHR) solution to create an accessible records management offering for the healthcare community. Using the joint solution, hospital staff and physicians can scan and convert referrals, authorizations, HIPAA patient health information consent forms, clinical notes and other documents from paper into an electronic format. Users can then upload the e-documents to 4medica’s IHR modular platform to: complete a patient’s current inpatient EHR; or build an enterprise-wide, patient-centric record by connecting to the hospital information system and ancillary applications such as laboratory, radiology and pathology.</p> <p>“Our combined solution offers an accessible alternative for providers who are unable to invest in a costly EHR system or still demand paper at some level. The solution helps doctors realize the advantages of digitized medicine by capturing and transmitting scanned data to 4medica’s powerful IHR. The results are improved workflow efficiencies and care coordination,” said Jody Miller, Kodak’s Business Development Director of Health Solutions. “Hospitals and doctors have the flexibility to develop a comprehensive patient record to demonstrate meaningful use until they are able to embrace full automation.”</p>
