Through the Healthcare Industry, a Look at Digital Transformation

In a world of instant file sharing, mobile devices, social media, and other collaborative technologies, today’s employees have become used to information access at the click of a button in their personal lives. But, for some reason, this hasn’t translated into the work environment. In fact, according to The Paperless Project, a grassroots coalition of companies focused on transforming the way organizations use paper and electronic content, 70 to 80 percent of organizations’ processes are still being managed on paper. This is particularly significant in the healthcare industry, where quick access to information can have a critical impact on a patient’s well-being. Hospitals that have not yet gone paperless are missing out on the vital benefits that big data has to offer and keeping themselves mired in cumbersome paperwork and slow processes in a field where every second counts. With the mandate from the federal government to move to electronic healthcare records, or EHRs, having gone into effect nearly two years ago, organizations are making the move to electronic records, which will greatly benefit all parties involved.

According to a recent report from The Association for Information and Image Management, a document and data-capture industry group, 68 percent of survey respondents stated that business at the speed of paper will be unacceptable in just a few years’ time. This is particularly true for the healthcare industry. Paperless organizations benefit from faster speed of response to a variety of actions and activities, resulting in greater efficiency, security, simplicity, accessibility, and time savings. Meaningful use of EHRs is a requirement, and penalties for lack of compliance can be severe. But here’s the reality: Paper will continue to be part of patient records for years to come. And providers of all sizes will need to flow data and context from paper to EHRs well into the future without affecting current processes or patient care.

Meaningful use of EHR, as defined by HealthIT.
