eWebHealth customers making the switch to OnBase
September 23, 2010
Triumph HealthCare is up-and-running on the enterprise content management (ECM) software suite, several more healthcare organizations have made the decision to convert
CLEVELAND – September 23, 2010 – Bound by federal requirements and deadlines, technology is a serious matter for healthcare providers. So it was natural that those who’d been considering – or had recently chosen – eWebHealth were concerned when Hyland Software purchased it in March. But not for long. These organizations, including Houston, Texas-based Triumph HealthCare, quickly discovered that OnBase, Hyland’s ECM (http://www.hyland.com) software, met their needs – and then some. It’s why, despite initially selecting eWebHealth, Triumph HealthCare has implemented OnBase OnLine for Healthcare.
“Originally, we set our sights on a health information management (HIM) workflow solution that could be hosted,” said Belinda Simpson, assistant vice president of HIM for Triumph HealthCare. “But when we learned more about OnBase, we decided it was an opportunity for us. While eWebHealth had a strong HIM workflow product, OnBase OnLine for Healthcare offers that plus much more. Its integrated document management abilities allow us to centrally store information and sync it with our different systems, including MEDITECH. When the project is complete, physicians across our 33 sites will have access to all the content they need, when they need it from wherever they are.”
Other healthcare providers that have decided to convert to OnBase include St. Francis Medical Center and Clear Lake Regional Medical Center. They all plan to deploy OnBase OnLine for Healthcare, an option that allows them to use the ECM software with a lower cost upfront, and much more quickly, than an on-premise solution. Given the tight deadlines to meet “meaningful use” criteria, fast implementation times are more important than ever for healthcare providers.
“Adding eWebHealth gave us more resources to devote to our already strong hosted healthcare solutions,” said Susan deCathelineau, healthcare solutions manager for Hyland Software. “The timing was perfect, too. Thanks to ‘meaningful use’ requirement deadlines and smaller IT staffs and budgets, more organizations are taking a serious look at hosted ECM. But it’s not only the interest that’s changing – it’s also perceived as being more viable. Gone, as evidenced by Triumph’s 33-site deployment, are the security concerns and misconception that it’s only for small physician practices.”
