Today’s health care organizations face the challenge of managing high volumes of documents and data. Clinical outcomes and organizational performance demand immediate access to images and documents during episodes of care and subsequent encounters. Likewise, providers review images during consults with patients and as part of clinical documentation, and care organizations rely on images to protect revenues and minimize expenditures, in support of incident management and in defense of health care acquired conditions. As Meaningful Use drives the need for efficient patient data capture, affecting income and cost containment, many organizations are turning to enterprise content management (ECM) solutions while leveraging existing IT objectives and technology.

We have applications enterprise wide in healthcare, and here is a brief overview in wound care as an example.

For exploration of this solution and to further this discussion I recommend you have this group of people involved : -
Electronic Health Records and integration team representation.
Department heads.

Wound Care is the natural fit, as they handle and manage many images and in many instances have a primitive workflow. Our solution simplifies this greatly.

Simplest, Secure, Accurate Workflow, Managing and Attaching Photo Images to your EMR.

This is a natural fit within the specific area of Wound and Burns Care departments/ units - Images are required large percentage of the time on each encounter and need to be documented.
Currently you probably have camera's however a manually intensive workflow. Challenges are in the capture component pertaining to a seamless method of attaching photo images to EMR's in a timely way. (Typically wound care departments handle 100's of photo's per week, they assign someone a task to manually upload these images and attach them to the specific patient record)

The Clinical Imaging Source- Dynamic Capture Camera is the perfect vehicle and solution to simplify this process.

Please also find a list of other departments that also utilize the camera in the healthcare space.
Surgical Suites
Neo Natal
Burn ward
Clinic intake
