AP Document Imaging Software Avoids Three Common Cash Leaks, Part 5

Friday, June 17th, 2011

In part 4 of this blog post we discussed how document imaging software allows AP departments to unite data quickly and cost effectively. In this blog post we will discuss how document imaging software allows AP departments to get rid of paper and why AP departments should implement document imaging software.

Get Rid of Paper in AP. Replace it With Electronic Document Agility.

Paper gets lost. It’s also expensive to buy, store, ship, and manage separately from the data it supports in line-of-business systems. When invoices and other documents are captured electronically upon receipt to the organization, those costs are eliminated and the documents have more value. They can be placed where users intuitively expect to find them – such as in ERP transaction, financial reporting or asset management screens – saving time and resources:

  • Instantly track document history and status, including who has seen it and decisions or approvals.
  • Resolve vendor disputes instantly with supporting documents at users’ fingertips; including purchase orders, invoices, and packing slips.
  • Replace costly, error-prone paper processes with automated records management.

Why Document Imaging Software?

With document imaging software solutions for AP, you can eliminate the bottlenecks that add time, cost and risk to AP. Process automation with electronic document management allows you to process more documents in less time.

  • Collect every early pay discount available and eliminate late payment penalties.
  • Manage volume increases without additional labor by automating routine tasks.
  • Automate AP processes with dynamic accrual monitoring that ties to your ERP.
  • Know where you stand. Get ERP data with the documents to back it, instantly.

AP Record Management Software Avoids Three Common Cash Leaks, Part 4

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

In part 3 of this blog post we discussed how record management software allows organizations to automate AP processes with Imaging and Workflow, leaving no discount on the table. In this blog post we will discuss how record management software allows these organizations to unite data quickly and cost effectively.

Unite the Data in your ERP Systems Quickly and Cost Effectively. Stop Duplicate Work. Lack of system integration leads to duplicate data entry and wasted search time. It also increases the risk of errors and adds excessive time to AP cycles. Even so, unification initiatives often stall due to the high cost of custom coding, infrastructure, and ongoing IT maintenance. It doesn’t have to be that way. With record management software solutions for AP:

  • Eliminate redundant data entry and turn hundreds of hours of mundane tasks into automatic system operations with integrated document management and workflow. Premises-based, SaaS, or hosted offerings extend flexibility without custom coding.
  • Easily share data among systems and auto-index documents upon receipt to optimize downstream forecasting and strategic planning with real-time reporting.
  • Extend the reach and investment of your ERP. Trigger AP workflows as soon as a document is scanned or electronically imported into your ERP or record management software.

AP Document Management Software Avoids Three Common Cash Leaks, Part 2

Friday, June 10th, 2011

In part 1 of this blog post we discussed how staying strategic and lean in AP can be critical to the financial health of an organization during both busy and slow periods. In this blog post we will discuss the challenges that organizations face when they attempt to optimize their AP department.

The Challenges

When organizations need to optimize AP, they face inefficiencies in three major areas:

  • Slow approval and payment cycles, which result in missed discounts and late payment penalties.
  • Low visibility resulting from data and documents being stored in separate systems and locations.
  • Fixed costs—paper, duplicate data entry, storage, shipping—don’t add value.

AP Document Management Software Avoids Three Common Cash Leaks

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

Accounts Payable (AP) is a document-driven process. Some invoices are simple, some complex. Some arrive electronically, others through fax machines or the postal service. Despite ERP efficiencies, the manual AP document processes necessary to support ERP data extend cycle times and increase risk of error. Paper processing and approval, duplicate data entry, and lack of effective collaboration often result in missed discounts, late-payment penalties, and inaccurate accruals. Document management software can help.

Staying strategic and lean in AP can be critical to the financial health of an organization during both busy and slow periods. Every discount must be found and every penalty avoided. Organizations look to improve AP processes in slow times in order to prepare for higher activity when productivity is up and payments to suppliers increase.

Arizona Record Management Software Speeds Adoption Time, Part 3

Monday, May 16th, 2011

In part 2 of this blog post we discussed some of the adoption challenges that physicians face. In this blog post we will discuss the solutions that high quality Arizona record management software provide.

Arizona record management software provides a Physician Portal that gives physicians and clinicians the unified patient view they need. It allows for real-time access to information from Meditech and all other clinical systems in a single online view. That way, they need only go to one place for patient information instead of many. They can see lab results, radiology data, pharmacy data (including allergies), discharge summaries, nursing documents, EKGs, PACS images and more.

What’s even better is that this Arizona record management software Physician Portal can be customized by specialty to highlight areas that are clinically relevant to a given physician’s role on the patient’s care team. Physicians automatically see a dashboard view for their specific clinical discipline. The Physician Portal can also be personalized by each physician to meet his or her individual preferences and needs. This frees physicians to do the work they do best instead of wasting time collecting information.

Phoenix Document Management Software Keeps Hospitals Running, Part 2

Monday, April 25th, 2011

In Part 1 of this blog post we discussed how health information systems (HIS) create the foundation for Phoenix document management software in many healthcare organizations by managing the data that keeps hospitals running. We also discussed how Phoenix document management software can benefit healthcare facilities. In this blog post we will continue to discuss the benefits of this software.

Improve patient care with a more complete EHR

Hunting for information steals time away from nurses and physicians, time that could be spent with patients. Clinicians need all of their patients’ information to be readily accessible from one place. And they need more than just scanned paper. They also need quick access to photos, clinical images, faxes, e-mails – any relevant content. Phoenix document management software captures all of those missing pieces of the patient record with ease.

With this software, physicians and nurses need simply click a link in the HIS and all information relevant to that patient opens up. With the extra time, they can see more patients and spend more time with them. And the more time spent on patient care, the better the outcome.

Speed processes hospital-wide with automated workflows

Storing documents electronically goes a long way in extending an HIS. But the real difference comes when you automate processes. That’s where hospitals find the greatest efficiency. Even the best manual paper processes don’t let staff work as fast as they would like. Phoenix document management software automates workflows and speeds processes in clinical areas, the revenue cycle and administrative areas like accounts payable and human resources.

With Phoenix document management software, hospitals can automatically route documents to the right people at the right time. For example, this software can route AP invoices for payment review. Automatic e-mail notifications keep invoices moving so they’re never forgotten on someone’s desk. Without waiting for needed documents, staff can process more invoices in the same amount of time. This allows them to spend their time working with vendors, not paper. Similar efficiencies can extend to processes throughout your hospital.

Move towards meaningful use by encouraging adoption

Adoption is vitally important to the success of any software implementation. With the new federal healthcare IT standards, achieving and maintaining high adoption rates is key to achieve meaningful use. That means there’s more pressure than ever on EHR adoption.

A solution that only offers part of what users need can slow down adoption. Users are left wondering, “Why don’t I have everything I need?” or “Why do I still have to go looking for information?” On the other hand, when something really makes sense to them, they’re fast converts. With Phoenix document management software for HIS, that’s the kind of solution they have. All the information they need is at their fingertips, making EHR adoption an easy choice for them.

Arizona Document Management Software Keeps Hospitals Running

Friday, April 22nd, 2011

Health information systems (HIS) create the foundation for Arizona document management software in many healthcare organizations by managing the data that keeps hospitals running. However, as hospitals move toward more mature electronic health records (EHRs) and work to keep up with a tight economy, they find that they still need to eliminate the paper and manual processes that the HIS can’t.

Scanning and archiving isn’t enough to solve all of your paper problems.

  • Paper, forms, faxes, photos and clinical images can make up to 25 percent of a patient record, but they can be hard for an HIS to capture, preventing a complete EHR
  • Manual, paper processes don’t just slow clinicians down; they hold back departments across a healthcare organization, costing time and money
  • Without a solution that provides every piece of functionality the users need, acceptance and adoption will founder

With the Arizona document management software for HIS solution, users no longer have to go anywhere else to get what they need – no more searching through file folders, no more separate software. Arizona document management software captures content, no matter where it originates. Whether scanned from paper or imported from other applications, users have what they need to do their jobs well and do them quickly. They can simply click in the HIS to access all the documents they need.

Arizona document management software can also integrate with nearly any other software application and automate processes hospital-wide.
