Cleveland, Ohio – June 27, 2005 – Hyland Software, Inc., developer of the OnBase enterprise content management (ECM) software suite, today announced that it has been awarded an exclusive endorsement from the American Hospital Association (AHA) for its Integrated Document Management system that helps improve revenue cycle management and back office operations.
After nearly a year of evaluation, AHA selected Hyland Software and OnBase Healthcare solutions because of their health care expertise, product functionality and horizontal experience that bring best practices knowledge from other industries into the hospital environment. Also key to the decision is the product’s scaleable and modular architecture that enables hospitals to deploy solutions at the department and enterprise-level. Hospitals can select functionality that suits their needs today but allows them to expand incrementally and to cost-effectively expand and enhance the system as needs grow.
According to Amy Goble, vice president, AHA Solutions, �To thrive, today�s health care organizations must increase the quality of care and service they deliver to patients while lowering operational costs. By digitizing, standardizing, and automating hospital documents, this solution enables hospitals to run more efficiently and cost effectively, managing processes�from input and storage to retrieval and workflow.�
�We are honored that the OnBase Healthcare Solution has been endorsed by the AHA to help its member hospitals,� said Ed McQuiston, director of Healthcare Markets at Hyland. �By managing documents and processes, OnBase allows hospitals to not only improve operational efficiency associated with the revenue cycle but also streamline processes and reduce costs associated with human resources and compliance initiatives.�
