Healthcare Practices Can Now Achieve Meaningful Use with Pen and Paper
Nashville, TN (February 27, 2012) — Shareable Ink®, an enterprise cloud computing company that transforms paper documentation to structured data, today announced three new partnerships with leading EHR vendors that will further the company’s reach in delivering a reliable, portable and easy to implement electronic data capture solution that works with existing physician workflows. The agreements with Greenway Medical Technologies, Inc., NextEMR, VoiceHIT, and an existing partnership with Allscripts, signal the demand within the physician practice marketplace for a flexible technology that can be used in any care setting to help compliance with Meaningful Use (MU) requirements.
Providers and patients utilize Shareable Ink to document in their customary fashion, using natural input tools, such as digital pens and iPads, without compromising productivity. Clinical and business rules embedded into familiar forms deliver immediate feedback and help to ensure forms are complete and compliant. The data is instantaneously transferred into the EHR, as if typed in via keyboard.
Greenway Medical Technologies provides innovative EHR, ambulatory healthcare and clinical research business solutions and services to more than 33,000 healthcare providers nationwide. nextEMR® is a revolutionary new, easy to use, centralized and entirely web-based EMR and Practice Management (PM) solution for healthcare practices of any size and configuration. VoiceHIT’s Better Day EHR is a web-based software platform that uses predictive modeling, and third-party applications and devices to leverage the power of data to prompt action, facilitate collaboration and proactively manage health. With 180,000 physician users, Allscripts provides innovative solutions that empower all stakeholders across the healthcare continuum to deliver world-class outcomes.
“Each partnership represents a different opportunity to have a greater impact on EHR adoption, particularly when many physicians know they need an EHR but are hesitant to deploy a new technology within an established, well-running practice workflow,” said Stephen S. Hau, President and CEO, Shareable Ink. “Shareable Ink represents a pragmatic approach to electronic health records that delivers structured and actionable data at any point in the patient encounter – from patient forms in the waiting room to clinician data capture – with no change in workflow for providers.”
