Of the 1.2 billion clinical documents produced in the United States each year, approximately 60 percent contain valuable information trapped in unstructured documents, such as clinical notes, that are unavailable for clinical use, quality measurement and data mining. Canon has partnered with the leading provider of speech and imaging solutions for healthcare to help integrate paper based documents (unstructured data) into EHR (Electronic Health Record) systems.
The role of MFPs in healthcare is changing. Healthcare providers need a way to automate their paper based workflows into EHRs to help complete a patient’s electronic health record. Canon and Nuance have partnered together to provide a Scan-to-EHR solution that transmits scanned documents from Canon MFPs into EHR applications. By leveraging eCopy ShareScan v5, Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE can successfully scan documents such as lab test results, consult notes and historical records then generate Health Level Seven International (HL7) Clinical Document Architecture (CDA) messages and directly pass them to the EHR.
