Learn more about our Release of Information solution.
Whether your facility is a small regional hospital or a multisite IDN, health information management (HIM) is the information hub of your organization. Patient-focused documents and content flow in and out of the department to almost every other patient-focused and administrative area of the facility.
Inefficient HIM processes are time consuming, delay coding turnaround and obstruct patient care. Lexmark solutions enable your team to optimize your HIM processes by capturing, organizing and managing the patient documentation required to deliver care, complete the revenue cycle and fulfill release of information requests.
To complement your electronic medical record (EMR), our solutions integrate seamlessly with health information, clinical and business systems. Users have single-click access to patient documentation within the EMR. Advanced process and content management features help you manage your processes efficiently, benefiting clinicians, staff and patients alike. As a result, you can:
- Simplify chart deficiency tracking with advanced document management features
- Use bar-coding technology to speed medical records scanning and make scanned charts immediately available across your facility
- Enhance remote coding with anytime, anywhere document retrieval
- Streamline release of information requests by enabling staff to easily process requests and collect chart components
- Support patient privacy and RAC compliance with comprehensive document tracking and security features

systems to manage patient-related content and medical records.

and makes it difficult to fulfill requirements related to the RAC (Recovery Audit
