INTEGRATE SYSTEMS AND WORK PRACTICES
A key strength of imagePROFILE is its ability to tightly integrate with business processes and systems. This means no more searching for information. Duplication costs are eliminated as multiple people can access any one document at the same time.
imagePROFILE has been designed to complement existing workflows and to be integrated with existing line of business applications, such as LIS and LIMS. It can be implemented as a “back end” document archive system to address compliance and legal requirements, or as a fully integrated solution that facilitates re-engineered work practices, efficiently managing documents from capture through to archival.
imagePROFILE can effectively work and be integrated into existing workflows - to obtain benefits you do not have to re-engineer the entire organisation.
IMPROVE DATA ENTRY PRODUCTIVITY & ACCURACY
A key part of handling paper-based requisitions is data entry to the LIS. Managing data entry from paper-based requisitions can become a bottleneck and source of errors within the laboratory process. Data entry operations within a laboratory is not the same as data entry within other industries. There is a far higher demand on accuracy, privacy, compliance and validation of test requests, while maintaining rapid entry to the LIS to meet service needs. Quality data entry is a critical success factor for the laboratory in achieving its service standards and ensuring that the correct tests are performed.
imagePROFILE manages and supports data entry functions, allowing data entry to be distributed to wherever data entry resources are available, and ensuring that errors are minimised.
imagePROFILE delivers an effective compliance solution that meets the stringent demands in healthcare, financial management and for corporate governance. Regardless of whether documents originate externally to the organisation, or internally in support of key business processes, imagePROFILE manages documents from creation to archival, ensuring that the integrity of each document is maintained throughout its life cycle.
imagePROFILE conforms with the compliance requirements and guidelines for pathology laboratories operating in Australia. imagePROFILE implements NPAAC, Medicare and NATA guidelines for the management of pathology and medical information.
Furthermore, imagePROFILE complies with the requirements of the Notice of Information Technology (IT) Standards under the Electronic Transactions Act. This notice specifies the IT standards required for the electronic transmission, scanning, and storage of requests for, and confirmation of requests for, pathology services to approved pathology practitioners pursuant to ss16A and 23DK(1) of the Act, Reg,9A, Health Insurance Regulations (the regulations) and the Health Insurance (Pathology Services) Regulations (the HI(PS) regulations).
As such, imagePROFILE electronic records are recognised as a true record of every pathology service transaction, thereby eliminating the need for maintenance of paper trails. Audits become a simple and stress-free exercise using imagePROFILE.
REMOTE DOCUMENT CAPTURE AND ACCESS
imagePROFILE implements distributed document processing that provides a wide variety of remote document capture configuration options, as well as configuration options to ensure that document retrieval times at remote sites are generally “immediate”, with minimal load on the network. imagePROFILE has been designed to be able to give users fast access to documents, regardless of geographic location.
imagePROFILE delivers solutions for remote document capture and retrieval that enables organisations to discover new operational efficiencies and overcome paper-bound process bottlenecks. The wide range of remote site configuration options offered by imagePROFILE allows the cost of putting remote operations on-line to be kept at a minimum.
INTEGRATED ORDER CAPTURE
Fully integrated with PAMS, imagePROFILE in conjunction with PAMS can be used as a comprehensive and efficient order capture and processing system.
Using PAMS apps such as the Collection Centre app, and Mobile Collections app, order requisitions are easily captured into PAMS as fully validated and verified data, with original requisition forms, and any associated documents, captured via imagePROFILE and attached to the order as form attachments.
Once captured, PAMS may be used to send the validated order information, sample and sample collection information directly to your LIMS for laboratory processing.
DESIGNED FOR SEAMLESS INTEGRATION
imagePROFILE provides an array of flexible integration points that enable it to integrate with a wide variety of healthcare systems, such as Electronic Medical Records (EMR) systems, laboratory information management systems (LIMS), laboratory information systems (LIS), practice management systems, and patient information systems (PIS) – usually without modification to the target system.
This means that implementation costs are substantially reduced as users are presented with their familiar system interface, extended to present a single point of entry for their entire information requirements.
imagePROFILE consists of a suite of scalable applications that can be deployed on your enterprise network environment. Using an “open” architecture, imagePROFILE does not require proprietary hardware, databases, or image storage formats.
Alternatively, you can choose to host your enterprise solution on our secure cloud-based platform anywhere globally, and access imagePROFILE as a service.
