In a recent survey of nurses, 80 percent claim that they spend more than half of their time doing paperwork.1 Doctors are feeling the pressure too, as the demand for documenting care continues to increase as legal and regulatory requirements continue to rise.
More time spent on administrative work versus delivering care ultimately impacts an organization’s ability to provide quality care. Healthcare IT leaders are also focused on ensuring that their organizations meet the stringent security requirements associated with compliance standards, such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
As a result, today’s leading healthcare providers and their IT counterparts are being forced to take a more strategic look at their IT strategies and investments. Many of these organizations are turning to Emtec, a leading provider of software and services for more than 40 years, to help leverage technology advancements that can improve the efficiency, accuracy and security of the care their organizations are providing.
The purpose of this paper is to help caregivers and IT leaders better understand how technologies, including smart card solutions, thin-client computing and mobile workstations, can work together to meet the needs of staff members, patients and regulators.
