AnMed Health System has selected McKesson’s Horizon Enterprise Content Manager™ solution to further automate previously paper-based processes based on its previous success with an electronic document imaging solution. This powerful, easy-to-use tool provides a single, secure location for storage and access to various content types including documents, files, electronic reports, and rich media like audio, video and computer-based training programs.

AnMed Health turned to McKesson for enterprise content management after a successful implementation of McKesson’s Horizon Patient Folder document management solution. With the Horizon Patient Folder solution, AnMed Health was able to eliminate paper in the medical records storage process, decrease chart signing deficiency rates, and streamline the revenue cycle. The Anderson, S.C., organization decided to further extend its paperless processes into the laboratory and human resources departments with Horizon Enterprise Content Manager.

Manson explained, Our commitment to quality has always been a key strategy for AnMed Health, and we are very proud of our ISO 9000 laboratory registration. We chose Horizon Enterprise Content Manager to automate this process and reduce operational and supply costs.  It should be a perfect solution to meet our needs to streamline the paper processes and help us improve our ISO quality system

The first solution of its kind designed specifically for healthcare, Horizon Enterprise Content Manager delivers state-of-the-art content capture, simple deployment, and ease of administration. It also provides a scaleable enterprise approach that streamlines processes and drives down operational costs for any department of the healthcare organization.

In addition, this solution integrates to a variety of McKesson and non-McKesson applications to deliver immediate, online access to enterprise documents and content. By providing immediate access to business-critical information, it enables faster, more accurate decisions without requiring users log in to other applications or computers. The resulting increase in productivity helps drive lower operational costs, increased ability to take advantage of fast-pay vendor discounts, and overall revenue improvements from all departments.

Bill Kloes, vice president and general manager, Enterprise Imaging Group, McKesson Provider Technologies said, This is a tool that addresses the growing challenge organizations like AnMed Health face in centrally managing and creating immediate, secure access to mission-critical content.  As a full enterprise solution, its capabilities drive value in all departments in which high volumes of unstructured content are required by their business processes or systems
