Healthcare innovation continues to evolve and strengthen care access and delivery. At HIMSS 2018, healthcare industry leaders will come together to further drive this innovation and create new initiatives for the future. However, year after year, the topic of EHR’s and the many current challenges surrounding the effective exchange of patient health information between hospitals and health systems still remains a pressing issue.
With the opportunity for the world to connect on health innovation this March 5 – 9th at HIMSS, it’s time for healthcare to abandon outdated technology and “kill the fax.” For good reason, most industries left the antiquated fax machine behind decades ago. But it’s no secret that healthcare has been the slowest industry to digitize processes and is still heavily reliant on fax technology to send information between health institutions. In fact, according to a recent report, fax machines account for 75 percent of all medical communication.
New telemedicine applications are now available to enhance the exchange of personal health information. For example, CaptureProof plugs into the whole health system with a HIPAA-secure solution that seamlessly facilitates the capturing, comparing and sharing of medical images and video to enable provider-to-provider and provider-to-patient visual communication, decoupling medical care from time and location. Providers can benefit from the turnkey solution’s seamless patient health information exchange or embed the CaptureProof viewer into any EHR or other patient empowerment platforms.
Patients are empowered with easy access the Smart Medical Camera™ to enable medical-grade photos and videos that help securely tell their own health story with a complete visual health record. Healthcare providers can practice at the top of their license through more accurate triage, longitudinal tracking, unified health monitoring and patient-centric care. By deploying a digital health strategy through an application that transfers information right through a user’s smartphone, visual narratives can help providers track health over time, better managing care and improving patient outcomes.
With new generations entering the healthcare industry as both providers and patients, they are seeking a faster, more secure way to share patient data and records, all the while avoiding a paper jam. The time is now to kill the fax. At HIMSS18, come take a swing at the fax machine piñata at CaptureProof's HIMSS booth #6041 on March 6-7th at 5 pm PST and March 8 at 3 pm PST!
