Mackeen unveils document management solution
Doha, March 10, 2014
Qatar-based Mackeen Information Systems has launched its medical document management solution, a comprehensive archiving and document management system.
It will facilitate quick and reliable access to medical data retrievable at any stage and from any location, said a statement.
The system will help healthcare providers, hospitals, clinics and imaging centres maximise efficiency and minimise cost and risk, it said.
It will enable healthcare services providers to scan and upload both computer generated and handwritten documents onto a computer system, making it available immediately via line-of-business systems, the internet or desktop.
The instant access to information it offers eliminates the tedious process of searching for physical files and stacking them back after use and reduces the amount of required storage space, thus allowing hospitals to utilise their resources for more strategic tasks.
Sameh Abdultawab, business unit manager, said: “In the healthcare sector, reliable access to medical data is highly critical, especially during an emergency or for treatment of chronic illness. If the data is archived via a document management system, a healthcare provider, physician or caregiver can access it seamlessly to make quick, informed decisions that can be lifesaving for a patient.
“Our Medical Document Management Solution will help the healthcare sector improve patient care and clinical workflow by increasing operational efficiency, building transparency, and reducing operating costs.”
The solution also offers improved security due to flexible control over sensitive documents that reduces the possibility of data loss. All the documents are centrally stored, with information backed up in offsite storage facility to provide an effective disaster recovery strategy.
The other key benefits include flexible retrieval and disposal of patient information, policy-based access control, compliance with privacy and regulatory laws, and significant cost reductions. - TradeArabia News Service
