OnBase by Hyland wins Melbourne Health

Melbourne Health has implemented OnBase by Hyland hosted in the Hyland Cloud to digitise its health records and data in advance of a future electronic medical record (EMR) system tender and anticipated integration. Additionally, OnBase will be deployed in the Finance department to support back-office functions, such as payroll.

OnBase technology is currently leveraged to scan and capture patient information from third-party clinical repositories and present critical data in a single, secure location for Melbourne Health users to immediately access from anywhere across the hospital system. Clinicians securely view patient records through the OnBase Patient Window directly or via integration with the Parkville Precinct clinical viewer, which unites patient electronic records generated by Melbourne Health, The Royal Women’s Hospital and Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.

“The flexibility of OnBase was central to our decision to select and implement the technology in both clinical and administrative applications, enabling our users to have immediate and secure access to critical information,” said Rhonda Carroll, Director of Information and Performance at Melbourne Health.

“OnBase is crucial to our current scanning operations and workflow functionalities, and it will be a critical component to our future integration with an EMR.”

In addition to digitising health records, OnBase was recently selected to help optimise some payroll functionality in the Finance department at Melbourne Health.

“Melbourne Health is a stellar example for healthcare organisations striving to streamline processes and improve patient care,” said Susan deCathelineau, Vice President, global healthcare sales and services at Hyland.

“The smart ways in which they have deployed OnBase now and plans for the future applications will pave the way for successful integrations, which ultimately equal cost savings and benefits to all Melbourne Health stakeholders – most importantly, the patients.”
