In the document-intensive, heavily regulated healthcare industry, paper documents present significant challenges for providers and payers alike. One of the key issues: meeting rigorous HIPAA requirements for confidentiality and maintaining a record of health-information disclosures. You need to ensure that only authorized users have access to sensitive information - while ensuring anywhere/anytime secure access for those authorized users. Encryption of patient health information sent over the Internet is now also a requirement. What's more, providers and payers must have physical safeguards to protect health information from fires, floods, and natural/civil disasters. Institutions must also ensure their documents cleanly and smartly integrate with electronic medical records (EMR) initiatives, physician credentialing, and enterprise content management (ECM).
