DENVER, CO (Laserfiche) October 11, 2009—Laserfiche today announced its “natural approach to EMR” campaign at the national Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) annual conference to convey to healthcare professionals that EMR can flow naturally with how doctors and practice managers already manage their clinical workflow.
“Practicing medicine is complex enough without software making things more difficult,” said Laserfiche Senior Vice President Chris Wacker. “There are many complicated EMR solutions out there that create more stress for doctors and practice managers, and our natural ‘hybrid’ approach to EMR alleviates that.”
Laserfiche will demonstrate how its simpler, more natural approach to EMR—built on a content management platform—has enabled many practices to scan and store electronic patient records, improve billing processes and reap an impressive ROI (booth #1243). For example, Children’s Respiratory and Critical Care Specialists in Minneapolis, MN, uses its Laserfiche system to handle traditional EMR applications like patient charts and data mining.
“It has served us really well and it didn’t require a total revamping of our internal processes,” said Children’s office IT manager John Stamm. “There are no lost charts, but the biggest plus has been easy access to those documents by multiple people from various locations. Doctors, front office, billing and nursing can all access the same chart at the same time. This is especially important when you have multiple sites.”
He concluded, “Doctors don’t typically like EMR systems because they require major changes in clinical workflow; a content management system does not.”

Since 1987, more than 27,000 organizations worldwide—including healthcare organizations, government agencies and Fortune 1000 companies—have used Laserfiche software to streamline document, records and business process management.
