FileOn Signs Multi-Year Agreement with Norwalk Hospital (CT) to provide Real-time Patient Care Information System


Norwalk, CT -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/09/2005 -- Under the terms of this agreement, FileOn will implement the FileOn eLibrary Patient Care System to automate patient records routing and access.

Says Ron Bleiberg, Vice President of Products and Services for FileOn; “The FileOn eLibrary will provide the ability to scan, barcode and route paperwork from the time a patient arrives at the admitting desk in the Emergency Department through the time a patient is discharged.”

“The FileOn eLibrary will enable Norwalk Hospital to reduce current costs and at the same time enhance patient care,” says Anowar Shahjahan, FileOn President. “The system will enable Doctors in different areas of the Hospital to simultaneously view and consult on patient information in order to determine the proper treatment. This will speed up the current process of having the paperwork move with the patient at real-time.” Mr. Shahjahan adds, “All patient information at the Emergency Department is scanned, automatically routed into proper folders using FileOn HL7 Service, meta data is attached to scanned documents and files secured in a SAN data repository, in a HIPAA compliant manner.”

The FileOn eLibrary is a scalable WEB-based document management solution. The eLibrary supports both distributed desktop and centralized scanning operations. Documents of all format types can be stored electronically in a user defined file structure for access any time, from anywhere using key word search on both title and content. Features include auto-indexing, OCR, barcode-based document routing, HL7 web service, email integration, PDF splitter, file sharing, collaboration, active directory based security and self-service user administration. The eLibrary is based on XML and .NET architecture.
