For small, rural hospitals and small clinics, administrators must constantly reconsider and optimize the way they the manage the business. This means ensuring that information systems and applications don’t inhibit moving paper and verbal processes as they evolve to digital processes. Organizations struggle to move from paper forms to electronic forms for patient information capture, the foundation of any automated process. This means that the move to ECM (aka content service platforms) has little cost savings and in fact see their processes become more complex as documents move between paper and digital form

These documents are managed by a defined lifecycle that controls authoring, review and approval, training and distribution and effectivity. Automating this lifecycle is critical to maintain compliance and increase efficiency.
