MMRGlobal and Fujitsu Offer Low-Cost System to Digitize Medical Record
OREANDA-NEWS. June 19, 2012. MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTC: MMRF) and Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc., the market leader in document imaging scanners, announced today a strategic alignment to assist physicians in smaller practices efficiently digitize their medical records and start to meet the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act’s meaningful use requirement to provide patients timely online access to their medical records by the end of 2014.
To help physicians convert from paper-based record-keeping to computerized health records, MMRPro, MMRGlobal’s premiere scanning and Web-based document management technology, is now integrated with the Fujitsu ScanSnap N1800 Network Scanner. Utilizing a proprietary interface created by DocuFi™, the document imaging solution offers smaller physician offices, community hospitals and surgery centers the ability to digitize, store, manage and share medical records without making the significant investment required while transitioning to a full-blown EMR system. MMRPro is also designed with an integrated patient portal, MMRPatientView, and includes the MMR Stimulus Program, which allows doctors the opportunity to earn administrative reimbursements when their patients upgrade from the free portal to a full-featured patented MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record.
“Deploying our network scanning strategy for healthcare providers is seamless to the way an office operates with paper. Additionally, the learning curve to scan, archive and share documents across a physician’s office or in a small hospital is minimal,” said Marni Carmichael, director of business development, Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc. “We’re excited to be a part of offering MMRPro to physicians to help them cost-effectively transition from paper to electronic records to improve their overall workflow and patient care.”
“Fujitsu has a history of providing quality document imaging solutions to its customers,” said Robert H. Lorsch, MMRGlobal Chairman and CEO. “The integration of our patented document imaging system provides physician offices with the necessary tools to easily and affordably digitize their documents in an electronic format and have the ability to securely access patient records remotely using an Internet-connected device, including their iPad.”
The Fujitsu ScanSnap N1800 Network Scanner is designed to simplify document collaboration for all types of organizations, including small and midsize businesses (SMBs), groups within an enterprise and across the front office to the back office. The latest network scanner added to the award-winning line of Fujitsu ScanSnap scanning solutions offers new tools to make digitizing documents simple and specialized training unnecessary, enhanced security features to combat the threat of data compromise, and added flexibility to easily create customizable interface screens for a consistent user experience.
"Our relationship with MMRGlobal and Fujitsu brings a highly automated solution to the patient records management world using ImageRamp™ for MMRGlobal,” said Dave Wilson, president and CEO of DocuFi. “ImageRamp enables touch screen use of the Fujitsu ScanSnap N1800 Network Scanner to provide intelligent reading and xml formatting of patient medical records, stored in 2-D barcode form.
