Time for Clinicians
Focused on integrating solid business principles with sound clinical practices, Northwood embarked on an IT strategy to streamline its administrative functions and to integrate clinical records into one harmonious system using AutoStore® from Kofax and Microsoft SharePoint.
“On average, we handle more than 10,000 documents per week, which are submitted in all sorts of ways. Documents are captured either in batches or individually, each with a unique barcode or a standard optical character recognition [OCR] header on one or more pages. Then they are processed, sorted and split as necessary by the Kofax Solution.”
