Distribute Documents Where They Are Needed
EScription document distribution provides configurable role-based distribution rules allowing flexible document distribution to a broad spectrum of recipients; the dictating clinician, the attending clinician, or the referring clinician, are just a few of the roles that can be set up and used on a dictation-specific basis. When completed with the eScription transcription tools, documents are distributed based on the distribution rules and the associated clinician preferences. In addition, distribution rules can be configured to distribute documents directly to the printer on the patient's floor, or to specific locations such as the hospital's medical records department. Distribution is triggered automatically when documents are completed, assuring they arrive where they need to be in the shortest amount of time.
Flexible Print Templates
Print templates keep documents consistently formatted and easy to read, and EScription document distribution keeps templates easy to administer. EScription document distribution makes use of the 'business entity' concept within the eScription transcription tools that enables an organization to define certain departments, clinics, specialty centers, or hospital locations, as separate business entities for administering transcription services. Through the power of business entities, the eScription document distribution Template Manager can reduce the myriad templates needed in other systems into a few, flexible print templates that may be used across work types, clinicians, departments and facilities. Supervisors use simple Microsoft Word formatting to add or remove logos, change fonts, or insert specific patient visit content to create attractive, branded, and easy-to-read notes and correspondence. With Template Manager, users can edit, test, and deploy print template changes quickly and easily, and control for printing issues, such as orphan lines and blank pages.
Comprehensive Audit Trail
Quickly view the distribution history of all documents through the EScription document distribution Audit Trail. Tracked through the single EMon® administrative console, along with other aspects of a document's history (pended, signed, etc.) the Audit Trail feature indicates when documents were successfully printed or faxed, and logs successful and failed transmissions.
eScription document distribution, as part of the complete eScription platform, reduces the number of different systems administrators need to manage. eScription document distribution can be part of a single workflow and a single system that starts at dictation and ends with electronic signature and distribution. Access and update the Distribution Rules, Clinician Profiles, Template Manager, and Audit Trail from the same EMon system used with the eScription transcription tools.
Fast, Reliable Printing and Faxing
Reduce waiting by having eScription document distribution process multiple distribution jobs simultaneously. Parallel processing speeds printing and reduces bottlenecks. In addition, eScription document distribution reduces distribution failures and time-consuming manual retries by automatically logging and retrying failed prints and faxes. Automating retries assures that the flow of work does not get interrupted.
Integrated with eScription E-Signature
Use eScription e-signature to trigger distributions when documents are electronically signed. eScription e-signature and eScription document distribution are designed to integrate with each other and can stand side-by-side in the document workflow. In addition, clinicians can use eScription e-signature to add and remove CCs from the distribution list of a document, allowing distribution to be tailored to the requirements of each patient visit.
Easy to Implement
Organizations using the eScription transcription tools benefit from a simple upgrade process to add document distribution. The same clinician profiles already in use for computer aided medical transcription are easily expanded to support document distribution, eliminating the need for multiple user databases. eScription document distribution is designed to work with all components of the complete eScription platform, including EMon and eScription e-signature, creating a single, highly efficient system for document creation and distribution throughout the health care enterprise.
