Healthcare digitization growing leaps and bounds

December 28th, 2012 | Posted by Kevin Corley in Workflow

Numerous industries are looking into the many benefits of digitization. Using conversion services to store documents in online archives can help clear out additional office space that would otherwise be taken up by file cabinets, aid in ensuring the records are safe from both accidental and purposeful destruction and back up the information contained within should papers be misplaced.

The healthcare industry is one sector that is slowly but surely embracing the technology. According to Innovation Trail, medical centers in upstate New York are already using this sort of technology, and Innovative Solutions director of health and IT Justin Copie told the source that leaders in the area tend to be innovators. Copie said in the next two to three years, digitization of personal health records is set to soar. 

University of Rochester Medical Center representative Gary Scialdone told the news provider that this is creating new jobs and allowing doctors to readjust their roles.

According to Fox Business, there is still a lot of headway to be made. Citing a Health Affairs Study, the source said that around 55 percent of American doctors use electronic health records now, a number that is predicted to grow in the future.
