Ambir will showcase an exciting future view into paperless processing of patient information and approvals

Ambir Technology, an industry leader in digital capture and document management solutions, presents its full line of athenahealth approved solutions for digitizing hardcopy medical information at athenahealth User Conference 2014, UC 2014, April 29-May 1 in Boston. The annual user conference brings together physicians, practice managers and healthcare IT experts who use athenahealth’s software and cloud-based worldwide network for Electronic Health Records management, practice management, and patient care communications to increase the quality and speed of care.

“As healthcare professionals continue to streamline and quicken the pace of care delivery, they require efficient, accurate and secure ways to digitize their records to meet meaningful use requirements,” said Mike O’Leary, CEO of Ambir Technology. “Ambir’s athenahealth approved solutions are complete hardware and software packages featuring plug-and-play operation into athenahealth’s software to automatically digitize hardcopy information from insurance and identification cards, medical records and charts, seamlessly incorporating it into the athenahealth network.

“In addition to showcasing our solutions, all of which are available today, visitors to our booth can see a technical demonstration of an exciting concept for totally paperless and secure processing of patient information and approvals,” said O’Leary. “While a concept today, this glimpse into the future could soon revolutionize the way patient information is obtained, approved and managed.”
