Sound Mental Health is now using the document control software Document Locator by ColumbiaSoft. Document Locator provides instant access to patient-related information and electronic routing of patient files.

“At issue are important concerns addressed by technology that can have a positive impact on quality of care, and ColumbiaSoft’s document control software has made a difference at Sound Mental Health,” said Dian Wells, Sound Mental Health's Health Information Technology Director. “How quickly a doctor has access to all the information he or she needs to make sound treatment decisions; How much administrative time is liberated and made available for additional patient care; How fast critical healthcare information is routed to the professionals who need it; these are all areas where ColumbiaSoft’s Document Locator has had a positive impact.”

Sound Mental Health was determined to eliminate the last streams of paper in their healthcare organization. A series of solutions were deployed to recognize and convert the paper into digital files, and automate the workflow with notifications. The solutions were integrated to the existing electronic medical records (EMR) system.

Even though Sound Mental Health already had an EMR system, there were still unavoidable streams of paper in certain operations, such as paper records that were generated outside the organization, patient supplied paper documents, and physicians’ notes. Now, after the information is converted to digital, it is fully searchable and easily routed in electronic workflows.
