Centricity Practice Solution Document Management allows easy scanning of paper documents while correctly indexing them into the patient’s chart. Centricity Document Management allows clinics to easily scan paper documents, driver’s licenses, etc. and correctly index them directly into the patient’s chart, of which they become a permanent part.
Centricity Document Management provides built-in support for importing observations terms, routing documents, and leveraging Centricity security permissions. Our ImageLink interface enables successful desktop integration with Centricity Document Management or third party image management and display systems.
A user can retrieve indexed documents such as EOBs, HIPAA release, driver’s license, or physician transcription with a single click at the patient or visit level within Centricity Practice Solution.
Additionally, using Biscom or other fax server software, inbound faxes can be routed to Centricity Document Management for indexing. This eliminates the need to print and scan before indexing, saving time and money.

- scanning any paper document into patient health record as a stand‐alone document;
