"EMR Enablement" from Iron Mountain

Close on the heels of Kodak's announcement recently of a new health records solution, Iron Mountain this week released its "EMR Enablement Solution" to link historical and modern (electronic) records as hospitals climb the adoption curve of EMR systems.

The press release states:
While EMR systems promise to improve patient care and cut treatment costs, healthcare organizations are uncertain how to implement digital records using existing resources and without disrupting patient care. The Iron Mountain EMR Enablement Solution makes the paper-to-EMR transition easier and faster for hospitals by helping them identify which records to digitize and which to destroy.
This solution is geared towards hospitals and emphasizes outsourced document management, in sharp contrast to Kodak which appears to target smaller practices using existing staff for in-house scanning. Iron Mountain has a very large customer base and claims the solution is already operational at many of its clients, including Lahey Clinic.
