How PDF Tools are Digitalizing the Healthcare Industry

Industries throughout the world are reaping the benefits of digital transformation. The urgent push to go digital is particularly seen throughout the healthcare industry. With stringent mandates to adhere to regulatory and HIPPA compliance, medical professionals from administrators to practitioners rely heavily on digital technology to perform their jobs in an effecient and timely manner.

One of the goals at ActivePDF is to simplify the digital transformation of antiquated Electronic Medical Record (EMR) systems by offering industry standard PDF tools that dramatically improve and streamline document management. The ability to create, convert, modify and view PDF documents in high volume and with ease of retrieval, offers a more efficient alternative to the manual documentation processes that is surprisingly still in use by many healthcare practices today.

While most manual EMR systems can be clumsy and time consuming, the AcitvePDF suite of development tools enhances already implemented applications with document management, retrieval, and archiving capabilities. Ease-of-use and a secure storage system are just a few reasons why over 88% of ActivePDF clients retain use of the ActivePDF product suite.

For more than 16 years, progressive healthcare professionals throughout the country have relied on ActivePDF products such as Toolkit, Portal and DocConverter to assist in modifying, managing and maintaining sensitive documents using secure, feature-rich PDF functionality. What's more, the added benefit of mobile high-fidelity viewing has now become less of a convenience and more of a necessity, especially as medical professionals share information over an ever-increasing network.

Building patients’ confidence & loyalty
Google and other search engines make it easy for people to perform detailed online research before choosing a healthcare provider. Online research allows patients to learn about physician’s experience and expertise, as well as how they do business. This includes how the healthcare organization handles documentation and what type of secure EMR is in place. Storing and sharing vital patient data in a secure and confidential environment builds patients’ confidence and loyalty.
