Our partner network is growing: As part of its new strategic focus on the healthcare sector, Iron Mountain is cooperating with OPTIMAL SYSTEMS Vertriebsgesellschaft mbH Berlin to offer joint solutions for the healthcare sector.

Iron Mountain Deutschland GmbH is one of the leading companies in the field of archive management and data security. Iron Mountain’s healthcare solutions span a broad spectrum, from secure data storage to data recovery.

“We are excited about the close collaboration with Iron Mountain. Together, we can offer holistic information management for clinics and hospitals: from the prompt digitization of paper documents to long-term archiving. This also includes our ECM-based solution for the transmission of documents to the medical service of the health insurance companies (MDK),” says Burckhard Romanowski, Head of Sales at OPTIMAL SYSTEMS, which specializes in ECM solutions for the healthcare sector.

Fast digital processing of MDK test processes

At the request of the medical service of the health insurance companies (MDK), a service provider such as a hospital or rehabilitation facility must grant access to the record at any time. MDK test reports must always be answered on time – otherwise significant financial losses are to be expected. Since entry into force of the new test regulations on January 1, 2015, the requested documents must be made available to the MDK within a relatively short time period of four weeks, which is often a major challenge for hospital controlling.

The ECM solutions from OPTIMAL SYSTEMS simplify and accelerate information processes. The MDK special solution enables clinics to process MDK test reports promptly, handle them easily, and complete them on time. An ECM-based workflow ensures reliable notification of all participants and monitors deadlines and results.

“By collaborating with OPTIMAL SYSTEMS, we offer our customers high-performance ECM software that enables them to secure the availability of information throughout the clinic. Clinics benefit from a comprehensive service package for data acquisition, digitization, and electronic document management. The advantages include cost efficiency, data protection, and the fast and reliable transmission of content- and time-critical data,” says Hans-Günter Börgmann, Managing Director of Iron Mountain Deutschland GmbH.
