Document Management Now Available with Mediware’s® Popular KnowledgeTrak™ Platform

LENEXA, Kan., June 30, 2015 – Mediware Information Systems, Inc., a provider of comprehensive healthcare software, announces the release of an innovative document management solution, KnowledgeTrak™ DMS. With this addition to the venerable KnowledgeTrak family, users in the highly regulated blood, biologics and cellular therapy industries can enjoy the simplicity of automated document management capabilities.

Over the last two years, Mediware has worked with prominent hospitals, blood centers and cellular therapy facilities to design and beta test the new document management tool. As a result, customers can be assured that the new functionality will provide complete document management functionality to complement the training and competency management features of KnowledgeTrak LMS.

Doug Norvell, KnowledgeTrak product manager, says that the DMS module offers a completely new way to manage documents. “Through the application of LEAN concepts, new technology, and the creativity of our customers, we have significantly improved the efficiency and effectiveness of document management for staff and the subject matter experts they rely on.”

KnowledgeTrak DMS also provides integrated document management capabilities across Mediware’s blood management applications, including HCLL™ Transfusion, Transtem™ and LifeTrak®. It allows users of those applications to search and access SOPs, complete assignments, sign-off on competencies and review or approve document changes without leaving their clinical applications.

“The integrated functionality among applications allows us to help customers across multiple segments of our industry, streamline processes and become more efficient,” notes Thomas Mann, president and CEO of Mediware. “This multiplies the benefits for our customers,” he adds.
Like KnowledgeTrak LMS, the new DMS module is extremely intuitive and easy to use. It is being released for general availability June 30, 2015.
