CareTech’s iDocTM Document Imaging Solution to Manage Student Records at Detroit’s Marygrove College

Document Imaging Solution to Facilitate Paper-to-Electronic Transition in Academic Environment

TROY, Mich. – August 31, 2009 – CareTech Solutions, Inc. (www.caretechsolutions.com), an information technology (IT) and Web products and services provider for hospitals and health systems nationwide, announced today that Marygrove College of Detroit, Mich. will use CareTech’s iDocTM document imaging and management solution to help manage student records.

iDoc is a full-featured, Web-based document imaging and management system with workflow tools that securely stores, manages, retrieves and distributes digital and electronic documents in a fully customizable format, and offers secure electronic-signature capabilities anywhere there is Internet access.

“In transitioning to electronic student records, we’ve sought to eliminate the expense of a paper-based system and streamline the records-management process at the same time,” said Bill Johnson, vice president of finance and administration for Marygrove College. “iDoc will provide immediate and secure access to information and help our staff quickly and easily provide the information our students need.”

Traditionally deployed in hospitals, Marygrove College is the second academic institution to use CareTech’s iDoc product, the first being Walsh College of Troy, Mich. Leslie Mack, senior director of CareTech Solutions’ iDoc delivery division, says iDoc’s functionality easily translates to the academic environment.

“Whether in a hospital or an academic institution, the challenges associated with managing information between the two groups are markedly similar, and we’re delighted to count Marygrove College as the second academic institution to manage the paper-to-electronic transition using CareTech’s iDoc solution,” said Mack. “Just as iDoc is used in health information management, financial services and registration settings to manage confidential patient information, it’s also a great fit in academic environments for student records, financial aid and development information, as well as human resources, accounts payable, and contracts and materials management.”

CareTech Solutions’ implementation of the first phase of iDoc at Marygrove College is expected to be complete in mid-September. Other phases will include procurement, accounts payable and human resources.
