Automated data classification is an essential feature of the HCM which takes over Workflow Management, making the HCM distinct from other 'generic' solutions (e.g. VNA or DMS). Paper records, as we well know, follow a learned system which facilitates the staff's daily tasks. A key feature of paper records is classifying documents which provide an unequivocal allocation of information. Data can only be found through this classification as it specifies what is being looked for.
Another attribute of a HCM system is that this classification has been brought into the digital environment. This not only increases acceptance by users, but also ensures that no treatment information is overlooked. Simple keywording is not sufficient here as it cannot ensure that all data will be displayed.
