Your healthcare practice is solid, but how long has it been since you reconsidered processes?
First of all, most clinics and hospitals are continuously improving the patient experience. One of the simplest ways to do this is to reduce paperwork and complicated forms and handouts through document management.
There’s an even better reason to consider document management services – cost savings. According to Beckers Hospital Review, administrative costs at hospitals and clinics can account for more than 25% of expenses.
If that’s a percentage you would like to reduce, read on for some answers to too much paperwork and too much money spent on it.
Security is both obvious: password protection, hidden confidential files, and reliable disaster recovery solutions.
However, document management also improves security by detailing the paper trail: access points (with time and date) are assigned to each document, so issues or breaches are more accessible to identify and fix.
Patient access to resources, records, billing, and test results is critical to operations. Make it easier for patients to retrieve what they need without compromising privacy or compliance.
Patient satisfaction dramatically improves when patients know how to access what they need online and can quickly navigate to the documents. Be one of the healthcare providers that understand this and meets patients where they are.
Don’t hit the same roadblock many healthcare practices get to when systems are too complicated to update technology. Stay on top of new tech solutions with document management. Electronic files and organization make it much easier to shift to the next program or software, so you don’t lose time or patients.
Healthcare is changing every day. If your hospital or practice ignores technology updates, you could be on the sidelines of growth without even knowing it.
As healthcare becomes more patient-friendly and accessible, it’s critical that your organization keeps up with being online and in the digital world.
