Healthcare is one of the world's largest industries. During the COVID-19 pandemic, hospitals faced tremendous pressure on bed availability, lab testing, and overall patient care. Never was the need for optimized administrative procedures and shortened billing cycles in healthcare so keenly felt. Hospitals with automated billing and digitized patient records dealt with the surge more effectively. Digitization optimized their staff's efficiency and kept the focus on their core competency—patient care.
Organizations across industries adopted large-scale digitization and at least some automation in the last few years. Healthcare IT faced a host of hurdles in digitization, ranging from patient privacy issues, stringent regulations over records maintenance to institutional stakeholder concerns. This lag is now receding. The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated digital workflow adoption. Increasing demands on healthcare systems, medical workers, and pressure on profile margins pushed up the pace of digitization.

It secures a competitive advantage, increases accountability within the organization, improves operational reliability, and avoids duplication.
We live in a fast-paced virtual world, where document digitization is no longer optional for businesses. And even when business information is digitized, managing a high volume of files is not easy. An efficient EDMS cuts through the disorder and simplifies the document management process. Organizations acknowledge a clear and definite need for an electronic document management system (EDMS) that effectively manages their digital documents. Implementing an EDMS is critical for organizations today. Without the ability to create, process, manage, transfer, and share electronic documentation, they cannot remain competitive or react to dynamic marketplace changes. However, not all document management systems make the cut. Organizations must ensure that certain key features are present in the EDMS solution they deploy. Here's a look at some of these features:
Up until a few years ago, the concept of enterprises going paperless was simply an idea—an aspirational goal. And enterprises did very little groundwork to get there.
