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.
If you’ve ever worked, in any capacity, in the administrative part of a healthcare facility, then the high cost of keeping all the files accounted for was evident throughout your stay. There were probably many long nights spent retrieving documents, ensuring that compliance mandates were being met, billing, insurance issues and coding.
Protecting the privacy and security of health information requires more than a lock and a key. In order to keep your patients' records secured, you must take advantage of the benefits of digital record keeping.
Are you embarrassed when your patients see that big pile of records waiting to be filed?
