Healthcare meets RPA
When we hear the word ‘RPA’, the first thing we associate it with is finance and manufacturing. However, the healthcare industry has slowly emerged as one of the adopters of RPA in their processes. Healthcare organizations face a daunting challenge in sourcing and integrating information from various internal and external sources such as clinical applications, lab systems, insurance portals, and many other disparate systems.
For long, the entire process of integrating the information was labor-centric. However, with RPA into play, integrating information has become simpler, leaving the medical staff with time to focus on providing best healthcare facilities to the patients.
Benefits of RPA in healthcare industry
- Saves time in integrating patient’s data from disparate systems
- Saves cost on excessive spend on resources by automating several healthcare processes
- Automates repetitive tasks freeing employees to focus on patient care
- Improves revenue cycle management by improving the billing efficiency and reducing write-offs
