Robotics process automation (RPA) is already being used in a number of industries with a proven track record of streamlining various aspects of daily operations while also ensuring success for the long-term.
While RPA is already used in various sectors of healthcare, such as billing, how will RPA make an impact in the future of healthcare?
Healthcare Analysts tell us that RPA is going to be a major factor in healthcare not just in the future but now. McKinsey and many others have named RPA as a top healthcare IT trend in 2020. The healthcare industry is challenged by staffing shortages that are expected to continue. RPA can help take the burden off healthcare organizations improving production and quality.
RPA also addresses another issue: Budget.
RPA is a cost-effective way to ensure high-volume, repetitive tasks are performed accurately. Because the ROI on automation is so quick, typically immediate to 6 months, there is a tremendous financial benefit for organizations adopting this technology.
The repetitive tasks performed by bots are often the same tasks prone to human error and poor employee satisfaction. By automating these tasks, you increase employee satisfaction while making existing staff more productive. When combining the financial benefit, the increased employee satisfaction and the quality, consistency and scalability of bots, RPA means a better bottom line for healthcare practices.
- To summarize, automation yields:
- Speedy ROI with significant long-term financial benefits
- Improved employee satisfaction;
- Improved quality and accuracy;
- Unlimited scalability;
- 100% transparency into production.
