How Robotic Processing Automation Can Improve Healthcare at Scale
RPA isn’t just a boon for patient-facing organizations—healthcare vendors are getting in on the action, too. For example, the company I work for faced the daunting challenge of transferring over 1 million pieces of patient data from one EMR to another. As any medical professional can attest, switching EMRs is a notoriously time-consuming process. So, we invested in RPA to bring efficiency to an otherwise manual and laborious task. In the end, we saved valuable time—and a significant chunk of change.
What makes RPA so impactful isn’t its ability to bolster bottom lines, but rather, its scalability. And to improve health care in the long run, we need innovations—like intelligent automation—that enable our industry’s stakeholders to move beyond the minutiae and empower them to focus their efforts on creating change at scale.
