RPA in Healthcare Workwear Management
Published on: January 5, 2023
The healthcare industry of today faces many pressures, including high costs and incredibly high volume, as well as stringent regulations. These challenges can pose a threat to the quality and urgency of patient care. Automation can help hospitals and other medical centers overcome these obstacles. Robotic process automation (RPA) is a subset of business process management that uses software and robots to quickly, efficiently, and accurately perform repetitive tasks. This article will explain the benefits and use cases for RPA in healthcare workwear management.
What is RPA?
RPA is a process matched with a technological solution that automates manual, repeatable tasks. It uses artificial intelligence (AI) to mimic the actions of a human who would have done the same job in the past. The technology is designed to work with existing systems and applications, reducing the need for IT resources, cutting costs, optimizing workflows, and freeing up employees’ time for more valuable work. Additionally, RPA decreases human errors. According to the Institute for Robotic Process Automation & AI, people make mistakes at least ten times per 100 steps. RPA bots, don’t.
Use cases for RPA in Healthcare
Gartner predicts that 50% of US healthcare providers will implement robotic process automation (RPA) in the next three years. Gartner explains, “Healthcare providers are caught in a perfect storm of shrinking payments, improving outcomes, enhancing experience, and bolstering credentials. Any technology implemented to help these providers improve delivery and streamline operations must also optimize costs.”
RPA is a technology that offers many use cases for healthcare providers, including:
- Patient registration and scheduling
- Payments processing
- Record management
- Managing inventory and patient flow
- Monitoring patient care plans
- Customer service and remote care
- Healthcare workwear management
