RPA, or robotic process automation, is the solution to some of healthcare’s biggest problems and is used across industries to streamline business processes and reduce time spent on repetitive, routine tasks. RPA completes these tasks faster and without errors, freeing up human time better spent on higher-level work. And because healthcare is filled with these repetitive, low-value administrative tasks – and has a pressing need for change – it’s a perfect candidate for widespread RPA. In healthcare today, waste and inefficiency permeate every level of the system, trickling down into patient care priorities and initiatives. Healthcare workers are reporting unparalleled burnout and health system cost pressures are mounting. As the amount of paperwork and number of programs used becomes more unmanageable, leaders are looking for a way to transform operations, and many are turning to RPA.
Healthcare looks quite different than it did just a few short years ago. The COVID-19 crisis has created a distinct “before” and “after” for the world, and especially for healthcare.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is revolutionizing healthcare data analytics and changing the way we predict, learn and act based on insights gained through AI-powered data models.
