Administrative burden takes up a substantial deal of providers’ time. It is no wonder, therefore, that any spared time from reduced administrative work could be used to focus on providing better care.
Automation technologies help reduce the burden of manual, time-consuming administrative tasks, freeing up healthcare professionals to focus on direct patient care. A good example of this are cloud-based speech recognition solutions. They allow healthcare professionals to dictate patient notes directly into electronic health record (EHR) systems, which substantially speeds up the process.
The importance of automation and its potential to transform healthcare has been recognized by digital officers throughout the industry. It is being strongly incorporated in strategic planning within many health systems. The demand for automation solutions is rising and with good reason, given how profoundly it can improve care management and health care services.
