Business Vision New Normal.jpg Healthcare’s Return To “Normal” After COVID-19: Is It Possible?

The coming months will continue to test our healthcare systems in a multitude of ways, but data will be crucial for every level of decision making and long-term success.

  • Tackling Physician Burnout: Using Robotic Process Automation To Offload Repetitive Tasks

    Implementing an RPA initiative to ease physician workloads is easier than you might think.

  • You Can’t Ignore The Fax: Tips For Transitioning Providers To A Digital Fax Solution

    While the fax machine has no shortage of challenges—lack of privacy, misdials and risk of confidentiality breach, throughput challenged, blurry printouts, wasteful—it also has been a tried and true workhorse. Organizations seeking to transition to a more efficient and secure alternative will need to take pragmatic steps to assure an electronic solution works as reliably, easily, and inexpensively as the fax machine.

  • The Role Of AI In Mitigating COVID-19 Confusion

    Much like the pandemic itself, debates surrounding the medical nature of the coronavirus (COVID-19) continue to fester, with much media fanfare. From the clinical conjecture regarding when it might be safe to re-open states across the country to when and where people should be donning facemasks in public, the dichotomy of opinions has been intense and anxiety-inducing. Also, one other COVID-related conversation centers around the discussion of whether the infection is caused by a virus or bacteria.

    Digital transformation has been underway in healthcare for the better part of a decade, and until a few months ago it was a slow-moving transition for many organizations. But that all changed recently with many forced to make rapid pivots (some overnight), and healthcare leaders learned speed is not only possible but necessary if they are to achieve transformation and thrive in the face of uncertainty going forward.

  • Distancing Doesn’t Mean Disconnecting!

    Social distancing. It went from a phrase few people had ever heard to one that’s repeated on the news, via social media, and in private conversations many times a day. And while recommendations to stay a minimum of six feet apart have changed life as we know it, social distancing does not mean that communication with patients should slow down. In fact, it’s the very opposite! Patient communication is more important than ever before.

  • Making The Invisible Visible

    Now, more than ever, optimizing expensive and complex hospital resources like operating rooms (ORs) is a necessity for hospitals and health systems. Maximizing use of open and block time, implementing more cases during prime/staffed hours, and creating more predictable schedules translate into increased OR profitability and more predictable use of “out of OR” resources. All of this directly impacts a hospital’s bottom line.
