Importance of Effective Clinical Operation Optimization

In recent years rapid technological innovations have played a critical role in several verticals to optimize their performance by using several innovative CRM, and LMS software in their respective verticals. Likewise, a Document Management System i.e. DMS is what helps hospitals streamline their operations and improve their efficiency.

A DMS is used to track, manage and store documents, which results in the reduction of paper usage. A DMS is capable of storing records that can be created and modified by different users. It helps hospitals serve their patients much more efficiently. With recent technology, we are able to convert this into an “Electronic DMS” , a software system that organizes and stores different kinds of documents.

Having an electronic document management system in hospitals not only helps the administrators and healthcare providers but also patients on several fronts. It streamlines billing processes, allows lab results and other form sharing, and improves behind-the-scenes functioning – which results in an overall increase in the hospital’s efficiency among all departments.

“Having an Electronic DMS in a hospital streamlines everything…”

To justify the above saying, let's look at the top four reasons that solidify the need for a document management system in hospitals.

  1. It Saves Money

    A DMS drastically reduces the use of physical material and equipment, such as paper, printers, ink cartridges, etc. Moreover, DMS also reduces the amount of storage space needed by shifting it to online storage and totally removing pressure on hospitals to devote floors to record-keeping. All patient records stay on the servers – either on-premises or in the cloud. It can also reduce employee costs (fewer are needed), as well as retrieval feels.

  2. Greater Security & Compliance

    You can lose or damage paper documents in case of fires, mold, flooding, or other types of disasters. With redundant storage features and disaster recovery solutions, your data remains safe and secure at all times. Also, all the files in your system benefit from a detailed chain of custody, in which employee names and timestamps are automatically assigned at each stage of processing. You can also put in place access rights for sensitive patient data so that only those authorized can access it. Facilities that use an electronic document management system can easily follow medical compliance & regulations.

  3. Faster Processing with Minimum Errors

    Physically retrieving paper documents from archives and delivering them to the departments requesting them is a time-consuming process. A digitized document management system reduces retrieval time to seconds – with no physical effort. Since everyone has access to the same electronic medical record, any department can access the documents without the need to photocopy them. Should your DMS allow file segmentation, your billing department can update payment information, and the healthcare workers can update medical data at the same time. Also, some platforms allow real-time collaboration, in which users can make simultaneous changes to the same record without creating mismatched edits. Every record displays the most recent and accurate information – thereby ensuring fewer errors and redundancies.

  4. Improves Patient’s Experience

    It improves the patient experience – With a document management system in place, you can improve the overall functioning of your hospital and give your patients a positive experience. When properly implemented, a DMS can lower operating costs, as well as significantly reduce errors, processing times, and privacy leaks.

In this time of intense competition among hospitals – as well as an increasing focus on the patient experience and patient privacy – a DMS is a necessity for every healthcare facility.
