An outpatient imaging center in Honolulu, Hawaii, has recently integrated a new module into their systems to begin automating paperless workflows. The center has adopted the solution in order to reap efficiency and productivity improvements.
The Hawaii Advanced Imaging Institute offers radiology services like X-rays and mammograms, which will now be facilitated through paperless processes. The application being implemented into the system can manage the tools to operate the business efficientlywhile also controlling facilities and users, according to RamSoft. The automation will help radiologists focus on improving patient care by eliminating extra, tedious work.
There are many advantages to paperless workflows in business. With an automated data capture solution, organizations can decrease the amount of physical space needed for storing paperwork and find documents easily in a searchable system, according to Demand Media. The paperless effort will also allow multiple users to view the document at the same time, which will improve overall productivity.
According to John Bergquist, of paper automation company Binary Office, paperless workflows save businesses time and money by replacing manual routing with automated, electronic routing – this keeps paperwork from getting lost en-route on somebody’s desk, and enforce business rules to avoid errors. Users can also have recurrent procedures, like orders and approvals, be sent out automatically without the worker having to spend time manually routing forms.
