Boosting collaborative abilities is one of the most appealing functions of these systems, PhysBizTech reported. Doctors and medical institutions are now required to move to electronic health records (EHRs), and since they will be spending much more time interacting with digital solutions, it makes sense to incorporate document management software into this interface as well.
Increasing signal strength between labs, clinics, and providers allows for more fluid care of patients and more comprehensive coverage of individuals as they move from one healthcare facility to the next.
This approach works for other industries as well, merging mission-critical functions into a single digital interface. Additionally, this improves wait time for response, movement of files, and accuracy of results. Electronic workflow means businesses also won’t have to pay for another service to handle their files.
McKnight’s reported that this push is what has been driving the healthcare sector and other facets of the corporate world for the past few years. As cloud solutions proliferate in every segment of the business world, EHRs, and can maintain the level of meaningful use and accessibility that federal compliance guidelines require. On top of that, they continually help organizations reduce maintenance and overhead expenses, providing an impressive return on investment.
“When you apply automation to any process, an organization’s workflow will be affected,” Mjad Alwan of the Center for Aging Services Technologies told the source.
As more companies are forced to upgrade to EHRs and other collaborative digital solutions, other industries may see the benefits of these solutions and adopt them for themselves. McKnight’s noted that handling information with electronic workflow management will help companies improve communication and security, among other benefits.
