Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software programs initially emerged as company management systems for IT and Financial sector for integrating all departments of a single organisation and enable them to work in synergy. However, as they evolved to be customizable to suit a specific workflow of a business, they swiftly found their applications in all sectors of society.
Healthcare industry isn’t holding back either. Today, most of the successful medical centres that are known to provide swift and effective services use an ERP to integrate all the applications used by all their departments. The automated management system functions create a virtually centralised base for every department to use without interrupting each other’s tasks while keeping everyone updated on the status of all tasks. It allows live sharing of information and quick response to critical tasks, and provide patient-friendly services.
Here are some more fundamental features that an ERP system provides to streamline and manage your hospital efficiently:
Patients hate the wait. A lot of hospitals face criticism for poor appointment management which lead to delays and cancellations by patients. With the rising number of patients visiting your hospital, it is evident that your reception will face such problems.
ERP software links the schedule of all departments and automatically updates every one of their daily appointments.
This system dramatically reduces the workload of reception and ensures that no patient misses their appointed time and receives quick service.
Traditionally, doctors create a physical medical file for all patients which they are supposed to carry upon every visit. This system fails in helping the patient while increasing the burden of maintaining that file at all times.
E-Records are an easy and efficient way of storing all patient data. With the help of this ERP application, the doctors gain unrestricted access to all previous reports and history of a patient.
The patient can simply visit without worrying about any files and receive prompt treatment.
The healthcare industry has one of the most complex financial systems.
With a myriad of government schemes and hospital policies, patients often face problems and delays related to their bills. Also, a hospital is a complex network of several doctors, surgeons, nurses and other staff, and managing the financial expenditure of so many employees becomes extremely painstaking for one financial department.
A fully automated and totally integrated ERP system, however, has pre-programmed algorithms for making complex calculations and generating financial reports more accurately and promptly.
The entire financial structure can be customised to a hospital’s workflow, and E-bills can be generated to facilitate quick discharge and admittance of a patient.
Managing Pharmacy and other inventory:
Running a hospital involves managing a large inventory of medicines, machinery, tools, hygiene equipment, and other peripheral items specific to individual departments.
This distributed storage becomes hard to manage and often leads to a shortage during critical or rush situations.
ERPs provide a universally synchronised inventory management system where all departments can update their inventories simultaneously while the administrative department can manage all of them from a single point.
