Healthcare automation enhances patient care and reduces costs

What can automation do for you?

The pandemic changed the urgency healthcare organizations had for embracing automation. 

Today, it’s not a matter of “when” a healthcare system or facility will implement healthcare automation tools – it’s a matter of “how quickly” the best one can be identified and then be implemented.

Recently, Ricoh sponsored a HIMSS Market Intelligence survey of hospital and health system leaders. 

The results show that there had been a movement toward automation and that the intent to streamline through automation has clearly accelerated.

Highlights from the HIMSS Market Intelligence survey

The survey covered a wide range of questions. Some of the highlights included:

  • The top four most important factors in automation were 1) affordability, 2) integration capability, 3) improve revenue collection, and 4) access to real-time data.

  • Billing looks to remain a top patient touchpoint for years to come.

  • Revenue cycle management remains one of the most manual processes.

We’ve summarized many of the findings in the infographic below.
