Automation is a big word and an even bigger concept in the world of health care. It’s important to remember that there are varying degrees of automation though, particularly when it comes to one key operational process in hospitals: physician time tracking and payments. More specifically, the process of having physicians log time for administrative duties on hospital contracts, such as medical directorships, teaching, co-management, etc. One way to automate this process might be to use excel file templates to log and submit time for approvals. Another might be to give a physician an application to track their time. But if we’re talking about full automation of this process, what does that look like and how does it benefit all parties involved? Take a peek at the seven benefits we’ve identified that are directly related to an automated physician time log process.
Automation is a word that is thrown around quite often. In health care though, particularly when it comes to the operational processes of a hospital, automation can make a huge difference in terms of physician satisfaction, compliance and time savings for everyone involved.
