Hospitals and elderly care institutions work constantly to increase efficiency and gain economies of scale in order to offer quality care within budget. They manage vast quantities of information contained in patient files and administrative documents.
The accounting system automates the incoming flow of invoices that relate to pharmacies, commercial goods and general expenses. They are scanned or read in as e-invoices, captured automatically, verified and then sent to ERP software for accounting treatment.
Pharmacy staff compare the invoices with the pharmacy’s details. These services are in the cloud or on-premises. Invoices can be located in a secure archive that complies with all legal requirements. This eliminates the need to keep paper invoices. All institutions, no matter their size, can be catered for due to the links that are already in place with existing suppliers of ERP, accounting and pharmacy software.
Customers and patients receive large volumes of sales invoices. Paper invoices are converted seamlessly to digital format. Patients are free to set their own preferences on a portal, and receive their documents by e-mail or in their portal or preferred app (such as Doccle and POM). Digitalisation has turned out to be very popular and the institutions are enjoying instant benefits of this digital innovation:
- customers are satisfied with the additional service
- there have been considerable cost-savings
Medical files are voluminous and, therefore, their digital management is vitally important for both ongoing and completed admissions. Scanning systems enable the documents to be digitalised efficiently at either central or decentral level.
