Healthcare providers all over the world are struggling to achieve two objective: quality patient care and cost reduction. To this end, healthcare institutions are interested to invest more in upgrading their ERP systems to better the accessibility and quality of patient care. Additionally, bringing down clinical errors and increasing healthcare providers’ productivity are key motivations to adopt ERP solutions.
The regular influx of patents and several technologies made it essential for hospitals and other healthcare institutions to integrate patient database with crucial information on employees and doctors. Doctors and clinicians require real-time information on their patients’ diagnostic reports to facilitate the communication and make their treatment and therapies more effective. Additionally, different departments in hospitals require automated solutions to integrate their core services, support services and back-office operations. Cutting down operational cost and overhead is one of the key motivations for adopting ERP solution. It is vitally important to streamline information across laboratory system, radiology, pharmacy, picture archiving, (PACS) patients’ electronic medical records (EMRs) and communication system. On the other hand, patients get access to the consolidated information of their medical reports to timely schedule the appointments and instantly make decisions.
