Five benefits of remote workflows in healthcare.

Want to create a more efficient workplace? Here are five benefits remote workflows can bring to your healthcare operation.

Limit the number of employees on site.

Healthcare providers deal with viruses and diseases on a daily basis. The fewer people you have in the office means fewer people exposed to contagions. Remote workflows can help limit the spread of pathogens by keeping some employees off-site.

Better security compliance.

Because employees can’t share workstations or read confidential physical files, you have improved control over employee access to protected health information (PHI).

Since you can track employee access at each touchpoint, remote workflows are more secure and will help your healthcare facility maintain HIPAA compliance.

Easier recruiting.

When employees don’t have to commute, you can expand your recruiting area to include more people. Finding help is hard enough; don’t limit your recruiting efforts to your immediate area.

Many employees enjoy the perks of remote work, so once you do find the perfect applicants, you have a better chance of keeping those new hires around for longer. Employees who enjoy their positions are less likely to leave.

Save money.

With fewer employees in the office, you won’t need to use as many resources or maintain as much office space, reducing your material usage and possibly your facility costs as well.

In addition to saving on physical materials and space, you may also save on labor costs with fewer absences and reduced turnover. When employees can work from home, they won’t have to call out as much.

Boost productivity.

Remote work promotes more schedule flexibility. Employees can put in the hours necessary to get the job done, rather than what they can do during office hours, which means they’re more productive.

It also streamlines workflows. Instead of printing, scanning, and filing, employees can fill out paperwork from their computers. For paperwork that requires authorization, your employees can even create an electronic signature in Word to sign with the click of a button.

And, if your healthcare enterprise uses integration software like Workday or ServiceNow, you’ll find that Adobe Acrobat Sign Solutions fits seamlessly into your digital workflows for even greater efficiency.
