Implementing Intelligent Automation to Optimise Diagnostic Pathways
There is a need to reduce the diagnostic backlog, and improve the flow of patients through diagnostic pathways, to provide timely diagnoses and ensure patients are treated quickly. Intelligent Automation can be implemented to optimise all aspects of diagnostic pathways, and as such, organisations across the NHS are turning to it to automate routine administrative tasks, that significantly enhance productivity and allow clinicians to spend more time diagnosing and treating patients.
Patient data often needs to be transferred between imaging systems and electronic health records; automation can support with the integration between existing systems, ensuring patient data is updated accurately, and in a timely manner. Intelligent Automation is also being used to track patients through their diagnostic pathways – this maximises capacity, guarantees that patients are only seen with a complete clinical diagnostic picture, and avoids unnecessary delays.
