Despite the advances in modern automated receiving and delivery software, far too many healthcare facilities still cling to their outdated manual logs or paper systems, or they manually enter their data into a database. Not only are these options incredibly time-consuming, but it’s leaving you wide open to human error. A missed keystroke, or forgetting to enter a package at all, is all too possible.
An automated receiving and delivery system won’t just simplify and centralize your tracking process, but it will also save resources and time, which will save your healthcare facility some serious money in the long run. Not only that, but an automated receiving and delivery system can offer your hospital or clinic a huge return on investment, or ROI. In fact, this typically occurs within the first nine to twelve months after initial implementation.
A typical healthcare facility will enjoy not just one, but two types of ROI by implementing an automated receiving and delivery system.
- Operational Efficiency — When you introduce an automated receiving and delivery system into your hospital or clinic, your systems become more efficient almost instantly. Streamlining the receiving, delivery, and tracking of your facility’s packages will improve your clinic or hospital’s procedures. Your costs will be cut, labor reduced, and the initial outlay for the software system can be recouped in less than twelve months. As a matter of fact, we’ve had clients boast that within three years, their ROI was over 200%!
- Productivity and Accountability — Tracking each package at each step, from the moment it arrives to your facility to the point that the recipient signs for it, ensures that you’ll spend a lot less time trying to locate packages that were left behind on a cart, hidden behind equipment, or even left on the desk of the recipient without a signature. Your employees will be free to tackle other, more pressing, tasks.
When each member of your staff is able to determine the status of an important package, there will be a significant decrease in the number of phone calls about lost or missing packages. As a matter of fact, some of our clients say that there was a 99% reduction in missing packages.
