Addiction Treatment Centers and the True Cost of Manual Records
Addiction Treatment Centers incur several different costs when using manual records. First and foremost the staff costs associated with the assembly and maintenance of the hard copy works out very costly indeed. In addition, simple duplication of the records require paper and copying supplies as well as the staff costs for copying and distribution.
The amount of storage space required to facilitate an Addiction Treatment Center keeping manual records would be better utilized elsewhere, and that's not to mention the possibility of fire or water damage or even the damage from normal day to day handling!
Lost or missing patient test results can be an absolute nightmare, not only because of the expense incurred in staff repeating the tests, but it can be detrimental to the (vulnerable) patient's overall health and/or well being. You also have to consider the fact that another patient (in need) is losing out from such resources effectively being “thrown away”.
Continuing to use manual records in Addiction Treatment Centers will result in needless expense for all concerned.
The Clever Solution to Manual Records
We are pleased to announce that here at TurnKey I.T Solutions we have developed a very clever cloud based management system, specifically designed for Addiction Treatment Centers, which will eliminate the need for manual records and more importantly reduce costs.
Cloud based computing is in itself simply the storing and accessing of data and programs over the internet. Although you will experience some initial costs in implementing a cloud based management system, the costs of records over time will significantly decrease.
When your Addiction Treatment Center team can create, edit and share documents anywhere, any time, they are able to do more together, and do it better. Updates are made in real time (yes, really!) and everyone has full visibility of their collaborations.
How many minutes and/or hours have your Addiction Treatment Center team lost even just trying to find some records? If your Addiction Treatment Center is still relying on manual records, it may just be the time to try something more seamless… You will not look back!
