Addiction Treatment Centers and Lost Productivity from Manual Records Part 2
Addiction Treatment Centers are susceptible to lost productivity simply because of the fact that they predominately use manual records. There always will be various inaccuracies when relying on paper records, regardless of what systems you may (think you) have in place.
Searches for misplaced manual records will always waste time, and therefore precious staff costs and resources. In addition, it will always take time for a member of an Addiction Center's team to deliver manual records to a specific location, and there is no getting away from that fact. If manual records are not readily available, those team members responsible for the filing of documentation may have to make several attempts before being able to complete their (supposedly simple) task.
Furthermore there is no flexibility with manual records. Addiction Treatment Centers with manual records cannot sort data fields, so the only option is a manual review. Not only are manual reviews labour intensive, and therefore costly, but inaccuracies can easily occur.
Continuing to use manual records in Addiction Treatment Centers will always result in lost productivity. Worst case scenario - it could potentially be catastrophic if a team member makes a decision on a patient's treatment plan with inadequate information.
The Cloud Based Solution to Lost Productivity
A cloud based management system, specifically designed for Addiction Treatment Centers, is the solution to this lost productivity from the continued use of and reliance on manual records.
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, it will pay for itself over time. In addition, with cloud based computing you pay by monthly subscription, and therefore only pay for what you need and indeed use.
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 and everyone has full visibility of their collaborations.
If your Addiction Treatment Center is still relying on manual records, it may just be the time to try something more seamless… No records will be lost, no records will be misfiled, lost productivity will be a thing of the past!
