In January 2020 Quanton delivered a Robotic Process Automation pilot to live in under five weeks with an initial processing success rate of 78%.
For a sector struggling with skills shortages, it’s an ongoing issue, but New Zealand primary care provider OmniHealth has found one solution which enables it to not only free up medical staff time, but ensure entered data is verified and clean.
In November 2019, OmniHealth took on the contract to handle the aged care practice for Selwyn Foundation, a provider of residential and respite care for the elderly.
The contract sees OmniHealth delivering medical services to three of Selwyn Foundation’s residential care villages, encompassing five residential facilities.
After seeing a patient, medical practitioners are required to enter their notes first into the GP patient management system – MedTech 32. The information then needs to be transferred into a second system, Leecare, an Aged Residential Care system used by Selwyn Retirement Village.
“They’re basically required to double enter all the data,” Garry Green, Quanton Managing Director, says. “The two systems don’t talk to each other, with data having to be retyped, or manually copied and pasted.”
