What are the benefits of RPA in healthcare?

Healthcare is all about people: caring for people and managing the people who care for people. Without the right systems in place and synced up to manage staffing, time and attendance, and HR, patient care can suffer.

Robotic process automation (RPA) helps the healthcare industry interface with disparate systems to manage high-volume processes so healthcare providers can spend their time focusing on providing top-notch care to patients. RPA in healthcare can be used to keep records up to date and synced between providers, pharmacies, labs, and more to ensure everyone is always accessing the most accurate information.

See how RPA works at MD Anderson Cancer Center to keep key applications up-to-date and in-sync without manual effort.

First, they tried to use AutoIT and LaunchPad to orchestrate, but that failed because neither supports secure logon capability or job failure/success notifications, but Automate's powerful application integrations does.

Automate acts as a traffic cop between the three applications, automating 1000s of file and data transfers between the applications every day.
