Every industry across the world is getting impacted one way or the other with the COVID-19 outbreak. Healthcare organizations in particular are experiencing drastic shifts in demand as they are challenged with the need to provide prompt support to an overwhelming number of patients. These unprecedented circumstances translate into significant issues in the front and back office operations, including long response times, documentation backlogs, supply chain bottlenecks, and employee burden and absenteeism.
In order to mitigate these challenges, healthcare organizations around the world are accelerating the adoption of process automation technologies such as Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to automate multiple time-sensitive, high-volume, manual activities to speed up response times to patients, vendors and employees.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is approving organizations to become testing sites (labs, Walgreens, hospitals, etc.). One of the largest hospitals in the U.S., set up and deployed an attended robot in 48 hours that checks the patient data and registers them in 14-16 seconds.
At COVID-19 testing sites, test results must be logged in different systems to report to infection control and the IPC (or regional equivalent). Admin work takes nurses up to 50% of their time, and this process is especially cumbersome.
Due to COVID-19, a hygienic company has a 10x influx of orders of hand sanitizer. The team recently added 20 unattended robots to handle the volume, and they might add more robots in the coming days to continue to meeting a growing market need.
In the midst of COVID-19, employers need to keep tabs on their employees’ health. Health screenings can help keep track of employee health and well-being. This is an important function of most customer so business continuity plans.
UiPath created a robot that scraps multiple data sources online and creates customized content based on where you’re located. The robot then compiles the data into a daily report and brings you the latest updates, help guide on getting tested, and other fact-based helpful resources.
A leading contender for development of a COVID-19 vaccine is in discussions about automating clinical testing data entry across systems and teams with RPA.
