Summit Healthcare Solutions Enable Hospitals to Maximize ROI and Improve Workflows Across the Entire Organization
Braintree, MA, February 9, 2021 – Summit Healthcare, a leading provider of healthcare systems automation, business continuity, and integration technology, today announced multiple new signings from clients looking to improve processes, increase efficiencies, and significantly reduce costs with the Summit Scripting Toolkit (SST). Summit’s Robotic Process Automation (RPA) platform, which can be combined with optional add-on Professional Services, can improve workflows in any department across healthcare organizations. Automating tasks with SST reduces expenses, increases productivity, and does it in a fraction of the time it would take employees while mitigating human error and enhancing security.
Now more than ever hospitals are looking for ways to control rising costs while maintaining staff levels and providing the best patient care. Understanding the potential impact of implementing a powerful automation platform across health systems can significantly jump start an organization’s bottom line. Most hospitals see an ROI in months, if not weeks, after implementing an automation solution.
Summit Scripting Toolkit (SST)
SST is the most versatile and cost-effective RPA solution available in healthcare. From the simplest to the most complex processes, SST provides a powerful, user-friendly solution that enables organizations to streamline repetitive data entry tasks and get more value out of employees. By employing RPA to assist with workloads, staff can be better-allocated to more rewarding and cognitive projects. This leads to an improvement in employee satisfaction and alleviates staff burnout.
SST provides a full-featured, proven workflow automation technology complete with all the functionality necessary for programmers and non-programmers alike to build, test, and deploy workflows from a single desktop application. It can connect to virtually any system: all major EHR vendors, known complex, proprietary Windows or Web-based applications and remote hosted sessions including Citrix environments. The latest product enhancements offer integration with the Summit Exchange platform which includes the Summit Enterprise Dashboard for remote monitoring, centralized management, and troubleshooting of the organization’s workflows.
Automating tasks goes beyond the IT department. SST can be applied throughout the hospital or health system to support a multitude of departments and job functions. Developing intelligent workflows in finance/AP, materials management, HR/payroll, and administrative departments of the hospital will further contribute to lowering operating costs, improving compliance and accuracy, and boosting productivity for a maximum ROI.
