How Automation Enables Fast Change in the Healthcare Industry


Mark O'Connor

Organizations around the world are all asking the same question: how can we become faster and more agile? In the healthcare industry, speed and time are paramount to delivering the best patient experience. At Mater Misericordiae University Hospital Dublin, the team turned to automation.

The challenge: help combat the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and treat an increasing number of patients – with hundreds of people set to be tested every day. Nurses at the hospital needed  digital assistance to free up their time and take pressure off already overworked staff.

As fast diagnosis and response are crucial in preventing the spread of COVID-19, Mater Hospital is introducing software robots to automate the processing of test results and  other administrative tasks. With a robot for every nurse, the strain of administrative work is lessened, and nurses gain back 30% of their time.

Automation can help the healthcare industry respond to increased demand and rapidly changing environments beyond the current crisis. Watch this webinar to hear how Mater Hospital has used automation to respond to scenarios such as:

  • Scheduling tests and urgent patient testing

  • Speeding up the COVID-19 lab testing process

Additionally, you will learn how automation is helping governments and organizations automate scenarios such as:

  • Volume of recruitment of volunteers and health retirees

  • Pandemic unemployment benefits

  • Extracting information from lab systems and sending results to patients
