Streamlining Physician Profile Management: A Digital Transformation Success Story

Imagine this:
A large healthcare organization, with over 1200 physicians, needs to maintain up-to-date physician contact information, practicing locations, and Board Certifications.To submit this information, Dr. Patel, a new physician, needs to fill out a physical form, hand-deliver it to the administration office, where the office staff then manually enters the data onto an EXCEL spreadsheet. If Dr. Patel changes his practice location after a few months, he must, again, fill out another form, hand deliver it to the administration office, have someone manually enter the information. In another month, if Dr. Patel needs to change his phone number, the process is repeated again. If he unfortunately misses filling out a required field, what happens? He needs to do it again!

Can you imagine an organization with a more than a thousand physicians, how many change requests that would be? How many paper forms to keep track of? Plus, what if required information is missing, or the administration office enters the wrong data due to typos, what chaos it will it be? This process presents a significant challenge due to the growing number of physicians, leading to frustration for both the office staff and the physicians.

This was a real story for one of our clients, and it is very common for many organizations who are dealing with manual data entry in paper format. Our goal was to transform their outdated system into a smooth, digital experience, giving relief to all parties involved.

Streamlining Physician Profile Management: A Digital Transformation Success Story

As is common with paper-based processes, we needed to resolve the following challenges for our client:

  • Tediousness for physicians: Filling out forms by hand and delivering them in person was time-consuming and inconvenient.
  • Heavy work load for administration office: Manual data entry for every physician change request.
  • Error-prone entries: Missing or incorrect information on paper forms often led to delays and rework updates.
  • Inefficient tracking: Managing and storing physical copies of forms was cumbersome and made it difficult to track the status of updates.

Our solution? After working closely with the administration office and task holders, we identified a solution: a custom-built web application. This application would offer physicians convenient access from anywhere to:

  • Easily update their information: The user-friendly interface provides guidance throughout the process and ensures all required fields are filled.
  • Submit electronically: No more hand-delivering forms! Submissions are instant and recorded into the system.
  • Streamlined review: The application simplifies the review process for the administrative team.

Through close collaboration with our client's leadership team, we efficiently gathered requirements, designed the system flow, developed, tested, and deployed the application within just a few weeks. This transition to a digital system has delivered immediate benefits for both the physicians and the administrative office:

  • Increased convenience and time savings: Physicians can update their information according to their own schedule, and the administrative team spends less time managing the physical paperwork.
  • Enhanced data integrity: The web form's validation rules prevent incomplete or incorrect submissions, minimizing errors and rework.
  • Improved data accessibility and security: All information is stored electronically, making it easily accessible and secure.

In summary, from this small story, we can see the power of digitization. This is just one example of how custom software can revolutionize outdated business processes. Whether you're in healthcare, finance, or any other industry, digitizing manual tasks can:

  • Lower the operating cost by boosting efficiency and productivity
  • Minimize errors
  • Enhance collaboration and transparency
  • Improve data management and security
