Example of an integrated HMS improving process flow in a patient journey

An integrated HMS in simple words means – A system that ties together all the different departments within a hospital or medical facility. It allows the management and users to have better control over volumes, finances, processes, etc. It helps in reducing time and manpower to a large extent by automating most processes and avoiding human intervention. It also eliminates redundancy and wastage of resources.

One example of how the integrated system works is:

Below mentioned is a 20 step process of what a patient journey looks like with BeWell Digital’s fully Integrated HMS:

  1. A patient wants to visit a doctor for a first-level checkup, the appointment scheduling can be made using the system. The appropriate time slot will be allotted to the patient to avoid queuing or waiting. 
  2. The software helps you manage time slots and avoid crowding on your hospital premise by using a queuing system.
  3. The patient’s basic information like name, phone number, emergency contact, etc can be recorded before meeting the doctor.

  5. The tests are performed at the lab as per the doctor’s prescription and the reports are made available for the doctor to view. 
  6. The doctor or lab physician can share these reports with the patient or another consulting doctor using the system.
