The Crucial Role of Document Management System in Healthcare
The long-overdue realization of how digitization can boost healthcare especially in the Philippines was even more highlighted when the pandemic struck. When limitations spurred by health protocols bombard the ailing healthcare system of the country, government agencies and various organizations took advantage of different virtual platforms to spread awareness, deliver information and updates, and bridge the services the public needs albeit a bit slowly and gradually.
Currently, the most pressing concern related to bringing healthcare for all is the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine. More and more key cities and provinces in the Philippines have started their inoculation program thanks to the collective effort of the national government, the local government units, the frontliners, and the community.
For the COVID-19 vaccine rollout, several LGUs have staged a website where citizens can input their important information to register to get their doses. Notifying residents once it’s their time to get the vaccine according to the priority list mandated by the government is also done through e-mails and text messages, veering away from the tedious process of going house-to-house.
Despite this, there remain stories of how the whole process is an ordeal for some. The common sight of stacked piles of papers with important information of citizens is ever-present in vaccination centers. Workers and staff still have to manually sift through printed documents for validation and verification. All these account for the slowdown of the entire vaccine deployment.
The Philippines isn’t exactly a stranger to embracing digitization across industries including healthcare. As the years pass by, the country is gearing more towards the full realization and implementation of utilizing the virtual space for faster and more efficient services for the benefit of the public. The key to success in this endeavor is finding the right partners that will help the government and the community with ample digital tools — organizations like Attaché Docs.
Specializing in document management systems, software solutions provided by Attaché Docs can be beneficial in streamlining government processes particularly those concerning public service. One of its main offerings is the fast and easy creation of digital forms. This lessens the need to create complex websites to host a digital form where people can input their information for different purposes. More importantly, it eliminates the tradition of manual data input resulting in slower processing — something that has been painfully accustomed when it comes to government systems in the country.
Among the main selling points of the easy creation of digital forms via Attaché Docs is customization. This provides versatility as to what types of information an organization would want to gather using the forms. Tweaking and modifying the forms are done in a shorter time, too, without the need of getting an IT expert.
Attaché Docs also has a Central Document Storage where all the submitted forms customized through Attaché Docs are located. This makes important data easily searchable and accessible in just a few clicks. With this, there’s no need for organizations and government agencies to always have hard copies of documents that they need to scour through and read one-by-one just to find a piece of particular information.
Storing information in stacked printed documents also have higher risks of data loss and leakage. With the Central Document Storage tool of Attaché Docs, agencies are assured that data is stored safely and securely. Attaché Docs is also compliant with the Data Privacy Act, providing an extra layer of protection to collected information through encryption.
An efficient public service mirrors effective governance. Discover how Attaché Docs can boost the adaptation of digitization in your agencies and organizations.
