(Gawkwire) – Cloud technology continues to grow in usage within the healthcare industry, as evidenced by a survey conducted earlier this year by CDW that showed a 30 percent year-over-year increase.
Cloud-based software platforms and applications enable healthcare facilities to operate more efficiently by automating and streamlining specific tasks, such as patient appointments.
Scheduling patient appointments for vaccinations, flu shots and other services is oftentimes a painful process for wellness centers and healthcare facilities. This is especially true for larger organizations that schedule large numbers of appointments at multiple locations.
Automating the process with a cloud-based enterprise scheduling system enables these sites to operate more efficiently and productively.
“Properly managing a high volume of appointments across multiple facilities requires a highly scalable and robust system,” said Stephen Booze, CIO of Appointment-Plus enterprise appointment scheduling software. “An enterprise scheduler can give healthcare and wellness centers the necessary tools to accomplish this."
