Hospital ERP & multi location functions
The healthcare industry in India is growing and getting to be more competitive. In order to increase the purchasing power, many hospitals are adopting the model of operating from multiple locations – either as a hub and spoke model or a combination of diverse and single speciality units spread across multiple geographies. The hospital either build their own units or buy or lease existing units.
While healthcare is a business for many of the hospitals, in a developing country such as India, hospitals have a strategy of serving the under privileged and are often funded by charity organisations to meet the daily needs.
Multi location hospitals have the advantage of applying economies of scale and scope in serving the interest of patients and their dependents. A central repository for knowledge management would help the clinical and paramedical teams to efficiently share best practices across diverse cultures and geographies. Similarly, the patients can be given with roaming profile in order to meet doctors of specialities located at different cities.
Advantages of a multi location hospital software
A central procurement system can help optimise the supplier base and use the economies of scale to get better pricing for drugs, equipment and maintenance solutions ; while a central employee engagement portal would enable teams across to deliver higher engagement levels and patient interaction.
Maintenance management and central spares repository helps in improved availability of critical components. The digital initiatives of India are supported though seamless integration with portal solution, to enable online payment and patient self service.
Multi branch hospital ERP
The internal optimisation and standardisation of processes would certainly reduce the cost of operations ; which can be passed on to the patients.
