Why Do Labs Continue To Use Paper?
Most people don’t realize that 50% of the lab procedures performed in the US today are completed using paper. The associated costs, cleverly hidden behind routine operations, make this a very expensive business model. The combined costs of paper forms, shipping, printing, storage, and staffing are enormous. Complicating things further, paper can be damaged in transit, lost, or unreadable. And paper orders can’t alert lab staff when they’re en route for processing.
The obvious solution to the ongoing costs and operational impacts associated with paper is to convert to an automated solution. Sadly, most small to mid-sized labs are under the impression that implementing automation is too expensive. But the collaborative solution offered by Shadowbox and Wave is completely changing that mindset!
Shadowbox + Wave: Changing the Way You Do Business
By combining Shadowbox’s instant healthcare automation strategy with Wave’s real-time healthcare data curation, labs can eliminate the continual pain points driving up operational costs:
- Managing Supplies & Logistics
- Correcting Data Entry Errors
- Overcoming Staffing Challenges
- More Payer Denials
- Increased Bad Debt
Imagine an operation where you’re not constantly re-ordering or re-printing forms. And your staff doesn’t spend countless hours performing insurance discovery and claim follow-up tasks. Where processes historically handled “downstream” are performed at the time of order. It’s all possible (and more!) with the Shadowbox + Wave solution and at a price point cheaper than paper.
