Addiction Treatment Centers and Lost Productivity from Manual Records Part 3
Addiction Treatment Centers and the Lack of Accessibility of Manual Records
Addiction Treatment Centers have a major problem in the sense that there is lack of accessibility of manual records. Only one team member at any one time may access an Addiction Treatment Center's manual records, and those specific records have to be at that specific location. Team members needing access to manual records have to wait until they are available for their use. This in itself is almost prehistoric, and similar to how our public libraries work, albeit they came into existence over 150 years ago!
The lack of accessibility of manual records in Addiction Treatment Centers also contributes to the difficulties in maintaining up to date paper records. This is especially true for current patients, whose paper records will be in transit with said patient to each location of treatment, and it is of course current patient's records whose are of the uppermost importance. Delivering paper records by hand to a patient's temporary location means that they are increasingly likely to be misplaced or even lost. Delayed access to a patient's manual records costs not only time and ever-diminishing resources, but inexcusable mistakes could be made with their treatment.
The reliance of manual records in Addiction Treatment Centers will always mean lack of accessibility to those who need it. This is a serious matter and could ultimately determine how much progress (or not) a patient makes.
The Cloud Based Solution to Accessibility
A cloud based management system, specifically designed for Addiction Treatment Centers, is the solution to this lack of accessibility of patient records.
Cloud based computing is in itself simply the storing and accessing of data and programs over the internet. It is not a time-consuming process with the necessary information being able to be viewed almost instantly. Team members can receive the information they need and the patients can be treated in a more timely manner, which is of great importance where addiction is concerned.
When your Addiction Treatment Center team can create, edit and share documents anywhere, any time, they are able to do more together, and do it better. Updates are made in real time and everyone has full visibility of their collaborations.
If your Addiction Treatment Center is still relying on manual records, it may just be the time to try something more seamless… Find that solution to lack of accessibility!
