Healthcare organizations are intended to go for new enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems to realize the benefits of a cloud solution, according to a recent KLAS Decisions Insights report.
This report based on the 73 market research firm’s decision of purchase since the beginning of 2019. The examination discovered that the activity carried out by providers is primarily dominated to look forward to move to the cloud. Providers are hoping that this new system is reliable and secure with improved efficiency, and reduced capital investments.
There are multiple reasons to opt for cloud based ERP system in healthcare. We have listed few of them:
ERP in cloud reduce the capital cost of providers. As system is cloud based, so providers just have to pay what and when they require. They can bought resources whenever there is need without increasing the operational cost. A fully integrated cloud solution enables good cash flow and improvement and it leading to lowered cost.
Integration over interfacing is the advantage of cloud based solutions. It’s best to have one fully integrated unit rather than multiple interfaced solutions. With one solution user can get required information from the respective module without much hassle. Nowadays, an ERP system provides an analytics tool which helps to identify the overall expenses of the organization.
As ERP system is cloud based it does not require any physical hardware. You can use it with your existing system like you surf the internet on your system. Your staff can able to give their full attention to patient care and clinical management. As cloud base ERP solution have a single configuration module that is self-sufficient in itself.
Healthcare organization major concern is data security. It always doubted that data stored on cloud servers are safe or not. The fact is that in ERP cloud system, the security of data is ensured more than anything else. The customer database is encrypted for security and no trespasser can access the data.
Cloud based ERP systems from vendors such as Oracle, SAP and Workday are fairly new to the market, regardless of industry. As a result many times vendors face challenges of making these products operations for clients currently using on-premises systems.
Vendors are improving their customer support by addressing these challenges in more strategic analytical way in addition to traditional outcome management. This analysis can include an organization’s Medicare cost-to-charge ratio.
ERP systems also support organizations that are in the process of merger, acquisition or affiliation, says Mary Kilmer, executive director of Oracle Healthcare.
Enterprises across all verticals have been slow to adopt cloud-based enterprise resource planning products. It is a market “in transition,” according to Gartner’s latest ERP market guide, with fewer than5 percent of enterprises hosting operational ERP deployments in the public cloud. Healthcare organizations are no exception. As they increasingly consider their ERP needs, however, they increasingly look to the cloud instead of on-premises products.
