Every step at registration is important to keep a record of test information correct. Mistakes at patient registration can affect linking details and results back to them in the latter phase of lab service delivery.
If we are unaware of such mistakes happening, it can affect a lab’s reputation and that is why we are often cautious about the errors that take place at registration. Manual entries are the leading cause of errors and therefore, automating the process makes sense.
How to Prevent Errors at Patient Registration?
One of the finest ways to prevent these manual errors is to scan the identification documents right away at the front desk. On heavy workload days, patient registration can become chaotic. And this is how registration itself can be highly erroneous. Document scanning will help with patient identification to collect useful information about the patient like contact numbers and other vital details.
