Every step at registration is important to keep a record of lab testing information correct. Mistakes made to register patients can affect linking details and results back to them in the latter phase of lab services delivery.
If we are unaware of such mistakes, it can affect a lab’s reputation. And that is why we are often cautious about errors during patient registration in lab. Moreover, manual entries are the leading cause of errors and therefore, automating the scanning process of Patient registration in lab makes sense.
How to Prevent Errors when Labs Register Patients?
One of the finest ways to prevent these manual errors is by patient Document scanning at the front desk. On heavy workload days, patient registration in lab can become chaotic. And this is how registration itself can be highly erroneous. With LIMS API integration, patient document scanning helps with the identification process to collect helpful information about the patient like contact numbers and other vital details.
