As job seekers are facing off against their competition to snag the best jobs, health care facilities are racing against each other to hire the best candidates. Managing human resources efficiently and accurately is crucial to this process, especially when your candidates will potentially be responsible for medical care. Patients want to be sure they are entrusting their medical needs to someone they know will do a good job. With that said, do you really want to spend your valuable time manually filling out and filing redundant paperwork? Of course not. Your time would be much better spent meeting the needs of current employees and ensuring that you are finding candidates that will be the best fit to your facility. How do you free your schedule of menial tasks? By allowing enterprise content management to take care of the repetitive processes while you spend your time making the important decisions. These kinds of solutions will allow your human resources department to:
1. Utilize optimized electronic record storage
Let’s face it – when you have mountains of paperwork on your desk, locating the right document can be a pain. Even if your documents aren’t actually hard copy, finding files saved in remote folders on your desktop can be tedious. Electronic record storage with ECM will allow you to retrieve your documents a multitude of simpler ways. You can run quick searches with keywords through documents that have been sorted to your preferences, while also saving space and paper. It’s a much easier way to manage human resources in healthcare!
2. Automate time-wasting, repetitive processes
ECM offers many different applications to enhance your workflow. Processes such as creating and filling folders, filling out human resources forms, and sending out offer letters can all be automated. Streamlining all the extra steps you do every day can leave you more time to focus on the aspects of hospital human resources that are really important.
3. Get quick, easy audits of your information
With so many forms involved in human resources administration, staying organized and knowing what forms you do and don’t need is key. ECM can make assessing your information unbelievably simple. Not only will it automatically alert you of any documents that are missing, you will even be notified of any information missing within files you do have. Any time spent making sure employee records are complete and all the paperwork for new hires has been sent in can almost be eliminated.
Human resources in healthcare is super paperwork intensive, but that doesn’t mean you have to be buried in it. Let technology take some of the load off so you can focus on the meaningful aspects of your job and the important decisions you are responsible for making.
