Robotic Process Automation (RPA) in Healthcare

Improve efficiency, accuracy, and security with a 24/7 RPA workforce

What is RPA in Healthcare?


Robotic process automation (RPA) software provides a way to interact with your disparate systems and applications to manage high-volume processes without burdening your busy workforce. RPA software bots work 24/7, don’t need time off and don’t make mistakes. And in the healthcare industry, that's a lifesaver.

Healthcare facilities require reliable transmission of sensitive data throughout a wide network of departments and partners. Records have to stay up-to-date and synced between providers, labs, pharmacies, and more—and when lives are on the line, there’s no room for error. Complicating matters is that IT environments in healthcare are complex with a multitude of disparate applications, file formats, and systems. RPA in healthcare transforms these processes to keep the focus on providing excellent patient care.
