In the current climate, healthcare systems are facing increased financial strain due to the ongoing effects of the pandemic. This reality, combined with the continuous pressure to reduce costs and improve efficiency, calls for innovative, solutions-oriented strategies that break away from traditional dependency models. The emerging role of Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and machine learning technologies provides a promising avenue to navigate these challenges, yet raises critical questions about necessary capital investments and the inherent variability of human labor. 

In chatting to “Highway to Health” at the HFMA 2023, Ryan O’Hara, DVP Consulting at Acclara, discusses advocating for a new paradigm that not only offers long-term, cost-effective solutions, but also aims to foster a healthier financial environment for healthcare systems, such as Robotic Process Automation.
