The world is facing drastic changes due to the Covid-19 pandemic. And, while many of us still don’t know how to react, there are people who’ve been involved since the very first recorded case. Healthcare institutions have been at the forefront of this crisis, devoting their time, energy and health towards delivering a response to the pandemic.
This pandemic won’t be stopped without each of us doing our part. It’s time to think about how we can overcome these new challenges together.
To relieve the burden of paper-based patient intake processes during the ongoing crisis, pdfFiller is offering free 3-month Premium subscriptions to all US-based healthcare institutions. This way healthcare institutions can now ease their transitions to remote working conditions while decreasing the load on already stretched healthcare providers.

Why do healthcare institutions choose paperless workflow solutions?
Statistics show that medical errors end up costing more than $20 billion and over 100,000 patient lives every year. Mixing up tests or forgotten signatures can ruin a company’s reputation. 50% of physicians suffer from burnout. The most common reason has to do with the load of non-clinical tasks such as reporting, billing, changing politics, and managing documentation. In total, 32% of physicians spend 20 or more hours on administrative operations per week.
At the same time, more than 75% of laboratory clinicians said that using electronic health records helped them receive laboratory results much faster than manual methods. More than 82% of healthcare professionals claim that electronic prescriptions save time and minimize the amount of human input required to complete their processes. Moreover, about 50% of healthcare finances are wasted because of inefficient processes. The financial benefits of implementing workflow processes in US healthcare organizations have been between $37M and $59M in a period of five years. (Statistics by CCHIT)
Paperless workflows help smooth patient flow, preventing overcrowding, delays in care deliveries, and so on. They reduce medical errors, save healthcare specialists from burnout and minimize the risk to personnel, who would otherwise be subjected to very close proximity with unwell patients.
Over 40,000 healthcare professionals are already using the HIPAA compliant pdfFiller platform to aid in their paperless document transactions.
