Consensus SST Can Do… What? Yep, Save Your Staff Hundreds of Hours Per Month
How SST saves your organization serious time and money
In case you you’re not familiar with the term, robotic process automation (RPA) refers to using technology to automate rules-based business processes.
Doesn’t sound very exciting when we put it that way, does it? So let’s discuss some of the specific ways it can create massive operational improvements for a healthcare organization like yours.
Imagine being able to set software to run in the background of your company’s workflow applications, 24/7/365, and perform everyday tasks such as these:
- Automatically order supplies (based on time or need) and electronically pay vendors.
- Automatically add new patients into your EHR and populate fields with available data.
- Automatically process patient data sent by fax and populate the patient’s EHR record.
- Automatically check partners’ or patients’ credit scores and update those records.
- Automatically post notes or comments to patient accounts.
- Automatically update expired encounters in your system.
- Automatically generate and distribute common reports (for action, storage, or both).
- Automatically migrate patient records in a companywide EHR migration.
Sounds a little more interesting now, right?
And that list represents only a few of the many everyday workflows across your company that are likely consuming enormous amounts of your staff’s time — in medical records processing, accounting, IT, HR, payroll, etc. — that you could fully automate with an RPA solution.
SST: your super-employee that never rests or makes typos
When it comes to RPA, you won’t find a more successful or flexible solution than the SST intelligent automation engine from Consensus — which has been saving healthcare organizations time and money for more than 20 years.
Every day, our automation platform delivers massive operational benefits to businesses across the healthcare ecosystem — general providers, specialty practices, hospital systems, payers, health plans — by running high volumes of repetitive tasks around the clock, automatically extracting and populating patient information without the risk of human error, and freeing up staff for more productive work than data entry.
Real-world examples of SST saving time and money
One of the many reasons healthcare providers choose SST is that doesn’t require any technical knowledge or coding ability. Organizations can build automated workflows with SST in minutes, with a user-friendly interface designed to make the process simple for nonprogrammers.
And once you’ve got those custom workflows up and running — well, we’re confident you’ll begin seeing tangible benefits similar to our many long-term healthcare clients, including:
Surgery Partners: saving $150,000 per year

UNC Health: saving 250+ employee hours per month
North Carolina’s largest academic health system, UNC Health comprises 16 hospitals, 20 hospital campuses, and 500 clinics across the state. Since automating numerous repetitive tasks, UNC Health’s staff is saving more than 200 hours per month on a single workflow alone — posting comments to patient accounts. The staff also saves dozens of additional hours per month — hours they can spend on more productive endeavors, such as caring for patients — automating other once-manual jobs such as checking credit scores and updating those records.
