NHS Common Process Automation Use Cases

NHS Trusts and Hospitals have multiple use cases for process automation. The ultimate goal is complete digitisation, but many prioritise the processes that are the most labour-intensive or ones that need the most transparency and where bottlenecks can be identified and addressed quickly. Process automation can be used in many scenarios whether they are back-office/operational or those processes that capture data when staff are patient-facing.

When hospitals and trusts automate their initial processes, they see the speed and agility of FlowForma - automating workflows in hours or days and enabling a data-driven approach to decision-making. Historically this often took weeks or months to complete or indeed failed and never got off the ground.

Customer Feedback

Head of ICT & Acting Deputy CIO Blackpool Logo circle copy-1

"For us, it was about leveraging the national tenant to gain further efficiencies and adopting an internet-first approach to cyber security.

FlowForma was part of our core PASA (Provisioning and System Access) solutions and the ability to create workflows quickly with governance from IT, without being reliant on them, is critical as we seek to further automate in other areas."
