Save More Time Now: Leveraging Workflow in Software and Technology

Posted by George Ritacco on Apr 26, 2017 5:56:25 PM


There's a common (and unfortunate) misconception out there that certain industries are perfectly fine relying less on technology than others. Social workers, healthcare workers and people in similar professions don't necessarily have a pressing urge for information management and case management software because most of their day is spent in-person.

They've found their groove, they’re good at what they do and technology can't really replace the "real world" work they're doing on a daily basis, right?

Yes and no. Technology isn't meant to replace anything. By leveraging the ability to supplement your existing workflow through a digital solution like information or case management, you can actually free up valuable time so that you can spend more time in the real world doing what matters most. In truth, leveraging workflow in software and technology stands to benefit just about everyone in a wide range of different ways that are worth exploring.

Embracing the Digital World

One of the most important benefits of leveraging something like a web-based data or case management solution for your organization comes by way of the fact that you can now be connected to your data anytime, anywhere - no exceptions. Whether you're sitting in front of your desktop computer in your office or are on your smartphone in your car on the way to a client appointment, you have access to every last kilobyte of mission-critical data you need to stay connected to the task at hand.

There's no more waiting until you get back to the office to update a case file. There are no more delays in making sure that all members of your team are on the same page. Everyone is connected to case files, calendars, client information and more - all at the same time.

Likewise, solutions like FAMCare are heavily customizable. You don't have to change the way you work to adapt to new technology - you can adapt technology to fit the way you already like to do things. Everything from form configuration to medical and assessments modules to security configuration, dynamic calendars and more - all can be configured to support precisely the way you like to do things.

Even if two social workers are using the same system, it's entirely possible for them to be using it in two entirely different ways because they have different approaches to their daily workflow. That's the thing about modern technology - it can be whatever you want it to be, whenever you want it to be it.

Along the same lines, solutions like FAMCare allow you to create entire custom pathways of all-inclusive events and tasks that need to be completed, allowing you to prioritize what you need and focus on what is most important. If your day includes conducting interviews, going through training, overseeing reviews and filling out forms - you can prioritize what matters most in the moment and maintain complete visibility over what you've done and what still needs to be completed.

Every event can be built around YOUR workflow - from the point of contacts you need to touch base with to a set schedule you're trying to follow - all displayed in a dynamic visual way that is easy to understand and even easier to act upon.

Putting Technology to Work For You

In the end, leveraging the ability to create a custom workflow through software and technology is about more than just adding another weapon to your arsenal. It's about being able to work smarter, not harder - in many cases for the first time. It does more than just save your organization time in that less paperwork and more automation means more focused employees. It's about being able to free up precious minutes in a day where they're desperately needed, allowing your team to finally devote the maximum amount of attention to the most important thing of all: moving your organization forward.
