Tracking Lost Productivity During COVID-19

Managing disruptions to people and productivity caused by the coronavirus is not an easy task. It’s likely that your team is adapting to temporary COVID-19 working conditions, even if that means sharing a kitchen table with a spouse, kids, and pets. Whether working remotely or social distancing, the danger of rapid declines in productivity, morale, and team performance increase as the pandemic continues. “The global work-from-home movement intended to maintain output and efficiency during the COVID-19 pandemic could actually generate a worldwide productivity slump and threaten economic growth for many years,” says Stanford economist Nicholas Bloom.

A recent Pulse study by PwC found that, “42% of CFO respondents were concerned about workforce productivity.”

The longer the stretch, the greater the potential for decline. We are navigating a “new normal” in terms of remote work. This is a good thing for many companies because they are finding they can work remotely, but a challenging time for hospitals and health systems to manage daily productivity.

Remote work will likely continue in the future even for groups that don’t normally work remotely. Managing expectations, setting clear and concise goals, and monitoring results needs to be a seamless, transparent process.

That’s why Boston Software Systems is offering a Productivity Dashboard to hospitals and health systems, with no licensing or support fees for the first year.

The Dashboard has been extremely successful in helping organizations manage the shift and disruption caused by remote work, by bringing meaningful, actionable data to department, group, or role-based users by displaying metrics in an easy to understand and meaningful way for the organization. We do this by taking the results from any automation or report, aggregating the data, and displaying the results in a customizable view with drill-down functionality.

Dashboard deployment is completed within days, without EHR vendor involvement and at a fraction of the cost of other approaches and products.

Highlight problems when they occur, evaluate productivity, and address areas that require process improvement in:

  • Revenue Cycle Claims Status
  • Organizational Productivity
  • Materials / Resource Management
  • Quality Initiatives
