PAS: Leading the Way towards Paperless Administration

With the increasingly important role played by IT in the healthcare industry, administrative workflows are changing and paperless administration could well become a reality. This is driving the demand for patient administration systems (PAS) in Europe. At the same time, growing implementation of electronic medical records (EMR) due to the rising trend towards integrated healthcare delivery is encouraging the uptake of PAS. Various policy level initiatives such as the eEurope action plan and others at the regional and local levels are all promoting greater use of IT in healthcare. "This is vital to the growth of the PAS markets in Europe," says the analyst of this research service. "There exists a strong need to deliver care at the highest levels of patient safety, which has translated into increased attention towards IT solutions that prevent clinical and administrative mishaps by performing workflow functions accurately, consistently and efficiently."

There appears to be a distinct rise in demand for integrated healthcare delivery in Europe, particularly in the developed markets of Germany, the United Kingdom and France. However, regional and local initiatives in other regions are also encouraging this trend, leading to administrative upgrades. Although healthcare delivery has traditionally been highly paper-dependent, the implementation of IT solutions such as PAS will reduce tedious paperwork and archiving and computerise administrative workflow to make it more efficient and less time consuming.

Interoperability Critical for PAS

EMR implementation is driving significant upgrades in European healthcare systems as reflected in Germany’s electronic cards, the United Kingdom’s Care Records programme and several other regional initiatives in France and Italy. The uptake of PAS is directly linked to these developments since it forms the platform upon which EMR sources information and interacts with other departments. PAS remains a prerequisite for EMR implementation.

"PAS forms the fundamental administrative system on which information is sourced, registrations are handled and error reports are generated and also performs administrative tasks vital to daily workflows," notes the analyst. "Such infrastructural functionality is imperative for EMR systems." However, providing such enhanced functionality requires PAS to have high levels of interoperability. With interest in EMR growing by the day, it seems clear that PAS must become interoperable to effectively support EMR implementation.
