This paper will explore the potential of applying business performance management (BPM) principles to advance document performance management (DPM) in a way that enables organizations to reduce costs; better manage documents as vital strategic, ?nancial and information assets; and secure positive returns on investments from outsourcing. An example of this approach — spotlighted later in this paper — is MAX, a document performance management system that enables companies to more effectively manage their document processes and outsourcing service providers.
Using LEAN Six Sigma techniques, Central Sterile Processing and Materials Management leaders at Peninsula Regional Medical Center (PRMC) identified specialty bed management as an area ripe for improvement. They were spending too much time looking for these assets and renting too many specialty beds. Initially, the team focused on streamlining its order form process. They soon realized they were getting better—but at the wrong thing. They still weren’t achieving the desired results.
Read this case study to learn how Peninsula Regional Medical Center implemented STANLEY Healthcare’s AeroScout® Real Time Locating System (RTLS) and uses real-time location to improve specialty bed management, dramatically reducing rental costs.
This penetrating survey report clarifies how organizations are leveraging document management practices, such as records management and document imaging, to help meet the current economic challenges and gain a competitive edge in the eventual recovery.
