Overcoming challenges

Automate Document Data Entry at Scale

Challenge #1

Referrals, Orders, New Facility Onboarding, Patient Intake

Healthcare teams still receive documents and faxes today. They may not always own the fax lines. Their teams must manually review each document to identify its type. The document is then placed in a specific downstream folder where another team, typically a centralized order entry or technician team, manually enters the necessary information. Because different documents have varying data entry requirements, this constant switching between tasks becomes burdensome and leads to errors. Validation of data and filling in missing information often requires navigating through multiple tabs.

Our solution

End-to-end Intelligent Document Processing & Reconciliation

Plenful's IDP solution automates pharmacy operations' document data entry by streamlining text extraction, file triage and classification, data validation, and relevant crosswalks across unlimited document types. The platform's human-in-the-loop interface allows for proactive flagging of human review when needed, supported by Plenful's proprietary 1-click workflow confirmations. Additional features include split file capabilities, Plenful's dedicated Fax Solution, and automated data ingest and export messaging.

Challenge #2

Manual Management of Financial Data (e.g. Wholesaler Rates & Invoicing)

Critical financial data is often trapped within unstructured data types, such as payer contracting rates, wholesaler rates, invoices, and other documents. Finance and operations teams are required to manually transcribe this information into Excel sheets for analysis and planning purposes. This process is highly manual and ad hoc, leading to reliance on stale, non-real-time information.

Our solution

Real-time Financial Data Reconciliation

Plenful’s IDP Solution can extract large volumes of diverse data, capturing over 100 data fields per page. Harness Plenful’s machine learning capabilities to search through various document types, extract relevant information, and perform reconciliation matches with your other data sources, customizing your workflow to meet specific requirements. Applicable to payer rates contracts, other contracts, wholesaler invoices, checks, and other financial documents.

Challenge #3

Patient Support Documentation Requires Significant Manual Work

Manual document processing for obtaining the latest statuses and next steps continues to be a challenge for healthcare operations teams, especially for pharmacy operations support teams dedicated to providing optimal care for specialty patients and others. Each team member must individually open documents, extract relevant information, reconcile it with existing patient data, and update next steps through manual data entry. This repetitive and error-prone process leads to inefficiencies and delays in patient care.

Our solution

Financial Assistance, Prior Authorization Document Data Entry Automation

Work with Plenful to proactively identify and extract your specified text, triggering the next workflow step associated with patient support document-based workflows, such as financial assistance and prior authorization updates from external entities. Remove this workload from your team's responsibilities, allowing them to concentrate on higher-value tasks related to direct patient care and follow-up. Proactively flag missing information and maintain a single source of truth for end-to-end document-based workflows, with the ability to send and receive data as required.
