DCM provides clinical forms-management services and enterprise communication solutions to hospitals, clinics, continuing-care providers, mental-health facilities and community health sites. Working with key form owners and stakeholders such as IT and operations, we ensure effective, timely availability of documents, marketing programs, community communication, and specialty labels for process and asset tracking. Areas of expertise include positive patient ID, mobile specimen collection and bedside patient management. Our solutions enhance patient safety and healthcare ID processes while helping clients transition to robust digital platforms that reduce costs and increase efficiency.
DCM improves efficiency of routine healthcare communications by analyzing the systems and workflows that support them.
This might involve moving production to more efficient equipment and space based on job specifications and quantity. Or partnering with in-house print shops. Or moving jobs between print-on-demand and preprint; storing inventory based on factors such as usage patterns; anticipated process/form changes; and form-consolidation efforts.
By maximizing efficiency in volume and equipment, we help clients minimize unit costs. At the same time, we can practically eliminate document obsolescence, with virtually no disruption to form users.
We analyze and improve document creation to cut out cost-drivers — anything from process bottlenecks to unnecessary design elements. Simply eliminating bleeds from documents, for instance, can generate significant savings without compromising quality.
We also use analytics and logistics to maximize production and distribution efficiency. For example, more effective inventory management and local warehousing helps streamline document delivery while reducing its footprint.
We further drive cost reduction by enforcing standards and business rules. Our online ordering empowers frontline service-providers while maintaining compliance and security.
Providing effective patient care often centres on finding the right document at the right time. Through intuitive, web-based ordering, DATA delivers integrated fulfillment solutions that simplify procurement while ensuring document control and security at every access point.
The result is a system that:
