RPA is a potential game-changer for healthcare, in intelligently automating repetitive computer tasks to boost productivity and reduce errors.

Robotic Process Automation or RPA is the latest craze sweeping the digital industry, but the concept is not new, and certainly not new to Savience. 

In its simplest form RPA is about automating manual computer interactions that would normally require human intervention. It frees employees to focus on higher-value work by automating repetitive and error-prone human tasks.

The technology enables computer software to be configured to emulate the actions of human interaction with digital systems to execute a defined business process. It can interpret interactions, trigger responses and communicate with other systems to perform a vast array of repetitive tasks, normally performed by humans. But unlike humans, the software robot never sleeps, makes zero mistakes, and costs less.

RPA technology gives organisations the tools to automate processes at a fraction of the time and cost of traditional solutions. And it’s non-intrusive so there’s no risk of disrupting the underlying system and its business rules with all of the problems that could entail.

RPA robots are capable of mimicking most human user actions. They log into applications, move files and folders, copy and paste data, fill in forms, extract structured and semi-structured data from documents, screen-scrape browsers, and more. RPA robots also respond to un-expected events such as error messages and pop-up screens.
