Addressing common finance issues within the NHS

For those involved in health service finance, there are a number of key challenges which are essential to be overcome to support the smooth operation of services.

According to recent study data gathered by Emburse, four of the highest priority concerns which finance departments and staff must overcome include:

  • High operational costs: 30% of organisations still use manual processes
  • Uncovering fraudulent spend: 17% of business fraud is through expenses
  • Duplicate or late payments: 35% of finance leaders are concerned with cashflow
  • Inability to optimise spend: 52% want to improve forecasting and analytics

Through their Certify and Chrome River solutions, Emburse is able to support healthcare providers to overcome many of these common challenges.

A registered vendor on the NHS Shared Business Services (NHS SBS) framework, Emburse’s Chrome River solution is easily accessible to NHS organisations through a OJEU-compliant route, free from often time-consuming formal tendering processes.

NHE365 Virtual Festival: Digital Healthcare

The integration of new technology, such as using virtual outpatient appointments instead of face-to-face reviews of patients in the hospital. Adapting the ways in which our NHS workers serve people has been critical in continuing to provide high-quality treatment, a positive patient experience and preventing Covid-19 transmission during the pandemic. Our healthcare sector has the potential to transform the way we continue to provide essential services while also improving patient care. But how easy is the integration of these innovations into routine NHS practice?

On the 28th of October, at the NHE365 Virtual Hospitals & Technology Enabled Care online event, we will be discussing patient flow and experience, reducing waiting times, reducing the patient backlog and increasing technology adoption. Will you be attending?
