When it comes to treating patients, every second and every step saved counts, and can even save a life. That makes Macro Scheduler a natural fit for our healthcare customers because it streamlines repetitive behind-the-scene tasks like data entry, freeing the hands and attention of nurses, physicians, technicians, and other health care personnel.
There's really no reason these highly skilled healthcare workers should spend time typing in the same data every day when those keystrokes can be easily automated (and even scheduled to run unattended) with Macro Scheduler. How much time you can save depends on how many macros you put into use. Some healthcare customers report savings of nine hours a day or more!
Building Technology Bridges in the NHS
At the Royal Bournemouth Hospital Macro Scheduler is automating the transfer of patient diagnosis records as well as employee records and invoice generation, saving staff from the drudgery of manual data entry tasks and freeing them up to treat more patients.
Our Automation Solution is assisting with the transfer of digitised patient records as well as building interfaces between incompatible systems and linking digitised documents to existing electronic records.
"Macro Scheduler has enabled us, as non programmers, to write our own interfaces and macros between a variety of systems."
We can automate any desktop or web application that runs on Windows. At the NHS we've automated and integrated with ESR, SystmOne, Symphony, eCaMIS, Lilie, ImageNow and other systems. But it doesn't matter if we've never even seen it before - if it runs on Windows we can automate it!Royal Bournemouth NHS Case Study
Hands-Free Filing for Large Medical Vaccine Trial
About 4,000 documents are being scanned and transmitted each day from remote health centers in the Netherlands to a Dutch hospital to support the world's second-largest medical vaccine trial. These documents contain coding readable by Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software that conveys the remote center and patient involved. Macro Scheduler was used to initiate commands for the OCR software to automatically process these documents for filing, and to extract data from an Excel spreadsheet to cross-check for missing documents.
- The trial's innovative hands-free filing procedure was validated by external auditors.
- 340,000 documents total will be filed using the OCR technology.
- About nine hours a day are saved using OCR, according to the hospital.
- Automation improves accuracy. Macros validate and detect OCR errors and if needed flag up documents (only 1 in 1000) for manual review.

"Macro Scheduler costs a fraction of what WinRunner and other competing test tools on the market cost, and it saves money in other ways as well. The other tools generally require a license for every machine we run our test on. With Macro Scheduler, we can create compiled-macros. So, say, we have a team of five testers developing scripts on five licenses. But we want to run tests very quickly on 20 machines. Well, then, we could put compiled-macros on those 20 machines and run the test very quickly, at no additional cost."
We believe (Macro Scheduler) is going to greatly decrease our maintenance cost because it will simplify our scripts---so we will have fewer workarounds. And it will let us use the same method, image recognition, for writing all our scripts---whether it's a web app or client server ... By using one method, we can start including more testers and get our manual testers involved in creating some of their own automation.
