Lane Regional, a prominent community hospital located just north of Baton Rouge in South Louisiana, boasts nearly three decades of commitment to healthcare excellence. With Todd Walters at the helm, a healthcare veteran of almost 30 years, Lane Regional embarked on a mission to modernize their operations. Their partnership with BOSS Solutions aimed to overcome challenges and usher in a new era of efficiency in healthcare management.
Before adopting BOSSDesk, Lane Regional faced multifaceted challenges in their healthcare operations. The utilization of an outdated help desk ticketing system posed limitations despite its historical effectiveness. The need for modernization became crucial, requiring a transition to the latest version of BOSSDesk. This leap in technology brought forth a significant learning curve, demanding careful consideration and strategic implementation to ensure a seamless transition. The shift from an outdated IT ticketing system to the more advanced BOSSDesk was essential to overcome these challenges and enhance the efficiency of their healthcare support operations.
Lane Regional's journey with BOSSDesk unfolded with a meticulous approach to addressing their challenges.
Comprehensive Ticketing System Overhaul:
The implementation process commenced with a two-to-three-month overhaul of the help desk ticketing system. Collaborative sessions were conducted with internal teams, including the help desk, system admin, clinical, and interface and report writing teams. This laid the foundation for a comprehensive ticketing system, streamlining workflows and reducing resolution times.
Flexible Service Catalog Templates:
BOSSDesk's flexibility was harnessed to create service catalog templates, automating the routing of tickets based on predefined criteria. This granular approach ensured that each ticket was directed to the appropriate team, minimizing manual triaging and optimizing efficiency.
Efficient Inventory Management Integration:
The integration of BOSSDesk with Active Directory significantly streamlined the inventory management process. Automatic capture of device details, such as hardware specifications and software installations, ensured a real-time and accurate representation of the hospital's diverse inventory.
Custom Fields for Epic Implementation:
