Government Health IT magazine recently featured an article by Dr. John Loonsk, former director of interoperability and standards in the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT, on why electronic forms (e-forms) management is crucial for successful electronic health records (EHRs) projects.

Here are the highlights:

“There is a need for consistent and coordinated electronically supported entry of data in a way that is as minimally burdensome as possible on clinicians and their staffs. A well executed program for electronic forms (e-forms) can achieve these objectives.”

“The way the standards work, the need for a form is initiated by data that exist in the EHR. The EHR auto-populates data for which standards exist and launches an e-form in a browser or renders it through its own software for additional necessary data.”

“Forms can be queued for support staff completion to further reduce clinician burden. Data can be saved in the EHR or submitted it to a variety of endpoints.”


Hundreds of hospitals worldwide are using Access Intelligent Forms Suite (IFS) to efficiently integrate clinical data into EHRs. Contact us today to see how we can meet your facility’s needs!
