Angleton Danbury Medical Center needed a way to get patient registration forms into Meditech Scanning and Archiving (SCA) without time-consuming and error-prone scanning and manual indexing. The Intelligent Forms Suite from Access, the #1 e-forms management provider for hospitals was the clear choice.
“Access’s electronic forms management technology is proven to be effective and to integrate with MEDITECH,” said Owen Huett, Director of Information Systems at Angleton Danbury. “We want to be as paperless as possible, and recognized that Access’s solutions would help achieve this.”
Once an admissions clerk registers a patient in MEDITECH, they click a button to automatically create a customized registration forms packet. The Access system’s tight integration with Meditech pulls patient demographics onto each form, as well as unique patient identifiers. The patient then fills in the remaining required info, and applies a secure electronic signature via an LCD pad. The Access system then sends the forms into the correct EMR in Meditech SCA – a paperless, hands-free process.
“With Access’s Image Portal, we push e-forms into MEDITECH Scanning and Archiving without generating paper or manual indexing,” Huett said. “This is a huge time saver and we know the forms are going into the right medical record.”
At the same time that it outputs the admissions packet, the Access system generates barcoded wristbands, which ensure positive patient ID throughout the visit, increasing safety.
