Deploying electronic forms delivers time, cost and environmental benefits at any hospital. But to create fully paperless registration and bedside consent processes, facilities need to also implement an electronic patient signature solution. With e-forms and e-Signature, they can:

  • Enable patients to electronically sign admissions packets and consent forms using a signature pad/tablet
  • Send these forms directly into the ECM system without paper or manual indexing
  • Boost patient safety and data integrity with tamper-proof signature
  • Reduce liability by also capturing biometrics, which are easily accessed during e-Discovery or other proceedings to prove patients signed consents

Sounds pretty good, right? But you’re probably wondering what hospital staff and patients think. We’ve got you covered:

“Registration was so much quicker and easier with Access’s e-Signature, because everything was right there on the screen and just required a quick electronic signature,” said Mary Udy, a patient at Tomball Regional Medical Center.  “I’m used to filling out a stack of forms and waiting at least 30 minutes when I go somewhere for treatment, but this time it took less than five minutes.”

 “The combination of Access’s e-forms and electronic patient signature solutions and Wacom’s tablets has created a fast, paperless registration process,” said Cherie Patterson, Patient Access Applications Trainer at Greater Baltimore Medical Center. “It has furthered reduced our paper costs and several patients have commented on how much better their registration experience is now.”

Got to give a standing ovation to Mark, our booth designer, for another stellar effort. I’ve focused the pics below on several new signs he constructed (forgive the crummy image quality. Camera on my tablet. Whaddya gonna do?) Our goals with these signs? The simple who (we are), what (we do/our products do), and why (you should talk to us – if you’re struggling with paper forms, for example, or need to get clinical output into EMRs). Ok, enough self-congratulation. Read the next post to find out more about some less than stellar messaging in certain other booths…Going to wander to find better Wi-Fi: the data speed is pre-dial up with all the iPads and “smart” phones sucking out the juice like a vampire in an over the top Vegas show…

Hospitals searching for the right electronic signature solution should look no further than the new offering from Access and Wacom. With it, patients apply secure, tamper-proof e-signatures using Wacom’s battery-free and cordless signature tablets to e-forms generated on demand.

When completed, Access Intelligent Forms Suite sends the forms into the correct patient’s electronic medical record (EMR) via the enterprise content management (ECM) system: no manual indexing or scanning needed.

The new solution supports e-Discovery, ARRA EHR Meaningful Use, FTC Red Flag and more by enabling authorized users to easily retrieve biometric data and the signature image.
