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.”

Every organization has employees and so every human resources (HR) department deals with employee forms. Some still rely on paper versions, and even those that have an electronic process struggle to get forms data into the HRIS/HCM and content/document management systems.

That’s why we developed the Formatta electronic forms solution for human capital management (HCM). With it, new employee onboarding, employee administration and offboarding become fast, secure and paperless processes. The benefits?

  • Eliminate the cost of paper forms and document loss
  • Extend current HR software environments and online portals by offering employees access to a secure, self-service catalog of e-forms
  • Eliminate duplication, redundant effort and human error while reducing the HR team’s workload
  • Access and complete e-forms online with virtually any Internet browser, within any environment, including on the go with Apple® iPad® and iPhone®
  • Fill out e-forms offline also, when a connection is not available
  • Update the human resources system (HRIS) with completed form data automatically — no manual data entry required
  • Speed e-forms completion by automatically filling in certain fields via integration with existing HR systems and databases
  • Apply secure digital signatures and attach supporting documents to e-forms
  • Complete standardized e-forms and send them for approval through electronic workflow
  • Export completed e-form images, attachments and index files to content and document management (ECM-EDM) systems

What if you could onboard a new employee, review a capital request and approve an expense report without generating paper? What if you could complete e-forms on the fly using your Apple® iPhone® and iPad®? What if you could eliminate the cost, the hassle and the interoffice envelopes from any paper-based forms process?

With the Access Formatta electronic forms (that’s e-forms to the trendy kids) management suite, you can.

With Formatta, users can retrieve an e-form that looks exactly like a paper version, complete it online or offline, and then apply a secure digital signature. Formatta then sends the completed form on to the next person in the workflow. When they’re done with it, Formatta archives the e-form and any attachments in the enterprise content management (ECM) system, and updates the ERP system. No paper. No scanning. No manual indexing.

Denver-based Craig Hospital, a leading rehabilitation center, needed a way to easily create e-forms on demand that printed with patient information and barcodes that would facilitate auto-indexing in MEDITECH Scanning & Archiving. They wanted the same system to simultaneously generate barcoded patient armbands that would support safe medication dispensing.

The solution? Access Intelligent Forms Suite.

“We cannot administer medication without the barcoded wristbands that the Access suite provides,” said Rose Selko, clinical applications support specialist at Craig. “It is an important part of our patient safety initiative.”

Craig’s IT/IS team feels that the Access team is helping the facility make the most of its electronic forms project.

“The Access professional services and support teams are extremely responsive and always willing to help,” Selko said.

TRMC Sunnyvale uses Access’s medication and specimen barcoding solution to apply barcoded labels to medicines in the pharmacy department. These are then reconciled with patients’ barcoded wristbands generated by Access Intelligent Forms Suite at the point of registration.

With Access IFS and e-Signature, TRMC Sunnyvale has created a paperless admissions solution. Once a patient electronically signs their forms, the Access solution sends them into that individual’s EHR, via seamless integration with Siemens EDM.

Hopkins County Memorial Hospitalhad a forms management product, but it didn’t support the facility’s barcoding initiative or allow for easy forms changes.

To overcome these challenges in conjunction with MEDITECH Scanning and Archiving (SCA), Hopkins County Memorial switched to Access Intelligent Forms Suite, which enables hospitals to print electronic forms (e-forms) on demand with barcodes and patient demographics automatically applied.
