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.”

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.
