Sulphur Springs, Texas (PRWEB) April 27, 2011
When a hospital’s health information system (HIS) is down, whether for scheduled downtime, an upgrade or an unexpected reason, patient registration staff members typically register patients on paper forms. In addition to requiring time-consuming manual tasks for the staff and redundant information entry from patients, there is a delay in making patient information available to clinical floors.
To overcome this potential challenge, Brazosport Regional Health System, which provides comprehensive treatment services to the community of Lake Jackson, Texas, selected the e-Forms Repository (EFR) downtime registration solution from Access, the world’s leading provider of electronic forms (e-forms) management, automation and workflow solutions.
Access EFR, a component of Access Enterprise Forms Management (EFM), will enable Brazosport Regional Health System to electronically register new and returning patients during Meditech downtime. With this Access solution, a registrar can print a packet of forms customized to the patient with demographics applied.
In addition, the Access system embeds dynamic barcodes that facilitate auto-indexing with electronic health records (EHRs) via native integration with the enterprise content/document management (ECM/EDM) system. Access’s downtime solution can also be applied in clinical departments to help provide care continuity and enhanced staff collaboration.
