We’re saving 13,889 work hours each year with the efficiencies created by Access’s web-based forms system. This amounts to a $318,890 annual cost savings, and a three-month ROI.

For the past decade, the National Health Information Technology Week has brought together healthcare providers, IT vendors, consumer groups and others dedicated to advancing patient care through wider adoption of healthcare IT solutions.

As it celebrates this week of technical innovation, Access continues to deliver innovative electronic forms, electronic signatures and clinical data integration solutions that help hospitals advance their EHR initiatives by replacing time-consuming, paper forms processes, with fast, automated and fully paperless ones. The web-based Access Passport platform provides a single place for authorized staff at hospitals such as Beaufort Memorial to manage all of their e-forms on any device.

“Access Passport is a one-stop shop for our e-forms,” said Cheryl Hirleman, Director of Information Systems at Beaufort Memorial. “It lets us see where each form is in the process, who needs to take action, and how long it takes to process documents—something we’ve never had before.”

In addition to enhancing patient-focused processes, Access software also enhances workflows in hospitals’ human resources (HR), accounts payable (AP), materials management and other back-office departments.

“We’re saving 13,889 work hours each year with the efficiencies created by Access’s web-based forms system,” said Margo Holden, Applications Systems Analyst at North Kansas City Hospital. “This amounts to a $318,890 annual cost savings, and a three-month ROI.”
