Access Passport has very strong integration with MEDITECH and makes it easy to get forms and signatures into patients’ electronic records. Access and MEDITECH are the perfect combination for any hospital that wants an integrated EHR instead of silos.

Access today announced that Galway Clinic, a 146-bed community hospital in Galway City, Ireland, is using its electronic patient signatures, e-forms, and clinical data bridge solutions to extend its electronic medical records initiative.

When Galway Clinic found out that their electronic patient signatures vendor was sunsetting their system and that they would need to purchase the replacement product, they turned to Access, the leading provider of such paperless solutions, for an alternative option. After learning more about the company’s offerings, Galway Clinic decided to purchase the Access Passport web-based e-forms solution.

“Access Passport will help us manage forms electronically across the facility – from patient-focused areas to finance, HR, and other administrative departments,” said Raphael Jaffrezic, Chief Information Officer at Galway Clinic. “It will make all our documents available online and it will help us improve our workflows.”

When Galway Clinic compared electronic signatures and e-forms systems, one of the key evaluation factors was how well they worked with MEDITECH’s 6.x EHR.

Access’s proven integration at hospitals worldwide influenced Jaffrezic’s decision. “Access Passport has very strong integration with MEDITECH and makes it easy to get forms and signatures into patients’ electronic records,” he said. “Access and MEDITECH are the perfect combination for any hospital that wants an integrated EHR instead of separate information silos.”

Another Access solution is also helping improve information sharing between systems and staff in clinical areas.
Previously, Galway Clinic found it challenging to get output from certain clinical systems and medical devices into patient records. “We had to print reports and then scan and index them, which was very time consuming,” Jaffrezic explained.

Access’s clinical data bridge solves this problem, enabling Galway Clinic to electronically interface output directly into patient records in MEDITECH’s EHR without paper or manual effort. Current use cases include the consultant suites online booking application and Endoscopy, ICU, and Urology systems.

Access’s solution is the missing link between medical devices, clinical systems, and our EHR,” Jaffrezic said. “It enables us to continue the flow of electronic information.”
