Access’s solution is the missing link between medical devices, clinical systems, and our EHR.

Access today announced that during National Health IT Week 2016, more hospitals than ever before are showing their commitment to improving patient care, service and satisfaction through the use of paperless technology. The company’s web-based electronic forms and patient signature solutions are helping hospitals and health systems across the US and around the world replace slow, paper-based processes with fast, fully electronic workflows.

Lincoln Surgical Hospital wanted the ability to speed forms workflows, manage documentation online and have a single, digital location for all its patient forms. That’s why it selected the versatile, web-based Access Passport.

“We choose technology with our patients and physicians in mind, and Access Passport will benefit both by helping us be faster and more nimble,” said Lincoln Surgical Hospital CEO Robb Linafelter. “It’s going to move us closer to becoming a truly paperless hospital.”

Uvalde Memorial Hospital used to spend time manually processing physical therapy consents and hard copies were restricted to one physical location in the facility. With Access’s e-forms and e-signature solution, consents are captured electronically and are available to authorized users from anywhere.

“We’ve gone completely paperless with our physical therapy consents thanks to Access’s e-forms and electronic patient signatures solution,” said Susan Iturbe, Systems Analyst at UMH. “They’ve automated several processes and forms are no longer tied to patients’ physical location.”

Another solution that is helping hospitals get rid of paper and get information into EHRs more quickly is Access’s clinical data bridge. Galway Clinic, one of the most advanced facilities in Ireland, used to print out hard copies from medical systems and devices and then manually scan and index these. This is a thing of the past thanks to the Access system, which captures output, standardizes it and sends it directly into the correct patient’s electronic chart.

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