Now that we have the Access solution, registrars don’t have to print the forms out, have the patient sign them, and then scan them back into the system. The patient just signs the forms electronically and they go right into their record.

Access today announced that it is recognizing National Health IT Week 2017 by celebrating the benefits that its paperless electronic signatures, eForms and enterprise integration solutions are creating at hospitals across the U.S., Canada and worldwide.

Access solutions enable hospitals to remove paper roadblocks and replace slow, cumbersome, manual processes with fast, streamlined, automated workflows. Whether it’s collecting patient signatures in admissions or at the bedside, submitting a PTO or purchase request in the back office, or integrating clinical device output with the electronic health record (EHR), Access solutions help hospitals create new efficiency, eliminate time-consuming tasks, and reduce the financial and environmental costs of paper. Most importantly, they also improve patient care, service and satisfaction.

Freeman Health is one organization that’s benefiting from its eForms and electronic patient signatures deployment.

“Being paperless is a big deal for our registrars,” said Julie Akins, business analyst at Freeman Health. “Having all the forms in an electronic format and eliminating the need to shuffle all that paperwork is a really big win for them. Now that we have the Access solution, registrars don’t have to print the forms out, have the patient sign them, and then scan them back into the system. The patient just signs the forms electronically and they go right into their record.”

At Galway Clinic, Access’s clinical data bridge enables Galway Clinic interfaces to output directly into patient records, without the need for manual effort.

“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.”
