Access has seen great benefits from our sponsorship of Meditech Connect and we look forward to introducing more hospitals to our electronic signature, clinical data bridge and e-forms solutions through Siemens Healthcare Social.

Access today announced that it has extended its relationship with Inpact LLC, a top provider of online and social media communities for healthcare IT users and vendors, to include sponsorship of Siemens Healthcare Social.

Building on the proven platform of Meditech Connect, which now has more than 4,000 users, Siemens Healthcare Social brings hundreds of healthcare professionals who use Siemens® together with vendors who can help them get more from their solutions, including Soarian®, Invision® and MedSeries4® (MS4).

“Access has seen great benefits from our sponsorship of Meditech Connect and we look forward to introducing more hospitals to our electronic signature, clinical data bridge and e-forms solutions through Siemens Healthcare Social,” said Access founder and CEO Tim Elliott. “The site also gives us a way to interact with current customers in real time, which helps them and us.”

Hospitals across the U.S. and Canada use Access solutions to bridge the gaps between their clinical, health information and process and content management systems. Access’s e-forms on demand system pulls patient data onto customized patient registration packets from Siemens Invision, Soarian or MS4. The patient then completes the rest of the form fields, applies a secure electronic signature and the Access solution sends the forms into the correct EHR via Siemens EDM/ the ECM system.

At the point of registration, the Access system also generates bar-coded wristbands that ensure positive patient ID and can create bar-coded labels for IV bags, specimen bottles and medication to further enhance patient safety, in conjunction with Siemens BMV and pharmacy modules. Another Access solution captures data from clinical devices and systems (including EKG traces, perinatal docs and colonoscopy reports), standardizes it and sends it into the EHR — another paperless, data-entry-free solution.

As part of its Siemens Healthcare Social sponsorship, Access has a presence within the site’s virtual trade show, The Floor Plan, and a discussion group for those who want to join it. (Membership is free once an individual creates a free profile on the site.) Members can discuss Access solutions, ask the Access team and hospital users questions, and discover the latest developments in e-forms, electronic patient signature and related technology.

Access is also hosting Siemens-focused webinars, the first one presenting a leading Texas hospital’s paperless success story, which will take place on Tuesday, March 19 at 2 p.m. Eastern Time.
