With over 3,100 counties across the United States, Formatta stands ready to help other county government health departments with what we believe is the most rapid and cost effective way to improve the delivery times for H1N1 vaccine supplies.
Fairfax, VA (Vocus) December 4, 2009
Formatta, a leading provider of eForms-driven business process optimization solutions delivering increased performance and the industry’s most rapid return on investment, announced today it was launching along with Document Conversion Associates, Inc. (DCA) of Lebanon, NJ, an eForms solution to help speed the availability of H1N1 flu vaccine for County governments.
Using the Formatta solution implemented by DCA, County Health Departments across the United States will be able to automate existing H1N1 Vaccine Consent Forms using the Formatta solution, allowing the County to report vaccine usage to State and Federal health authorities in near real-time, allowing the County to receive new shipments of the H1N1 flu vaccine more quickly.
Under the process optimized by DCA using the Formatta solution, an existing paper-based H1N1 vaccine form is automated and is available electronically to be completed from any web browser. Once the form is completed, the data is routed electronically to a database located on the county server; the form is printed out, signed and brought to the clinic location. After the vaccine is administered, additional information such as vaccine batch number, date and location of the injection on the body is noted. These handwritten notes are then scanned and appended to the data collected electronically from the online form. This combined data is then transmitted to the appropriate State and Federal agencies for reporting. A unique bar code generated upon completion of each online form is the mechanism for matching the data collected electronically with the handwritten information added to the form at the clinic location.
“Using the Formatta solution, we were able to easily replicate the current paper-based forms used by County Health Departments for reporting H1N1 vaccine and are deploying the solution from contract signing to 'go-live' in under 10 days. This demonstrates the strong partnership between DCA and Formatta delivering a solution built for the urgency demanded by the H1N1 crisis," said Cindy Knowles, President of Document Conversion Associates, Inc., Formatta’s reseller and implementation partner.
“We are delighted to provide County Health Departments with the capability to improve the public health and safety of its citizens,” Grant Wagner, Formatta President and CEO. “It’s tremendously important to us as a firm to have the opportunity to put our solution to use to support a cause on every American citizen’s mind. With over 3,100 counties across the United States, Formatta stands ready to help other county government health departments with what we believe is the most rapid and cost effective way to improve the delivery times for H1N1 vaccine supplies.”
