Hospitals have spent a lot of time, energy and resources getting HIS, EHR, ECM, ERP and other “paperless” technologies up and running. But even with a successful IT plan in place, gaps in data accessibility, mobility and security still exist if they’re printing and scanning any forms or using limited electronic forms (e-forms) technology. Information trapped on paper requires time and effort to make it usable to the people and systems that need it for patient care, billing and completing electronic health records (EHRs).
That’s the reason Access, the leading provider of e-forms, electronic patient signatures and clinical data bridge solutions to the healthcare industry for more than 15 years, is unveiling Passport at HIMSS 2014 booth 5175.
Access Passport is a web-based forms solution that provides access to the functional elements hospitals need to remove all paper from their forms processes — making them completely electronic from start to finish.
“Every hospital CIO we talk to says they’re trying to go paperless, but 5 to 10 percent of their processes are still driven by paper forms,” said Access founder and CEO Tim Elliott. “Access Passport will help them get rid of the rest of this paper — all through a single, intuitive and web-based solution.”
With Access Passport, staff can use virtually any device in any location to quickly access the right e-forms, collect information in record time, and capture patient and other signatures without printing or scanning. Once an e-form is complete, Passport can kick off a workflow process, instantly deliver the data to the people and systems that need it, track the e-form throughout its lifecycle and more.
Access Passport’s web-based e-forms technology integrates with other healthcare and business systems so every step in a forms process can be 100 percent electronic. From collecting patient information and signatures electronically to sending data digitally wherever it’s needed, Access Passport ensures routines finally can be free of paper — and its costs and risks — while supporting the mobile future of healthcare.
“Hospitals need solutions that they can grow across all departments, that are easy to use and that save them time and money,” Elliott said. “That’s what we’re giving them with Access Passport, and we can’t wait to see the positive results.”
