California hospital will also use Access’s electronic signature solution to capture patient signatures into MEDITECH’s EHR
Sulphur Springs, TX (PRWEB) - Access today announced that Glendora Community Hospital, a 128-bed bed acute care hospital located in Glendora, California, has successfully implemented its electronic forms on demand solution in the ER and admissions departments.
The e-forms product is seamlessly integrated with the hospital’s MEDITECH EHR, making it easy for registration staff to generate forms packets directly from MEDITECH, and send completed documents into each patient’s record.
“Access’s e-forms solution saves time for registration clerks because they can generate forms directly from MEDITECH instead of assembling paper packets,” said Greg Rott, System Administrator at PrimeHealthcare Management. “It also saves money due to the paper reduction.”
Glendora Community Hospital first deployed the Access system in the ER. This department sees the highest amount of incoming patients and therefore uses the most forms. Since this successful initial rollout, the hospital has extended its e-forms project to the admissions department, and the next step is to deploy Access e-Signature in the ER.
“Many of the ER patients go straight to a room, and using Access e-Signature with Wacom tablets will make it easier for them to sign forms while in a bed instead of having to sign five or six sheets of paper on a clipboard,” Rott said.
One of the factors that helped make Glendora Community Hospital’s e-forms implementation go so smoothly was the close collaboration between Rott and Access’s professional services team.
“Access’s project manager has been very helpful at every step and their workflow consultant made sure the product would fit well with the hospital’s daily processes,” Rott said. “They’ve been great to work with throughout this implementation.”
For more than 15 years, Access has developed electronic forms management solutions that eliminate the unnecessary expense, risk and inefficiency of paper forms. Our 100 percent paperless technology enables organizations in any industry to capture, manage, sign and share forms data without printing or scanning.
