When it comes to health, the last thing clinical and administrative staff have time processes paper forms. S this? Why do some forward-thinking hospitals are turning to electronic forms management.
The management team of revenue cycle at the Rehabilitation Hospital of the Pacific (REHAB) has decided that the facility could eliminate the cost of the order pre-printed forms from a third party vendor to reduce paper consumption and waste and streamline patient registration and addressographs replacing the current process with a forms automation system. After evaluating several products, REHAB selected new Enterprise Access Forms Management (EFM) bathroom.
? access? s advanced technology and knowledge of how health systems work have been decisive factors? Said Ruth Fearnow, systems analyst at REHAB. ? Our positive interaction with Access? S sales teams and project management is also important.?
and his colleagues have chosen to deploy EFM and Access? s e-Forms Repository (EFR) in the department of patient registration, clinical and floors to the organization? s outpatient clinics three nursing units. ? The project manager was very accessible and responsive, which helped us stay on track during the process of project management? Fearnow said. ? The attentive, service-oriented project management and implementation teams have been of great help in making the initial deployment.?
? s proven project methodology and implementation contributed to a hassle-free deployment.
? Because we made our preparations in advance, when the team for implementation of access came on-site implementation of the EFM and EFR went well? Fearnow said. ? The implementation consultant was flexible enough to let me be on hand for troubleshooting and will help me manage the system in the future. We sent him home early because it was over sooner than expected.?
access, most consultants have implemented training in medical informatics and all go through a comprehensive training program that prepares them to meet the needs of healthcare organizations.
? Our consultant was very knowledgeable and pleasant to work with,? Fearnow said. ? I would recommend to other access facilities based on my experience. Sometimes when you buy software, you will encounter surprises that complicate the project, but it was not? T the case with Access. Their professional services team has responded to everything that was promised during the sales cycle, and this consistency has been very helpful.?
When a patient comes in rehab? s registration desk, a registrar in the demographics between the QuadraMed Affinity HIS. Now, instead of gathering forms manually, registration runs an online report and the server EFM captures the print stream, merges the information of the patient? S on all forms required for registration and print the forms.
