217.8 million sheets. That’s the amount of paper hospitals have eliminated from their workflows using Access eSignature solutions.

That’s nearly 1,100 tons of paper or the same as 169 African elephants weighing in at 13,000 pounds each. It’s more than 26,000 trees protected and a total cost savings of $4.4 million.

And, that’s just the start.

Our math says if Access clients continue at this pace, by 2050 our systems will have helped providers remove 2.7 billion sheets of paper from their daily operations.

That’s what we call a paper cut.

Access wants to honor those hospitals shedding some serious paper weight. That’s why today we launched the Million eSignature Club.

The award recognizes hospitals for removing one million pieces of paper or more from their daily operations by using eForms software instead of paper versions.

The first member of the Million eSignature Club is Halifax Health in Daytona Beach, Fla. With the help of our solutions, the provider eliminated a whopping 17 tons of paper from their workflow.

As our CEO Tim Elliot said, “Halifax Health is an industry example of the organization-wide benefits that can happen when a hospital commits to a paperless path.”

Million eSignature Club members know the immediate stats on costs, sheets and trees saved are bound to catch your eye. But they also see the big picture. They understand that using paperless forms can boost patient safety and satisfaction, minimize risk, automate workflows, prevent missing patient paperwork, along with the resulting late starts and financial ramifications.

Simply put, these providers are in it for the long-run.

Join us in saluting Halifax Health for being our inaugural Million eSignature Club member. And, visit our site to learn about other hospitals that understand that improving health care starts with passing on paper.
