In today’s health care environment, competition is fierce for every budget dollar. Convincing your executive team to invest in an eConsent tool requires more than saying it “feels” like the right solution or that you were “wowed” by the product demo.

You have to justify the spend and show how eConsent technology can help your hospital in measurable ways. Essentially, is the juice worth the squeeze?

In a word: yes. Especially in the Surgical Suite where 14 percent of procedures are delayed because of misplaced paper Informed Consents. It’s estimated that each delay lasts an average of 22 minutes, and costs a hospital $60 to $100 a minute, depending on the surgery’s complexity.

If multiple procedures are backed up each day, it’s easy to imagine the long-term financial impact the unnecessary delay of missing hospital forms can have on the organization’s bottom-line.

Access can help you justify the expense of an eConsent solution. We created this business case tool to help you show your executives how the technology can minimize the risk of lost paper Informed Consents in the OR, prevent delays and the loss of revenue.

Here’s what’s on the site to help you:

  • Case studies that show how eConsent tools have helped providers such as Halifax Health and Cooper University Healthcare
  • Blogs on topics such as the seven paper problems with Informed Consents
  • On-demand demos for Epic and MEDITECH clients
  • Research studies – with the important parts highlighted!
  • eBooks on HCAHPS scores, EMR integration and optimization, and more

It’s all in one spot and all designed to help you get the buy-in you need. Just download the relevant background, facts and figures, and show your executives how an eConsent tool with electronic forms essentially pays for itself by preventing delays and recouping revenue.

In a perfect world, you’d only have to ask for funding to get the technology and tools your clinicians and medical staff need.

But in the real world, you have to justify the spend. Let Access help you demonstrate how an eConsent tool can help your hospital in measurable ways, and show that the juice is most certainly worth the squeeze.
