By Cody Strate on Jan 7, 2021

Paper-based consent forms have always been the standard for hospitals—until now. An increasing number of hospitals are searching for an electronic signature solution that enables them to present their patients with eSignature capture options in order to eliminate paper, improve the patient experience, speed up the registration process, and provide a more secure process. While electronic signature solutions such as Docusign are commonplace in other aspects of our everyday lives, they may not always be a good fit for the incredibly unique needs of a healthcare environment. At Access, we have over 20 years of healthcare-focused and HIPAA-compliant eSignature experience. In helping over 1,000 hospitals across the globe, we have learned everything there is to know about successfully implementing eSignature technology, and we want to share those insights with you here.

By Cody Strate on Dec 9, 2020

6 Top eSignature Software Challenges & Solutions for Hospitals

By Cody Strate on Nov 18, 2020

Since the HITECH Act of 2009, hospitals have rapidly moved away from traditional paper-based processes towards paperless processesNever before has the healthcare industry seen such a period of technological advancements and adoption over a relatively short period of time. For all these paperless advancements, however, there are still consistent “paper-gaps” within hospitals. This  is very important because what this tells us is that hospitals generally are still struggling with the same paper-based processes. Electronic health record (EHR) systems (i.e., Epic, Cerner, MEDITECH) are wonderful at tackling clinical documentation, but they are less focused on digitizing the processes that can occur between the hospital and the patient. This results in paper-based consent forms, questionnaires, government forms, and so on.
