Why Every Hospital Needs an eForm Management Solution for Surgical Consent

By Randy Hippe on May 7, 2018

Hospital staff and anxious patients have many forms to complete before elective surgery.

Even though paper forms slow down staff productivity, waste money, introduce unnecessary risk, and add little to a positive patient experience, many hospitals have not adopted an eForm management solution. According to federal statistics, as of 2015, about 80 percent of acute care hospitals had an EHR using digitized surgical consent forms―up from less than 10 percent in 2008. That still leaves 20 percent of hospitals using outdated paper forms.

How Hawaii’s Busiest Emergency Room Went Paperless with Electronic Patient Signatures. (Your Hospital Can, too.)

By Clayton Homme on Apr 26, 2018

It seems like almost every healthcare IT vendor these days is touting their “touch free” or “paper free” technology, to the point where “paperless” is no longer a “nice to have” but an expectation. The dirty little secret for most vendors and their solutions? While they do remove some hard copies, they also leave behind pesky pockets of paper. This leaves staff members to retrieve forms and get patients to complete and sign them, both at the bedside and in registration. Then those forms need to be copied, sent to medical records/HIM and scanned. It perpetuates a time-consuming, error-prone process which delays the availability of information for clinicians and timely care for patients.
