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 That still leaves 20 percent of hospitals using outdated paper forms.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 eForms Give Surgeons and Patients What They Want

By Brandy Taylor on Apr 12, 2018

Surgeons are truly a special type of people. I not only worked for a surgeon (as a nanny) in my younger years, but have the pleasure of being close friends with a couple of amazing surgeons now. A few words come to mind when thinking about a surgeon: driven, dedicated, get-it-done, no nonsense, growth-oriented, pro-change (if it makes sense). Overall, I think we can all agree that surgeons like to get things done—and get it right the first time. And we are all thankful for that.
