When relying on preprinted paper forms, nurses at Olmsted Medical Center (OMC) sometimes ran down to patient registration to get forms for newly admitted patients. They also had to remember which forms were needed for each patient and perform many manual forms processing tasks, taking them away from patients.
Access eliminated this inefficiency. Now, each care area receives a patient face sheet, wristband and labels. They then print their own customized forms packet right in the care area. Seamless integration between Access and OMC’s McKesson Series health information system prefills patient demographics on each form, eliminating the need for the stamp machines. The Access system also enables OMC to quickly create new forms and update existing ones. The results? More time with patients, lower costs and increased productivity.
