Allow your patients to electronically complete and sign forms at-home for a contactless check-in as part of your complete telehealth strategy

          The Problem  

Paper-Based Check-In

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the demand for telehealth solutions from "nice-to-have" to "must-have".  Hospitals quickly forming comprehensive telehealth strategies to meet the demand, but unfortunately, the telehealth playbook for clinics does not translate to hospitals.  Telehealth visits can translate to an in-person visit to the hospital for patients, and this is where a clinic telehealth strategy ends.  When patients arrive at the hospital, they are met with paper forms along with extended time in the waiting room; both of which increase the risk of disease exposure.  This full-contact and paper-based Registration process does not hold true with the theme of telehealth in providing a the safer, faster, and better experience for your patients.

  THE SOLUTION          

Contactless Check-In  

A complete telehealth strategy for hospitals must include solutions that pave the way for a paperless and contactless check-in process for patients that must visit the hospital.  Contactless check-in extends the function of telehealth in providing a touch-free check-in process that’s safer, faster, and provides a better patient experience.

What is Impression 1 WHITE

Impression” is part of the Passport offering by Access that converts existing paper-based processes into EHR integrated paperless solutions.  We have designed “Impression” to complement your telehealth strategy by enabling your hospital to extend electronic Pre-Registration forms to your patient in advance of their visit.  Patients can electronically sign all Pre-Registration forms in the comfort of their own home in advance of their appointment.  When patients arrive to your hospital, they are met with a contactless check-in process that is safer and faster.  Not only does this facilitate a complete telehealth strategy for your hospital, it also provides the first “Impression” you want your patients to experience.

Contactless Check-In in 3 Easy Steps



Hospital staff access "Impression" within their EHR system, and select the desired Pre-Registration eForms to send to the patient.  



The patient receives a secure email and SMS text message for dual-authentication purposes.  They then electronically sign and complete the eForms.



The completed electronic Pre-Registration forms are automatically indexed directly into the patient's chart within the hospitals ECM system.

“With the outbreak of COVID-19, Norman Regional Health System needed a turnkey e-form solution to pre-register patients for our outpatient clinics and for virtual visits. By creating an on-line registration process we will reduce patient time spent in clinic waiting rooms, increase efficiency for clinic healers, and help flatten the curve by decreasing potential exposures for our patients and healers. Access E-Forms was able to assist us in creating a new patient packet that can be sent to patients prior to their visit, completed by the patient in their home, and routed securely back to the appropriate clinic prior to the clinic or virtual visit.”
