FormFast to Showcase Mobile Bedside Consent Solution at HIMSS 2016

FormFast, the Leader in eForms for Hospitals, to Premiere Informed Consent Automation Solution at Top Health IT Conference

ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI, February 22, 2016- FormFast®, the healthcare industry’s leading provider of eForms, Workflow and eSignature technologies, will unveil their new Mobile Bedside Consent Solution at the HIMSS16 Conference & Exhibition. FormFast’s paperless consent solution enables healthcare organizations to capture the appropriate consents at a patient’s bedside on a mobile tablet. Consent documents are instantly archived into the EHR, preventing lost documents, expediting care and ensuring compliance.

Many hospitals today still rely on paper forms to capture informed consents. This inefficient method can slow the speed-of-care, impact patient safety, and ultimately, put hospitals at risk. FormFast’s Mobile Bedside Consent Solution fills this remaining gap in EHR systems and delivers enterprise-wide operational and efficiency benefits.

“Due to the increasing familiarity of mobile technologies, patients today expect better and faster healthcare services. We have developed a truly mobile solution that helps fill a big operational gap and brings a more patient-centric approach to one of the most critical patient/physician forms of communication – the informed consent,” said President at FormFast, Randy Campbell.

FormFast integrates with EHR systems to present the correct informed consent documentation for patient signatures on a mobile device. The patient can read the form on a tablet, at their bedside, and conveniently sign the form electronically with their finger or stylus. Staff can then quickly self-sign the form and date-time stamps are automatically applied. Upon the submission of the consent form, it is archived instantly into the EHR – preventing lost information and making documentation instantly visible to the care team.

“We identified an amazing opportunity in the market to develop a mobile solution that complements EHR systems, improves the consent process for both clinicians and patients, and ultimately, ensures patient safety and compliance,” said Product Manager at FormFast, Yancey Stout.

FormFast will premiere their Mobile Bedside Consent Solution at HIMSS16, the leading health IT conference. HIMSS16 will bring together 40,000+ health IT professionals and 1,300+ vendors with cutting-edge products on February 29 – March 4, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

At booth #4849, FormFast will give HIMSS16 attendees a test-drive of their automation offerings, which include solutions for: registration, mobile bedside consents, electronic signature capture, human resources, clinical documentation and more.
