Mobile eSIGNATURE at Bedside
FormFast’s solution for electronic bedside consent is similar to the version at registration but with added functionality to meet the needs of staff in clinical units.
When using eSignature with FormFast’s integrated eForms library solution, staff can choose to display eForms for patient consent on-demand. Information from the HIS system is passed to the FormFast system, displaying an active patient list and a list of approved eForms. Staff simply choose a patient, choose a form or group of forms, and click the sign button to produce a packet of electronic forms to be e-signed, complete with patient demographics digitally imprinted.
eSignature by FormFast supports a variety of mobile devices, including those operating on Apple and Windows platforms, via HTML5 support. Due to the portability and light weight of these devices, mobile eSignature allows patient signatures to be collected at the bedside in a way that is more comfortable for the patient than other methods.
As with the admissions process, once the electronic forms have been signed, they are instantly archived in the EMR, eliminating the need for manual scanning by hospital staff. This ensures signed documents are immediately present in the correct location in the patient record, improving compliance.
