Forms on Demand:

eSignature Solutions

Electronic Signature

All FormFast forms are designed to use an electronic signature, which eliminates the need for paper forms and scanning. Patients can sign on a tablet or other writable device, completing a document that is legal, and automatically stored in your EHR. These are ideal for Informed Consent or any document that requires a legal signature.

Our electronic signature solution uses biometric technology, which uses the patient’s unique physiological behaviors as a form of identity. FormFast Electronic Signature provides an advanced level of security that can reduce your legal exposure.

eSignature at Registration

FormFast automates the generation of documents for patient signature by analyzing patient information sent from the registration system via an ADT or print stream connection. FormFast eForms are selected and grouped based on pre-defined logic and imprinted with patient-specific demographic information.

The eForms are then displayed on a secondary monitor making it easy for patients to read and understand the forms they are required to sign. Patients apply their signature on a signing device similar to those found at retail store checkout stations. The signature is displayed on the FormFast eForm in real time, giving the patient confidence that their consent is being properly recorded.

In addition to signature capture, FormFast also supports other types of annotation, including checkboxes and fillable fields, as part of the electronic signature solution. Once the documents are electronically signed, FormFast marries the signature and other annotations to the form image, creating a legally signed electronic document.

FormFast then sends the document to the electronic medical record or archiving system, along with the data necessary to place the document in the proper archive location.

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.
