Inefficient Processes Hinder Hospital Outcomes
Unfortunately, the manual processes that exist in the hospital contribute to the issues the healthcare organization is trying to correct. Paper forms are the primary means to send information in administrative areas of the hospital. The status of mission critical processes remains unclear. Plus, there is no oversight when mistakes do occur, so workflow problems are repeated and bad processes are reinforced.

Stakeholders can build electronic workflow routes that dynamically analyze data captured in fillable electronic forms in the FormFast system and route documents to the right person, group, or location.
Process Auditing to Correct Workflow
In these cases, the manager or system admin can help advance the workflow by connecting the person or group that is causing the delay to encourage them to complete the required tasks. When there is a reason to cancel the workflow, the FormFast system has offers tools to do so.
Often improvements come from simply reviewing the performance and status of the workflow process. Stakeholders can audit a desired workflow process at each step to help identify areas for improvement.
