Hospital Downtime SolutionWith features such as drop list fields and easy to read action buttons, your registration staff will have no problem adapting to the downtime situation.


Downtime Physician Orders sets are published in FastFlow so they are available via a web browser across your network. In addition to downtime scenarios, FastFlow allows internal and external clinicians to access and initiate order workflows to bolster or backup more complex order entry processes.


FormFast provides a system to monitor and record Admission, Discharge, and Transfer data, providing a snapshot of your patient information prior to the Information System downtime event. FormFast applications use this information to provide demographic information for patient related processes. In the event of scheduled downtime, FormFast makes it easy to print a packet of essential forms and documentation for any or all patients so you can safely continue care through the downtime period.



FormFast’s Downtime solutions drive the following benefits:

  • Reduced communication errors during a downtime event
  • Improved clinician satisfaction through easily accessible, online forms compliance with hospital policies and procedures during downtime
  • Increased patient safety
  • Business continuity which allows patients to be admitted, care to be delivered, and orders to be processed during a downtime event
