Capital Expense Request


Business Need

The Capital Expense Request process can be a lengthy one. The request can sit on someone’s desk for weeks at a time, only to be rejected at the last minute for a lack of supporting documentation. The requests float from desk to desk, department to department, without the originator ever really knowing the status of their request.



FormFast’s workflow automation platform enables every department in the hospital to submit online Capital Expense Requests that flow through to the appropriate personnel for approval. Features of this automated workflow include:

  • Automatic routing based on total dollar value of request captures appropriate approvals
  • Automatic routing ensures Capital Expense Request policies are enforced and followed
  • The workflow’s audit trail adds accountability to the process
  • Email notifications for each step of the workflow process keep the requester informed about the request’s progress
  • Ability to add attachments to the workflow, including:
    • Requirements
    • Specifications
    • Quotes from multiple vendors
    • Minutes from committee meetings
