Topaz, FormFast Join Forces to Enhance Electronic Signature Capture and Automation in Hospitals


SIMI VALLEY, Calif. — Topaz Systems, Inc. and FormFast® have announced a collaborative effort to streamline paperless signature capture in healthcare organizations. Together, Topaz® eSign-enabled GemView™ Tablet Displays and FormFast eForms and eSignature software effectively automate the signature processes in healthcare organizations. The seamless collaboration of the two technologies allows patients to sign electronic forms via the Topaz hardware device instead of on paper forms. The benefit to the hospital is that eSigned documents are instantly archived in the electronic health record, improving compliance and increasing efficiency. As a result, hospitals can capture signatures with confidence – a confidence that comes with choosing reliable and easy-to-use technologies from two industry leaders.

Topaz GemView Tablet Displays are USB-connected, high-resolution LCD displays for client-facing use, integrating half-page or full-page display, electronic signature pen, and bundled software tools. Bundled software is provided for managing one-to-many transactions in client-server environments, or in one-on-one dual-display eSign applications.

“Topaz GemView products provide an easy-to-use tablet-style user interface without the IT drawbacks of managing a dedicated tablet computer,” says Anthony Zank, President and CEO of Topaz Systems. “The ease of installation and integration with FormFast, coupled with the ability to view an entire document page on the signature device, make the GemView a new standard in electronic signing applications.”

FormFast is a recognized leader in eForms for healthcare with solutions that allow patients to electronically sign paperless eForms at both registration areas and at the bedside. FormFast eForms are instantly archived in the electronic health record, accelerating consent workflows and ensuring the hospital is in compliance.

FormFast is committed to supporting the latest signature devices in order to provide the best solutions for our customers,” says Aaron Vaught, Director of Marketing at FormFast. “We’re excited about the new functionality that the Topaz GemView offers as it gives our hospital clients more options when streamlining their signature capture process.

GemView Tablet Displays with FormFast eSignature solutions will be showcased at the HIMSS 2016 Conference in Las Vegas from February 29 – March 4, 2016 at Booth #4849. The HIMSS conference is the year’s largest and most important healthcare IT conference, bringing together over 40,000 health IT professionals, clinicians, executives and vendors from around the world.
