Electronic forms, specific to the patient visit, are instantly delivered wherever a patient presents. No more guesswork, pre-printed forms or the need to print and stage documents ahead of time. Change forms on-the-fly and update your library without the waste or re-purposing costs associated with old forms.
Streamline Data Collection
ActiveFORMS automates the selection, generation, and routing of forms, and enables consistent document standards for all patient encounters. The system’s business rules engine ensures that the right documentation is produced every time, and takes the burden off of the registrar to remember the selection criteria for every form they use. Each department only sees its own forms and printers for easier use and increased staff productivity.
Reduce or Eliminate Pre-Printed Forms
A huge expense for any hospital is the cost of pre-printed forms, especially multi-part forms, for use in registration and clinical areas. ActiveFORMS eliminates the cost of pre-printed forms and labels, storage needs, and waste when revisions are made by using electronic forms that print as needed and can be easily updated.
Print On Demand
Staff can quickly and easily select a patient, choose the desired medical form(s), and produce them as needed using a standard laser printer. This functionality can be used to regenerate wristbands, nursing notes/worksheets, and any combination of forms for a single patient or a group of patients (eg. all patients on a floor, all patients to be discharged today).
Improve Patient Data Accuracy
All ActiveFORMS documents include standard patient demographic data and bar code identifiers, which reduces the potential for forms to be confused between different charts, and saves staff time from needing to handwrite the same patient data on every form. It also enables facilities to easily pass required JCAHO audits.
More Efficient Document Management
Every ActiveFORMS document is a barcoded, clean original that is ideally suited to feed into the scan/capture process used by electronic document management systems (EDMS).
Create and Modify Forms as Needed
A hospital has the ability to create and maintain their own electronic medical forms, library and business rules independently using the ActiveFORMS design tools. Every change is instantly distributed to all access points.
Transform Raw Data into Easy-to-Read Reports
ActiveFORMS also can be used to automatically reformat raw, unstructured data feeds into easy-to-read documents or reports.
Register Patients During Downtime
Even when an information system is offline, staff are able to enter a basic set of registration data and instantly produce a set of registration forms.
