iFORMS provides an easy-to-manage system that replaces pre-printed medical forms with a streamlined eForms library. The medical eForms can be printed as needed, reducing bulk printing costs and storage needs, and can be easily revised and redistributed at any time. The eForms library is built around customizable business rules to help staff quickly identify the appropriate eForms for the patient and situation. Patient demographic data is pre-printed on all eForms therefore barcode labels are not needed, and data collection efficiency and accuracy are improved. The iFORM module converts any data feed into an easy-to-read format, and operates across departments and multiple facilities.
Streamline Data Collection
iFORMS automates the selection, generation, and routing of eForms, 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 eForms 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. iFORMS eliminates the cost of pre-printed forms and labels, storage needs, and waste when revisions are made by using eForms that print as needed and can be easily updated.
Print On Demand
Staff can quickly and easily select a patient, choose the desired medical eForm(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 iFORMS 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 re-write the same patient data on every form. It also enables facilities to easily pass required JCAHO audits.
More Efficient Document Management
Every iFORMS document has a barcode, making it 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 medical eForms, library and business rules independently using the iFORMS design tools. Every change is instantly distributed to all access points.
Transform Raw Data into Easy-to-Read Reports
iFORMS 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.
