IMS EasySign: Revolutionizing Patient Forms Through Improved Mobility
Posted by Paolo Gabriel Demillo
With more patients accustomed to mobile conveniences, you need more than just digitization to thrive and succeed. Adding better mobility to your workflows and processes will give you that much-needed edge over your competitors and instantly make your practice more appealing to discerning patients.
The patient intake and form-signing processes are vital stages of patient care. It's where practices usually collect the necessary patient forms for consent and authorization. However, it’s also a source of headache for patients and medical staff members alike, especially those working in practices that still use either paper-based forms or traditional electronic health record (EHR)-integrated digital forms.
The traditional form-signing process is prone to organizational risks, collection challenges, and storage limitations. A recent survey found that 63% of providers say that poor document storage and retrieval capabilities expose their consent process to undue risks.
This is why taking your form signing process mobile is key to improving patient and staff experience. On top of streamlining your patient intake workflow, it also makes file management safer and more convenient.
Embrace Digital Patient Forms & E-Signature
Besides the heavy administrative burden it puts on your staff, a traditional form-signing process can also hurt patient satisfaction rates. Especially today, where consumerist mindsets heavily influence patient expectations, the last thing you want to do is overwhelm them with paperwork.
Generally, patients prefer to deal with as little paperwork as possible. However, having them fill out and sign forms on a computer doesn't improve the experience. They still have to scroll through several pages of documents and use an unreliable signature pad to sign them.
You can meet your patients' demand for better convenience by making your form-signing process more mobile. From reducing waste and cost to improving data accuracy, security, and patient experience, mobile digital forms bring immense benefits to your practice.
