Wacom And Access Announce E-Signature Integration For Healthcare

Access’ Electronic Patient Signature Solution Streamlines Patient Record keeping with Help of Wacom’s New Signature Pads

Recently it was announced that Access – a leading provider of paperless electronic signature, e-forms and clinical data bridge solutions – has integrated support for the new Wacom STU-530 and STU-430 Signature Pads into their electronic patient signature offering. Wacom’s full line of signature pads and interactive displays are now supported by the Access solution, enabling a smoother distribution of forms across a healthcare network.

On October 26th, the new Signature Pads can be seen live at AHIMA 2013 in Wacom’s booth (#710). AHIMA attendees can also see Access solutions in their booth (#1935).

With an electronic forms management system on hand, healthcare providers can improve upon the manual process of filing, copying and archiving that wastes paper and slows patient processing.This streamlined process begins with Access’s e-forms on demand solution, which ensures all new and updated forms are integrated with the proper electronic health record (EHR). For forms that require patient consent, the Signature Pads are then used to add an electronic handwritten signature, complete with biometric profile across all relevant files.

“Limiting the frequency at which hospitals have to print, scan and store documents, prevents unnecessary costs and gives providers more time for patients,” says Michael Marcum, Vice President of Vertical Markets for Wacom Technology Services, Corp. “Now the entire registration, consent, and authorization process is optimized for the modern medical environment.”

“As healthcare costs continue to rise, efficiency tools are becoming even more important to organizations under pressure,“says Tim Elliott, Access founder and CEO. “Combining our e-Signature solution with Wacom’s Signature Pads is a simple way for medical providers to remove many of the hurdles that slow them down.”
