Access interface now seamlessly integrates into MEDITECH Expanse EHR; expands to clinical areas at Halifax Health
Access eForms Management announced two big “firsts” at the site of its long-time client, Halifax Health in Daytona Beach, Fla. The Access eForms User Interface now seamlessly integrates into the MEDITECH Expanse Enterprise Health Record, which greatly improves the workflow of the Halifax Health clinicians by ensuring they never have to leave their MEDITECH experience.
In addition, Access expanded its Halifax Health footprint beyond the provider’s Registration department to include MEDITECH integrated and tablet-enabled electronic Informed Consent solutions for the hospital’s Cardiac Catheterization Lab and Anesthesiology department.
Invisible technology, benefits you can see
Halifax Health clinicians can now launch the Access Informed Consent paperless solution seamlessly from within the MEDITECH Expanse EHR. Instead of making a clinician leave the EHR experience to use the Access application, the user’s Expanse experience is virtually extended. With this seamless transition, most Halifax Health clinicians don’t know they’ve switched from MEDITECH Expanse to the Access solution.
“The integration of Access into MEDITECH Expanse may sound like a technicality but it means our clinicians can spend less mental energy juggling between applications and more time on patient care,” said Tom Stafford, Halifax Health CIO. “While the switch in applications may not be visible to the user, our clinicians can definitely feel the benefit of fewer clicks and a more streamlined workflow.”
‘The best Informed Consent solution, period’
Access also expanded its presence at Halifax Health to include the clinical setting. The hospital now has the electronic Informed Consent solution in its Cardiac Catheterization Lab and Anesthesiology department. Previously, the hospital had the Access technology only in its Registration department.
As part of the growth to other parts of the hospital, Halifax Health clinicians are utilizing tablets to present Informed Consents to patients for their consumption and electronic signature capture.
“When you can improve on-time starts in the OR, make the surgical staff happier, reduce risk, and improve the patient experience all in one go, that’s a tremendous win,” added Stafford. The MEDITECH integrated Informed Consent solution from Access is the catalyst to driving all this positive change. Access eForms is the best Informed Consent solution, period.”
