One place. One view. ALL of your forms. Access develops electronic forms management solutions that clear your paper path—eliminating the expense, risk, and inefficiency of paper forms. Our software, including Web-based Access Passport and Formatta, enables organizations to capture, manage, sign, and share e-forms data with other systems without paper, printers or scanners. Staff can interact with paperless e-forms anywhere, anytime using any device. By integrating e-forms, e-signatures, and clinical data into EHRs and other healthcare or business applications, you can improve care, remove the impact of paper, and enhance patient safety, compliance, and downtime planning initiatives. Everything related to forms is in one place with Access — so reduced costs, paper-free routines, and complete EHRs can be real-world destinations.    And, if you’re feeling worn out from all those educational sessions, stop by our booth (4761) for a free latte, Americano or whatever you need to keep you going for the rest of the show.
