FormFast and Prime Healthcare Services Continue Partnership for Improved Care

Prime Healthcare Services expands the rollout of FormFast document management technology to its most recently acquired facility, Alvarado Hospital, to increase efficiency, lower costs and improve quality and patient safety

ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- FormFast, a leading provider of enterprise workflow solutions, today announced an expansion of its partnership with Prime Healthcare Services, the largest for-profit hospital system in California and the only for-profit system among Thomson Reuters’ Top 10 Health Systems in 2009. All 14 facilities managed by Prime Healthcare Services and its affiliates now leverage FormFast’s logic-based and on-demand document management workflow for increased efficiency within the organization’s medical records, revenue cycle and patient registration processes.

In partnership with FormFast, Prime Healthcare Services has eliminated the use of pre-printed forms throughout its multi-hospital system. By employing logic-based and on-demand printing for necessary documents, patient information is completed legibly and accurately. Likewise, forms are bar coded to ensure positive patient identification and precise scanning into the medical record, resulting in increased patient safety and quality.

“Prime Healthcare Services is pleased to announce that in embracing healthcare IT solutions, such as the document management system from FormFast and an electronic health record (EHR), all of our 14 facilities will now experience a significant increase in efficiency, and improved accuracy of clinical and administrative information,” says Sreekant Gotti, corporate Chief Information Officer of Prime Healthcare Services. “We have passed these benefits on to our patients in the form of heightened safety and quality of care.”

FormFast solutions have been seamlessly integrated with various other technologies in use at Prime Healthcare Services’ hospitals, including McKesson’s Horizon EHR and the MEDITECH client server hospital information system.

“The outcome of our partnership with Prime Healthcare Services demonstrates the quality results that can be achieved by hospitals throughout the country,” says Rob Harding, President and Chief Executive Officer of FormFast. “We are proud to play a part in Prime Healthcare Services’ success in raising the bar with HIT solutions.”
