Analyst Leslie Owens will spotlight an assortment of technologies that go beyond EMRs in supporting Meaningful Use
ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- FormFast, a leading provider of enterprise workflow solutions for healthcare, today announced a free online event featuring insights from Forrester Research, Inc., an independent research firm.
The free webinar, scheduled for Thursday, August 18th at 11 am CDT, will feature a presentation by Leslie Owens, senior analyst at Forrester Research, titled “Electronic Medical Records Need More To Support ‘Meaningful Use’ — ECM And BPM Anchor The Portfolio Of Technologies That Will Improve Hospitals' Processes.”
As the healthcare industry is keenly focused on implementing electronic medical records (EMRs) as incentivized by the HITECH Act, many hospitals view EMR implementation as the key to automating their organization.
However, according to Forrester Research, EMRs alone will not meet all the requirements.
Their findings are structured in a Three-Phase Healthcare Maturity Model. Moving from phase two to phase three workflow is highlighted as an important factor. Owens will review some of the top administrative and clinical workflows that can benefit from workflow and forms automation.

“There are a lot of opportunities for automation in healthcare that haven’t been addressed by most hospitals yet,” notes Shawn Curtiss, director of product management for FormFast. “The clinical space is critical, but it represents only a portion of what should be streamlined.” Following Owens’ presentation, Curtiss will detail how FormFast’s solutions are well-aligned with Forrester’s findings and essential for taking healthcare organizations to the next level.
