Electronic Forms Resource Kit

It is well-known within healthcare organizations that paper forms and the associated support processes are costly and inefficient to maintain.

The Electronic Forms Resource Kit assists healthcare organizations by providing a User Information Web Service and a set of template parts, sample forms and supporting tools. Together they enable healthcare staff to create electronic forms that meet a range of common business needs within a healthcare organization.

This guidance is suitable for use by healthcare organizations that currently use multiple paper forms which:

  • Are difficult to find
  • Are prone to getting lost
  • Are expensive to store and retain
  • Are often rekeyed from paper into one or more electronic forms, which is expensive and prone to error
  • Limit process efficiency because they can only be in one place at a time
