Garden City Hospital Adopts Formfast Software

 

CareTech Solutions Assists with Implementation

Garden City, Mich. – Dec. 7, 2005 – Garden City Hospital recently began using FormFast software to assist medical personnel in creating more attractive patient information forms and secure, easy-to-read armbands. CareTech Solutions, an information technology (IT) and health information management (HIM) outsourcing company for hospitals and health care systems, assisted Garden City Hospital in their adoption of FormFast.

FormFast also supports barcode technology, which will pave the way for electronic storage of patient information and may be used to identify patients throughout the hospital facility. Aside from the benefits in managing patient information, FormFast offers the hospital a significant cost savings over traditional means of creating patient forms and armbands.

“Garden City Hospital is currently working on becoming a “paperless institution,” meaning all patient information, including patient charts, will be maintained by computer,” said Linda McCarthy, Chief Nursing Officer at Garden City Hospital. “By adopting FormFast, we’ve taken a big step toward achieving this goal.”

“Garden City Hospital needed a solution that met the hospital’s current needs while supporting progress towards developing an electronic medical record,” said James Giordano, president and CEO of CareTech Solutions. “As Garden City Hospital’s primary IT services provider, we’re proud to be a part of this organization’s commitment to leveraging technologies that contribute to improving patient care while lowering operational costs.”
