FormFast® has an integrated eSignature software solution supporting a wide variety of electronic signature devices to meet the needs of any environment.  With FormFast, your staff will spend less time managing and scanning paper documents, providing more time to focus on patient care.

What is eSignature or Electronic Signature Capture?

eSignature (electronic signature) by FormFast replaces paper forms with electronic forms and allows patients to sign them electronically via a writable device or tablet.  The result is a legally signed document that is automatically sent to the EMR, eliminating unnecessary scanning and contributing to a paperless hospital.

Request Demonstration

Our solution supports biometrics, which looks at a collection of physiological behaviors unique to individuals as a form of identity access management. The built-in biometric feature is controlled solely by the signer, unique to each individual, and capable of verification. This advanced level of security reduces your legal exposure, can ultimately increase your claim revenue and protect from lost or misplaced forms.

Streamline Hospital Admissions Processes and Bedside Consent

Make the collection of consents easier for both hospital staff and patients with e-signature technology.  FormFast automates the generation of documents that need to be signed and walks users through the signing process.  Eliminate the need to store and manage consent documents, giving hospital staff the ability to operate more efficiently.  At the bedside, mobile electronic signature capture provides a convienient alternative to paper-based consents or bulky computer-on-wheels setups. 

Discrete Data Capture

FormFast's electronic signature solution also has the ability to capture additional information in fillable fields and checkboxes.  This allows hospitals to ensure that patient information that is required to be collected along with the the signature is annotated on the electronic forms and included for digital archival.


FormFast's annotation abilities extend beyond signatures as well.  Hospitals are using this solution to annotate electronic versions of physician notes, progress notes, and other types of documentation that require a clinician or nurse to write or draw on a form.  As with the patient signature, these annotations are merged with the digital form image and instantly storage the in electronic document management system.  

Fast Archival into the Electronic Medical Record (EMR)


Once the documents are electronically signed FormFast marries the e-Signature to the document, creating a legally signed electronic document. FormFast then sends the document to Electronic Medical Record (EMR) and archiving systems along with the data necessary to place the document in the proper archive.
