FormFast for Post-Care Documentation
Staying Connected with Patients After a Care Event with Care Navigation & Document Workflow Solutions
Even after a care event, patients need to remain engaged with their healthcare providers.
Post-care documents, such as checklists, patient satisfaction surveys, follow-up instructions, educational materials, and referrals can be automated by FormFast to more effectively transition patients to new care environments.
FormFast promotes post-care coordination by delivering critical information to patients in their home-care environment to help promote a smooth recovery and prevent readmission. With FormFast, post-care education can be delivered electronically so patient can more easily review them at home, on their own time and with their family members or care takers.
This improves post-care processes and helps decrease the number of costly readmissions by ensuring patients are properly educated on their post-care plans and instructions.
FormFast is transforming healthcare documentation by bringing form processes beyond the walls of the hospital and into the homes of patients, before and after care events. This advances care coordination, maximizes clinicians valuable time and creates a more engaged patient population.
“It’s nice that I can receive documents after a doctor’s office visit or a procedure. Filling out forms on my computer is especially convenient. I’m much more likely to complete them that way, than filling them out by hand and mailing them.”

Care Navigation & Workflow Solutions After-Care
A patient’s care journey does not come to an end once they leave the hospital. There is often still vital information to be exchanged between a patient and health system regarding post-care plans. FormFast provides an easy way for patients to communicate with their health system after a surgery from the convenience of their own home and on their own time.
Patient Satisfaction Surveys
As the strong focus on quality care and patient experience continues to rise, Patient Satisfaction Surveys after a care event have become invaluable. Surveys can truly serve as a diagnostic tool – helping you increase patient safety, reduce liability, and even serve as a marketing tool. Providing patients with surveys post-care, to fill out on their own time, will allow them the time needed to provide detailed, quality feedback.
Post-discharge educational materials provided to patients after a surgery or care event can include critical orders from a physician regarding their post-care treatment plans and other critical information. Ensure patients, receive, understand and follow specific instructions to help accelerate recovery and prevent readmission – an inconvenience for patients and a costly event for healthcare systems.
The ease and speed of the patient referral process can be a major concern for patients and providers as factors that slow the process decrease the efficiency of care delivery and make future referrals less likely. FormFast coordinates referrals seamlessly, allowing for optimal and timely care to the patient. FormFast enables a straightforward process allowing providers and patients quick and easy access to the key people within their care community.
