Logical Progression’s Electronic Consent Solution a Success at Alamance Regional Medical Center (ARMC)

Logical Progression, a software company specializing in tablet PC healthcare solutions, announced today a successful implementation of its electronic charting solution, Logical Ink(R), at Alamance Regional Medical Center (ARMC).

Logical Ink(R) creates an electronic chart based on an HL7 feed from the hospital information system (HIS) and provides a natural pen and paper interface for data collection via digital ink and handwriting recognition. Forms completed on the tablet are validated and sent to the EMR seamlessly. By going paperless and mobile with Logical Ink(R), ARMC estimates their admission process has been cut by 5 minutes per patient and has experienced increased efficiency in the bedside registration process.

“We’ve eliminated a step in the process for our registrars,” says Bunnie Overby, Director of Patient Financial Services for ARMC. “They no longer have to scan paper consents and charts.” Overby adds, “We are very impressed with our new tablet PC solution and with Logical Progression. The staff and patients love the solution and the support we’ve received has been fantastic.”

“An HL7 interface, bilingual forms, HIPAA compliance, mobility, custom validation rules at the point of care and a familiar, pen/paper interface are just some of the reasons why our Logical Ink solution is so powerful and intuitive,” says Chris Joyce, President and Founder of Logical Progression. “We are saving ARMC over 673 man-hours per year by eliminating scanning and automatically indexing and integrating with their EMRs.”

Logical Progression and ARMC will be hosting a workshop on tablet-based charting and electronic consent at the NAHAM 34th annual conference in Dallas, Texas.
