Bremen, GA – February 14th, 2022: ShareableFORMS, a company that specializes in converting Ambulatory Surgical Centers and other medical offices from paper charting methods to interactive electronic medical records, announces a unique API integration, created in collaboration with the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF), to fulfill AAAASF’s unique Patient Safety Data Reporting (PSDR) requirements. AAAASF developed its PSDR system in 2001 to study and demonstrate the exceptional safety in accredited ambulatory facilities.
“The ShareableFORMS team is thrilled to be working on this integration in collaboration with AAAASF to provide a streamlined process to submit the required case data into the PSDR system. We have long said that our platform allows for compliant documentation, and this is a direct measure taken to further that mission.” says Bobby Mehan, CEO of Shareable Forms. “Both ShareableFORMS and AAAASF share the goal of promoting patient safety and efficiency in healthcare, and this includes improving physician workflow and care practices.”
With this integration, ShareableFORMS customers who are accredited by AAAASF will be able to automatically pass relevant data captured in the ShareableFORMS platform into the appropriate PSDR fields, alleviating the otherwise manual process of entering case data.
This data integration provides another source of value to AAAASF accredited ShareableFORMS customers, in addition to another collaborative effort to link EHR required fields directly from accreditation requirements. Such mapping gives facilities enhanced confidence in their ability to comply with standards and creates a far more efficient survey process.
AAAASF is a non-profit accrediting organization that champions patient safety in medical facilities worldwide through a rigorous accreditation process, including onsite surveys, management of accreditation standards and other compliance data, clinical survey and investigation results, elaborate user interfaces, and sophisticated reporting mechanisms including PSDR.
“This is a tremendous opportunity to improve an important accreditation process and create more reliability in a critical patient safety initiative. Allowing the EHR system to automatically submit the data that facilities currently manually submit creates operational efficiencies that ensure more accurate data and take the burden of remembering to make submissions off facility staff. It also reduces the chances that facility staff will receive tedious reminders and communications from AAAASF pushing for compliance. It is a set it and forget it type solution that will equip our researchers with better data to study and publish peer-reviewed safety articles, ” says Thomas Terranova, Executive Director of AAAASF.
