What is Mi-Forms?
Mi-Forms is a mobile data capture software system designed to convert handwritten paper forms into fast, secure, and easy to use electronic forms. More than just e-forms, Mi-Forms provides a comprehensive forms workflow management suite. The system incorporates all the capabilities of form design, data capture, character recognition, business rules validation, data export, backend system integration, administrative management, form distribution and information security.
Mi-Forms is used with popular mobile hardware devices such as Anoto Digital Pen and Paper. Additional mobile platforms include desktop, Tablet PCs, Pocket PCs, Ultra-Mobile PCs and the Intel Medical Clinical Assistant.
Mi-Forms software is Validated for 21 CFR Part 11 Compliance and specifically provides a pen-based data capture for EDC and Trial Management System to the Clinical Trials Industry and partners.
How Can Mi-Forms Help My Organization?
In situations where users are highly mobile and a keyboard is not practical, and they need or want to use handwriting in completing forms, Mi-Forms eliminates existing manual paper forms processes yet allows a natural “pen on paper” interface. The continued use of this familiar, comfortable interface means minimal training time and quick acceptance by mobile users.
By eliminating manual paper forms processes for your mobile users, Mi-Forms will save time, increase user productivity, improve the quality of data, and save your organization money.
Why is Mi-Forms a Market-Leading Mobile Data Capture System?
As the market-leading system, Mi-Forms delivers many key advantages:
- Easy e-Form Design
- Efficient Data Capture
- Highly Accurate Handwriting Recognition
- Powerful Validation Rules
- Flexible Database Communication
What Are the Key Benefits of Using Mi-Forms?
Compelling Return on Investment (ROI) is a major benefit of Mi-Forms. There are several ways your organization can save money. By converting paper forms into electronic forms, clients reduce printing and storage expenses. Many clients also save money by reducing expenditures on data-processing and clerical tasks. Data verification and validation rules in Mi-Forms reduce costly errors that could potentially require manual correction or resubmission of forms. Since data is directly transmitted from the field to the client database, there is no need for costly and time-consuming manual re-entry by administrative personnel.
Improved productivity is another major benefit of Mi-Forms. The ability to pre-fill forms data from existing databases reduces the time that users must spend filling out forms. Automatic export of data and images into existing applications and databases eliminates manual data entry and manipulation tasks. By extending the reach of existing applications and databases into the field, Mi-Forms increases the value of existing IT investments. And since the comfortable “pen on paper” user interface of Mi-Forms is easy and intuitive, users need minimal training to adopt a more efficient and faster process. This allows them to spend more time on higher value-add tasks.
What Components Does the Mi-Forms Software System Contain?
The Mi-Forms Software System contains three potential components: the Mi-Forms Designer for building forms, the Mi-Forms Client to display forms and capture data with handwriting recognition technology on the mobile hardware device, and the Mi-Forms Server, which allows for information communication and administration of the system. Administrative features include form change control, form distribution, prefilling of forms data, centralized form data exporting, user management, access and security.
