Introducing Digital Patient Signature for eConsent

With the increased requirement for digital consent and contactless consultations, clinicians need a mechanism that allows patients to view procedure details prior to treatment, with the ability to sign surgical consent forms remotely. This not only saves time in hospital for pre-op appointments, but also reduces the number of hospital visits, in line with social distancing guidelines. Patients benefit from having additional time to review their consent form, while reducing travel and parking fees.

To support this, we are launching a new feature in our eConsent solution (you will find a sneak peek in the video above). The new function will allow clinicians to send documents to patients via email, and to capture their digital signature remotely. Used in conjunction with video conferencing, this enables a comprehensive and appropriate consent process to be conducted in a safe and efficient manner. Integration with existing electronic record systems supports patient identification and validation and enables a digital record of the consent process to be created.

Electronic patient consent has played a vital role during the COVID-19 pandemic and is set to become a permanent fixture in support of the NHS Reset campaign. We are proud that eConsent has been chosen by many organisations to help them to enhance the patient experience and to reduce risk, while ensuring more efficient, fully compliant, safer working practices for clinicians.

Our Director Chris Yeowart spoke at length about our response to NHS Reset across all our specialist divisions in this blog. Get in touch if you would like to arrange a demonstration of our eConsent solution.
