Why Electronic Consent Forms May Improve Patient Compliance
According to research summarized in Physicians Practice, physicians have less time to spend with patients, and as a result, patients may thus be less clear about their care plans. A solution is to employ technology to generate detailed, procedure-specific consent forms which help patients better prepare for surgical procedures. The solution cited is the iMedConsent™ application: it works on the Apple iPad, it can conveniently email consent documents to patients and it supports “meaningful use” requirements.
