Electronic Signatures from Patients

  • 1.  Electronic Signatures from Patients

    Posted 21 days ago
    Good morning! As we are seeing more and more virtual care we are also seeing more and more need for accepting electronic signatures form patients (for ROI, etc). Has anyone's organization created a policy surrounding accepting electronic signatures from patients and if so what the requirements are? For example, have you vetted one vendor (e.g. DocuSign) vs. another and if a patient signed via that tool you accept the signature as valid?

    Thank you; let me know if anyone would prefer to discuss than email.
