Electronic signature for healthcare

Electronic signature has greatly simplified the process of signing medical documents. A paperless signature allows you to reduce costs by getting medical forms signed quickly and effortlessly. eSignature allows patients to sign medical records releases, advance healthcare directives, and complete other documents with a tap on a smartphone, saving time for patients and healthcare institutions.

Another reason to adopt eSignature in healthcare is to prevent documents from being misfiled, scanned improperly, or even lost. An eSignature solution minimizes the chances for these errors to happen by requiring all fields to be filled out properly before the document can be submitted. And the chances of losing your documents are close to zero since all documents are stored in the cloud service, and can be downloaded and printed out.

How to sign medical documents online

You can get healthcare documents signed online with the help of an eSignature service like signNow. By subscribing to the service, you get a set of functionalities that allow you to handle document workflows in a way that is time and cost-efficient. Upload your files to signNow, adjust them by adding fillable fields for information like dates and names, insert signature fields, and send the documents to patients for their eSignature. Having a set of templates to cover all circumstances that require signatures will minimize the time you spend on document management.

After a healthcare organization sends a document for signature, a patient receives an email with an invitation to review and sign the document. The signing process takes no longer than a minute. After the document is eSigned by all parties, both the organization and the patient receive a signed copy of the agreement. The document is then stored in the cloud and can be accessed at any time by either party.

Is signNow HIPAA compliant?

HIPAA regulates the privacy and security of protected health information. Although HIPAA doesn’t specify any particular requirements for eSignatures, eSignature services must meet the requirements of other laws such as the Federal Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN Act) and the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA) in order to be HIPAA compliant.

signNow follows industry best practices and complies with HIPAA requirements regarding the processing and storage of protected health information.

What other signNow features can benefit healthcare organizations?

In addition to eSignature, signNow has other features that can benefit healthcare providers. One of the most commonly used features is an online form creator. Online forms are a great tool for data collection. You can create these forms by adding fillable fields into your documents, regardless of file type, and converting them into PDFs — the customizable format that lets you set editing parameters for your document and assign fields to specific individuals. The document can be then filled out by patients, allowing you to collect accurate data quickly and efficiently.
