COVID-19 takes your bedside virtual: Tips to build a digital workflow for your informed consents
Wednesday, August 5th, 2020 | 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CT
The world has changed in the wake of COVID-19, and healthcare, like many industries, is left taking a closer look at how it can digitize and streamline daily processes to ensure the safety of their patients and staff.
With surgical procedures back on the books, informed consent has been identified as a process ripe for change. Inefficiencies surrounding the traditional paper-based informed consent process are the cause of 14 percent of the overall delays in operative cases, and now raise new concerns around the safety of clinicians and patients involved in the process.
An electronic informed consent process creates a low-touch bedside environment that is critical in today’s healthcare setting, all while ensuring safety and compliance standards are met.
Webinar participants will learn:
