Electronic Signatures for Healthcare


The trend to digitize and transform healthcare is accelerating. Healthcare professionals, administrators and providers agree: it is time to transition from paper to digital. As a result of moving paperless, the traditional forms for signing documents have changed. These now require electronic signatures.

The US Federal ESIGN law defines an electronic signature as “an electronic sound, symbol, or process attached to, or associated with, a contract or other record and adopted by a person with the intent to sign a record.”

Medical professionals and healthcare establishments have witnessed the following benefits by utilizing electronic signatures:

  • Expedited signing processes by gathering signatures in minutes or a few clicks
  • Increase staff productivity and operational efficiency by spending less time with paper and reducing administrative burdens
  • Strengthened HIPAA compliance and security
