Practo Ray Tab introduces digital consent forms for first time in India

New Delhi [India], Jan 5 (ANI): Leading digital healthcare platform Practo has announced the integration of consent forms into the Practo Ray Tab for the first time available across general, dental, dermatology and gynecology practices to further digitize practice management and ensure that patients sign the form before they undergo any treatment or surgery.

Launched in June, 2014, Practo Tab was built to serve as a seamless companion for Practo Ray- the widely- used practice management and appointment scheduling software for doctors and clinics. Practo Tab is an all-in-one device empowering practice management and enhancing patient relationship management.

The digital consent form will further strengthen the existing portfolio of services that are being offered on Practo Tab including, patient registration, feedback, schedule management, billing etc. and help doctors manage their clinic from anywhere as all information is available on the cloud and accessible offline as well as online.

Consent forms are required to be signed for any surgical or cosmetic procedures. A consent form helps patients understand the risks and complications involved prior to a surgery or procedure and be aware of alternate treatments available without having to face any unfamiliar grievance post-surgery.

The digital consent forms available on Practo Tab are legally compliant and uses electronic signatures as per sec 2 (ta) of Information Technology Act 2000.

Further, a consent form also serves as a documented proof of patients' health record before proceeding for the surgery. The Digital consent forms on Practo Tab are tamper-proof; once signed, these forms cannot be changed or modified in any way. Data privacy is of utmost importance and digitally securing them on the cloud is a good way to guarantee this. Patients can easily register themselves using Practo Tab and fill details in their digital consent form making it easily accessible for doctors to view patients' medical history.

"Digitizing consent forms in Practo Ray Tab is a great step by Practo, as all patient records can now be digitally stored and are easily accessible. It is also a better alternative as physical copies can be damaged or misplaced," said President Academy of Family Physicians of India ( AFPI) New Delhi, Dr. Raman Kumar.

"For the very first time consent forms have been given the digital makeover. With the integration of consent form on Practo Tab, we will be able to provide better tools to doctors and significantly improve patient's healthcare experience. Digital consent forms will ensure that every healthcare provider has the required information readily accessible at their fingertips," said Founder and CEO Practo, Shashank ND. (ANI)
