Consent forms

Consent forms

The main purpose of the informed consent process is to protect the patient. A consent form is a legal document that ensures an ongoing communication process between the patient and the health care provider.In Hcare software, we

have a module that helps in dealing with these consent forms.

This module provides the feature of creating forms by users.

  • Dashboard: Showing buttons for consent forms where you can open a form to get signatures as needed,  and “Signed Consent Forms” where you can view all the signed forms for every patient.

  • Consents: Where you can view the existing form templates and create new.

  • Fields: Where you can create fillable options to include in form creation.
