Prior to medical treatment, patients must be comprehensively informed about the planned intervention and its necessity, type, and severity, as well as any possible complications. In addition, possible treatment alternatives and personal characteristics must be discussed.
Doctors must prove that they have properly informed their patients in a medical malpractice suit. Without proper explanation in advance, the patient's consent to the procedure is not valid and the procedure is illegal.
Digital patient education with E-ConsentPro Mobile enables the collection of medical history data from home or via mobile devices in the facility, regardless of time and location. Physicians can view the medical history questions before the consultation and get an overview.
Doctors and patients are well prepared for the consultation and can address specific issues and open questions. This saves doctors valuable time and increases patient confidence and satisfaction.
As an alternative to digital patient education, you can access over 2000 printed patient education sheets from more than 30 specialties in up to 20 languages. The patient information sheets are also available as practical sheets with a carbon copy. They contain a comprehensive description of the procedure and its necessity, a medical history section, and a documentation section for recording medical comments, including a consent form.
When your patients are about to undergo a procedure, they naturally have many questions. By playing educational films directly in the waiting room or giving them to patients to view at home, the procedure can be presented in a way that is easy to understand.
As a result, doctors and patients are well prepared for the doctor-patient discussion. Educational films are therefore the ideal supplement to patient information sheets and at the same time a valuable support in doctor-patient communication.
