Informed Consent

The cost and risk of paper-based form processes far outweigh the benefits. Paper forms are easily misplaced, get improperly scanned, and may not be with the right provider at the time of procedure. That causes delays that can affect patient care and revenue.

Transform Your Consent Processes

Signed consents are instantly archived, immediately available, never lost.

Informed Consent by Interlace Health allows staff to gather an eSignature from the patient at bedside or during an appointment, and make the form instantly available to the care team, anywhere, anytime, on phone, tablet or laptop. There’s zero risk of this form getting lost in the shuffle. It’s there 100% at time of procedure.

Informed Consent by Interlace Health

Interlace Health designed the first electronic Informed Consent with both the patient and clinicians in mind. Traditional paper-based consent processes are riddled with difficulties, and cause delays, compliance issues, and stress for staff. We’ve solved those issues for thousands of healthcare organizations.

How it Works

Informed Consent by Interlace Health does away with paper, clipboards, scanners – and even electronic signature devices. Staff can quickly and easily select the correct from within the patient’s EHR, so it’s always accurate. Content can be standardized, and fields marked as required, improving risk management and compliance. The patient reads and signs the form on a tablet or computer, at the bedside or office.

Staff then self-signs the form and date-time stamps are automatically applied. The signed consent is archived into the EHR – making documentation instantly visible to the care team.

Ensure Automatic Compliance

Never again have missing required information on a form, or lost/misfiled forms. Our system ensures all required fields are completed, and that patients have checked or initialed that they understand what they’re signing. Your legally signed and completed informed consent forms are always in the right place in your EHR for audit.

Why it’s Better

Easier and More Accurate

Interlace Health can generate a consent leveraging ORM or ADT messages to avoid rekeying known information. Database lookup capabilities make finding the right consent fast and accurate.

Integrates with EHRs

Informed Consent by Interlace Health integrates seamlessly with any EHR. It won’t even feel like a separate program. We have collaborated with every major EHR developer, and we are able to customize to fit any organization’s workflow.

Extreme Cost Savings

Most hospitals still use paper based systems for informed consent, and store the information digitally. This requires paper and printer ink, scanning, and staff time to manage it. The Interlace Health solution is all digital, and takes significantly less time to manage.

Improved Patient Experience

Where paper forms and tethered mobile devices can make it difficult for patients to read and sign documents, our truly mobile capabilities provide an optimal signature experience for patients. More importantly, they will never have their procedure delayed due to a missing consent form.

Customer Success Stories

“With the mobile consent solution, we can scan the patient’s wristband to get a positive match on the patient – ensuring we have the right consent for each procedure. We are seeing a time savings of 5-10 minutes for the completion of each consent form. Before implementing Interlace Health, our completed paper consents could take a few days to get archived into the patient record – now, it is instantaneous.”

“With Interlace Health, we are no longer losing consents. We are quickly capturing consent, and we have immediate access to them in our EHR.”

Conway Regional Medical CenterBecky McNespey, Applications Analyst

“We love the mobility of our consent process. All we need to do is scan the patient’s armband from the mobile device, and it takes you to the right document in the application. It makes for a quick and seamless interaction between the clinician and the patient, while promoting patient safety – as the arm band identifiers ensure we have the right information for the right patient, every time.”

“In the past, the nurses were doing all this pre-work for informed consent. Well now, the nurses are out of it. With the nurses out of the consent process, they’ve gained time back and our organization has gained efficiency there.”
