Digital signature for healthcare organizations
How to improve the paperwork productivity in your hospital?
With an average of two-third of their professional time spent in paperwork, doctors are mostly filling documents and have less time to focus on their core activity. Healthcare organizations can be struggling with these administrative costs, often due to the overuse of paper practices. In their journey to reduce paper, hospitals can adopt digital signature or expand it to the many departments in order to:
► Reduce materialized flows
► Offer new dematerialized services to healthcare professionals and patients
► Guarantee the integrity and probative value of electronically signed documents
Enhance paperwork processes efficiency and reliability with digital signature.
