Digital consent that provides patients with quality education while it protects physicians against excessive exposure

Everyone likes SIGNUM



Doctors like SIGNUM because it relieves them from a time-consuming and repetitive task so they can do what they get paid to do: practice medicine.



Patients like SIGNUM because understanding the procedure puts them at ease and fosters a postive experience, which in turn, contributes to better outcomes.



Hospitals like SIGNUM because it is an iron clad consent. They know that each patient is being consented consistently with the same vetted information.

Using SIGNUM will protect physicians from unnecessary interactions with [infected] patients.

What doctors are saying...

In contrast to EHR’s…I am not aware of any good coupling of educational content with collecting consent. Signum really does that…it puts your mind at ease in terms of risk management around procedures.

Feedback from our study patients suggests that they have a much better understanding of what they are going to participate in than they would have had if they just read words on a page...they can see what it will be like to partake in the research.
