Practo Tab — Now With Consent Forms!
The Practo Tab was born as the perfect companion for Practo Ray — a means to ensure that doctors would have an all-round solution to practice management.
Today, we are further improving the usefulness of Tab by adding patient consent forms to it.
The purpose of the form is to acquire consent from patients before they undergo any treatment.
Doctors ought to always have consent forms on hand to make sure they would not have to deal with any liability issues after a patient has been treated by them. Medico legal cases could come up as a result of any injury, ailment, or even death that occurs while medical care is being administered.
3 out of 10 doctors are faced with a medico legal issue every year. By having patients sign the consent form, the doctors are protecting themselves.
Consent form on Practo Tab will completely digitise your practice. Now everything you need is available at your fingertips, making it more secure, as well as allowing you to go paperless.
It was easier for paper forms to get lost and misplaced and for you to not have the right form on hand at the right time. Now those problems will go away as everything gets digitised and readily accessible.
Adding the consent form to the Practo Tab is a simple task.
The ‘Consent Form’ icon is available on the patient home screen. You can either click this or select ‘Patient Records’ and from there go to ‘Files & Forms’ to open the same.
Here, you can either create a new Consent Form or select one that is already there.
