Healthcare Companies Standardize on DocuSign as Their Trusted Solution for Electronic Signature

DocuSign eSignature Solution Helps Healthcare Organizations Enhance Patient Satisfaction, Expedite Medical Document Processing, and Reduce Costs

SAN FRANCISCO – February 14, 2012DocuSign, the global standard for electronic signature, announced today that the nation's leading healthcare companies have standardized on DocuSign for electronic signature to enhance patient satisfaction, expedite medical document processing, and reduce costs.

“For healthcare companies, speed can often make a tremendous difference in their ability to care for patients,” said Keith Krach, chairman and CEO of DocuSign. “DocuSign’s electronic signature solution helps healthcare organizations and providers get documents completed faster so that patients may be treated quickly. In a time where costs are skyrocketing, DocuSign helps reduce operating expense for healthcare companies, as well as making it easier for patients to receive the treatment they need and get healthy fast.”

Leading healthcare companies have standardized on DocuSign’s electronic signature solution to complete healthcare and medical documentation—including Bayer, Boston Scientific, BioMarin, Examination Management Services, Inc. (EMSI), HEALTHCAREFirst, Indiana Emergency Care, Medtronic, McKesson, Milwaukee Health Services, Sound Physicians, vRad and Wellmark. In addition, pharmaceutical companies accustomed to digital signature under the SAFE-BioPharma standard are choosing DocuSign for non-regulated transactions because DocuSign helps:

  • Enhance patient satisfaction – Through anytime, anywhere signing on any device, healthcare companies can use DocuSign to deliver a fast and convenient way for patients to complete documentation and begin treatment.
  • Expedite document processing – Healthcare companies can create new patient and vendor documentation faster and update patient data with DocuSign’s easy integration with existing systems.
  • Reduce costs – With less dependence on paper, printing, faxing, overnight mail, and file storage, healthcare companies can drastically cut their operating expenses.

“Ensuring that our health plan clients and their members receive qualified professional care as efficiently as possible is a primary priority,” said Nick Smith, vice president of network development at Examination Management Services, Inc. “We chose DocuSign to help us expedite all the necessary documentation, including obtaining medical professionals’ signatures, in a secure, compliant manner while also cutting costs to make the entire process extremely easy, fast, and convenient for members.”

“We use DocuSign for physician credentialing paperwork at two of our hospitals, and it has saved us hundreds of hours this year and accelerated the credentialing process,” said Stephanie Hanslow, business application delivery director at Indiana Emergency Care. “This has allowed us to move our new physicians into the sites in a more timely manner, allowing them to care for the sick and injured.”

“DocuSign helped NightHawk, which was acquired by vRad two years ago, receive completed documents from doctors 15 days faster than before,” said Katie Kay, applications department supervisor at NightHawk. “We’ve gotten positive feedback from doctors who appreciate that we make it easy to work together, and vRad continues to value the speed and convenience of DocuSign.”
