Informedika Teams Up with DocuSign to Streamline Patients’ Lab Orders
DocuSign Empowers Marketplace to Help Healthcare Providers Reduce Costs, Accelerate Patient Orders, and Improve Patient Care
SAN FRANCISCO & SANTA MONICA, Calif. – September 30, 2013 – Today, DocuSign announced that Informedika has integrated DocuSign’s eSignature transaction management solution into its new medical transaction marketplace to help doctors streamline diagnostic processes and empower true Electronic Medical Records (EMRs). The combination of Informedika and DocuSign will help physicians reduce costs, accelerate order requests, and improve overall patient care.
DocuSign and Informedika automates important, yet historically inefficient, paper-based healthcare processes. With the joint solution, lab orders and diagnostics tests can be securely ordered, delivered, and signed-off on by doctors and patients 100 percent digitally. This modern solution replaces closed fax and physical signature-based workflows that still plague many of today’s healthcare organizations and interfere with the mobility of patients’ medical records.
“Informedika and DocuSign have proven to be significantly faster and easier than the traditional way of ordering labs and other diagnostic tests,” said Dr. Tien Trinh, MD, CEO, Akira Health ACO, Inc. “We’re thrilled to simply DocuSign orders so that our patients can schedule their appointments immediately. DocuSign helps us get results faster and begin treatment sooner.”
Integrated with the Informedika e-requisition platform, DocuSign helps:
- Enhance patient satisfaction – Through anytime, anywhere signing on any device, healthcare providers can simplify diagnostic lab ordering and test result delivery to provide a fast and convenient way for patients to get lab results and treatment.
- Expedite document processing – Healthcare providers can create new patient and vendor documentation faster and update patient data with DocuSign’s easy API integration with existing healthcare systems.
- Reduce costs – With less dependence on printing, faxing, scanning, overnight mail, and file storage, healthcare providers can drastically cut their operating expenses.
“Because signatures often determine which tests and orders are paid by insurance, it was natural that Informedika integrate with DocuSign to provide secure, legally binding electronic signatures,” said Steve Yaskin, Chief Executive Officer, Informedika. “Doctors, especially those signing homecare or hospital orders, can DocuSign orders directly within the Informedika solution to make it easy and fast to get orders to the lab or verify referrals to specialists—increasing patient results and speed to care.”
“The volume of paper involved in the healthcare system is enormous—and Informedika has created a powerful solution that streamlines the process for lab orders,” said Tom Gonser, chief strategy officer, DocuSign. “Together, DocuSign and Informedika solve a real paper problem in healthcare to help doctors reduce expenses, rein in paper hassles, and provide a better patient experience.”
