New DocuSign eSignature Solution Streamlines Patient Onboarding, Reduces Healthcare Costs

DocuSign Partners with Healthcare Industry Leader Kryptiq to Improve Patient Experience via eSignature

SAN FRANCISCO – HIMSS13 – March 4, 2013 DocuSign, the global standard for eSignature, announced today at the Healthcare Information & Management Systems Society (HIMSS) annual conference a partnership with Kryptiq to launch a new eSignature solution that helps to eliminate paper from the patient onboarding process.  The  product, developed for the healthcare market by Kryptiq using DocuSign’s eSignature platform accelerates speed to patient care, reduces healthcare costs, and creates a better experience for both patients and staff.

The partnership between DocuSign and Kryptiq optimizes the patient onboarding experience by eliminating the traditionally manual, error prone, paper-based process. With DocuSign, providers and their patients can complete consent, history, and registration forms from anywhere, anytime, on any device in advance of a doctor appointment. The new product reduces paperwork, as well as the costs and errors associated with re-keying data that has traditionally been provided by patients using pen, paper and clipboard. DocuSign and Kryptiq will continue to expand the eSignature product to additional workflows and markets to address needs throughout the healthcare industry.

“Kryptiq has grown over the past 10 years by understanding healthcare workflows, and creating the health IT solutions that improve these workflows to produce better care,” said Kryptiq CEO Luis Machuca. “We’ve built our company with exceptional partners, and we’re thrilled to be working with DocuSign to take on the paper problem in healthcare. Their leadership, combined with Kryptiq’s expertise, means we can work together to eliminate paper, waste and errors for customers across the country.”

DocuSign helps doctors’ offices and healthcare providers:

  • Enhance patient satisfaction – Through anytime, anywhere signing on any device, the product offers a fast and convenient way for patients to complete their forms and see the doctor sooner.
  • Expedite document processing – Practices receive all patient forms and signatures electronically and update patient data with easy integration with existing systems. Practice staff can eliminate the inefficient process of printing forms, manually re-keying data, scanning and shredding, all while ensuring better data accuracy.
  • Reduce costs – With less dependence on paper, printing, faxing, overnight mail, and file storage, healthcare companies can drastically cut their operating expenses, while reducing risks associated with data entry errors.

“DocuSign is proud to work with industry leader Kryptiq to reduce the amount of time patients have to wait to see the doctor and get needed treatment,” said Patric Wiesmann, market director for healthcare, life sciences and pharmaceutical solutions at DocuSign. “DocuSign helps healthcare professionals reduce costs while delighting their patients with a better, faster and more convenient way to receive care.”
