Have you ever had a medical procedure done? How often have you signed “fill in the blanks” forms loaded with handwritten notes and medical jargon, or been asked to put your initials next to various treatment options? If you have, you are not alone. Studies have shown that 66% of people undergoing a medical procedure don't fully read the informed consent document, much less understand it. Well, each of the principals at Confirmed Consent experienced this at some point in their life, and decided that it was not the correct way to agree to proceed with a medical procedure. Confirmed Consent is not just an electronic informed consent delivery tool, rather it is a web-based, comprehensive, content delivery and assessment tool designed to standardize the way you receive procedure-specific information. It is a new tool to ensure that you understand the risks, benefits, and alternatives of the procedure, and that you are voluntarily making an informed choice without the being rushed, or coerced, and have had ample time to think over this important decision in your life. See below for advantages of the proprietary Confirmed Consent tool, and learn how the process works!
We feel that with more information and knowledge, you can make better and more informed decisions about your care, which in turn will increase your satisfaction with the consent process. Increased satisfaction will foster better relationship with your provider, improve safety for you, and enhance the overall delivery of care.
You will receive the information needed about your medical procedure in a variety of formats including audio, video, and text, to help ensure your understanding of the material. Our system allows you to take all the time you need to watch the confirmed consent video and read the consent information in the comforts of your own home using your personal computer as opposed to being expected to rush through reading a form at your doctor's office or the hospital.
Our proprietary system is context sensitive allowing you additional opportunities to click on active links for more information and includes a method to ask your provider specific questions about your medical procedure. We don’t want you to proceed with the procedure, if there are any doubts or questions in mind and will relay that clearly to your provider.
Our system allows for you to complete your medical procedure consent in the privacy of your own home if you choose. No more reading and filling out informed consent documents in a crowded waiting room at your provider’s office.
Our proprietary system was custom designed and fully HIPAA compliant meeting both the HITECH 2010 standard and the Omnibus rule. We use 128 bit encryption and SSL. We have partnered with our vendor LuxSci who is well known in the industry for providing safe and secure HIPPA compliant server solutions. At Confirmed Consent, we take the privacy of the patients that use our service very seriously and will do everything we can to protect your privacy.
