Informed Consent For Blood Transfusion Mobile App
Core features are free forever
The Informed Consent For Blood Transfusion mobile app allows you to replace your paper informed consent with a mobile device.
How does it work?
The mobile form includes fields to document items such as patient name, diagnosis/condition, date of treatment/procedure, time and captures the signature of the patient or legal guardian. Once the mobile app is filled out a secure PDF is generated. The PDF is easy to share, and a copy is stored in your account for your blood bank records. You can also use the App Builder to personalize and customize this mobile form. Autotransfusion means that patients donate blood before your scheduled surgery, which is then given back to them during the surgery. There are some slight risks, so the blood is not given back unless it is truly needed. Medicare and some other insurance plans may not pay for the extra expense of this alternative, especially if the blood is not given back to the patient. In spite of some potential risks, the transfusion of blood products is relatively safe and often a very necessary form of medical treatment. If the doctor recommends it, the patient should have little reluctance in accepting it. The app allows the hospital to get a patients consent for a blood transfusion. GoCanvas apps can be made HIPAA compliant to comply with patient privacy laws and regulations.
