Using Technology for getting Informed Consent - The Informed Patient - WSJ.com

Using Technology for getting Informed Consent - The Informed Patient - WSJ.com: "The Department of Veteran's Affairs, with 153 hospitals, has over the past several years adopted a new electronic informed-consent software program that allows patients to use a digital pad to sign the consent forms, which can then be stored in their medical record. The program, known as iMedConsent, includes a library of anatomical diagrams and explanations written at a sixth-grade reading level for more than 2,000 procedures in more than 30 medical specialties."
