For the very first time consent forms have been given the digital makeover. Practo, the leading digital healthcare platform has announced the integration of consent forms into the Practo Ray Tab for the first time. Available across general, dental, dermatology and gynaecology practices; the integration is aimed to further digitise practice management and ensure that patients sign the form before they undergo any treatment or surgery.
Clinics can customise the form as per their needs and create different consent forms based on different treatments.
In June, 2014 Practo Tab was built to serve as a seamless companion for Practo Ray- the widely- used practice management and appointment scheduling software for doctors and clinics. Practo Tab is an all-in-one device empowering practice management and enhancing patient relationship management.
The digital consent form will further strengthen the existing portfolio of services that are being offered on Practo Tab including patient registration, feedback, schedule management, billing etc. and help doctors manage their clinic from anywhere as all information is available on the cloud and accessible offline as well as online.

With the integration of consent form on Practo Tab, we will be able to provide better tools to doctors and significantly improve patient’s healthcare experience.
