The Importance of Digital Consent and Contactless Consultation Throughout NHS Reset
Wellbeing works with hospitals and NHS Trusts to guarantee that patients are given the opportunity to make informed decisions regarding their healthcare.
eConsent provides a facility for patients to view and consider all pre-surgery information remotely, which in turn gives them the time to reflect and share in the decision-making process, feeling more supported in consenting to treatments knowing what risks and benefits are involved.
In a recent interview with Elemental TV, Stephen Lake FRCS, Consultant Surgeon at Worcestershire Acute NHS Trust, Harriet Corbett, Consultant Paediatric Urologist at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and Matt Smith, Product Director at Wellbeing, spoke about the instrumental role that eConsent will continue to play as hospitals and NHS trusts navigate the journey through NHS Reset towards the new normal of post-pandemic healthcare.
The conversation focussed on the rapid adoption of remote consultations in the initial stages of the pandemic and how that trend has developed over the last few months. Now more than ever, Wellbeing’s eConsent solution is enabling Trusts to communicate remotely and digitally to ensure consistency of care throughout the consent process.
