Taylor Healthcare adds iMedConsent™ platform to VA’s enterprise cloud

Taylor Healthcare, a firm that provides innovative document automation and patient engagement solutions, has recently announced the successful migration of its proprietary iMedConsent™ platform for securing the enterprise cloud built by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

The VA has been dependent on iMedConsent for its surgical informed consent process since 2005.

Chris Civitarese, General Manager, Taylor Healthcare, said that the VA hospital system has been using iMedConsent for quite a long time. However, the platform has been operating independently at around 140 or more VA sites around the world.

By consolidating iMedConsent on the VA’s own Microsoft® Azure cloud, the extra hardware will be excluded, augmenting the security and stability of the overall system.

For the uninitiated, iMedConsent is a pre-informed consent documentation system that automates the process of getting the consent of the patient before the surgical procedures. The platform suffices the demands of the VA’s Section 508 needs. It is used currently by VA facilities around the world, dozens of private hospital systems and the U.S. Department of Defense.

Consistent consent forms explaining more than 4,000 treatments in around 37 clinical specialties are maintained in the iMedConsent system’s digital library.

The practitioner at VA access the proper consent form, modify it as required for each patient, and use that document to describe the procedure to the patient and get their consent.

The patients can sign the form electronically, and then the completed document is stored automatically in the VA’s Cerner-based EHR (electronic health record) system.

Civitarese further notifies that the VA has constantly been working to augment the systems, and the firm is extremely excited about being a part of it. Every month, more than 200,000 times, iMedConsent is used to inform veterans about the various benefits, risks, and alternatives of upcoming medical procedures.

He said that It feels good to know that the firm can educate and empower veterans on the things that mean a lot.
