Informed consent is a process documented by a form.
Informed consent is more than simply getting a patient to sign a written consent form.1 Involving patients and their family members in medical decision-making goes straight to the core of providing quality health care. Informed consent has become critical to meeting patients' needs and satisfying legal and regulatory requirements, but documenting the consent process has not been easy.
Now, perimed COMpliance Corporation offers the solution. The Patient Information and Compliance System PICSTM gives you the control, cost-efficiency and compliance standards you need while providing the informational materials patients demand.
While new to the U. S. healthcare market, perimed has been known as a healthcare solutions company in Europe for over 20 years. More than 400 million perimed information and consent documents covering over 500 procedures have been used in that period to help patients understand their medical procedures and help physicians to document that understanding.
We keep you on the safe side of change.
