In a webinar scheduled for April 16 at 1pm ET, Aneesh Chopra, who served as the first Chief Technology Officer during the Obama administration and currently serves as president of CareJourney, will moderate a discussion on how healthcare organizations and health tech companies can collaborate to improve interoperability through eConsent. By doing so, they can transform workflows around interoperability and health equity, with the goal of standardizing how protected health information is shared. The panel discussion will also highlight how these healthcare stakeholders are working towards compliance with the CMS Interoperability and Prior Authorization Final Rule.

DocuSign, the leader in electronic signature and contract lifecycle management solutions, and Velatura, one of the nation’s premier multi-jurisdictional health information exchanges (HIE) and health data utilities (HDU) recently announced a groundbreaking pilot project that will streamline the patient consent form capture process for PHI.

Federal and state laws require healthcare providers to receive a signature consent from a patient in order to share sensitive data, including mental health records or information on treatment or referrals related to alcohol and substance use disorder. The partnership between DocuSign and Velatura aims to streamline processes for consent collection and management, while improving care coordination for patients and providers alike. Removing this administrative burden leaves more time for clinical consultation and decision making.

Here’s a look at some of the talking points of the webinar:

  • Challenges of current patient consent for sharing PHI
  • Complex regulatory environments and data sharing challenges
  • Significance of partnership between DocuSign and Velatura, Michigan Health Information Exchange Network’s (MiHIN) commercial arm.
  • How the eConsent solution can improve daily workflows
  • Standardizing consent forms across healthcare settings
  • Future of eConsent

In addition to Chopra, panelists for the webinar include

presented by
  • MJ Jackson, Global Head of Industries, DocuSign
  • Angie Bass, Chief Strategy Officer, Velatura
  • Natalie Spivak, Chief Information Officer, Southwest Michigan Behavioral Health
  • Joseph Wager, Technology Project Manager, Mid-State Health Network
