Smart Consent is a before and after in the management of the Informed Consent procedure.
Traditionally, the process is abstract, impersonal, bureaucratic and sometimes insecure.
New technologies make this process more understandable, simple and satisfactory for the patient and guarantee the health centre greater security in the management of this informed consent. The informed consent software makes it easier for the information transmitted to remain in the memory, helps to socialize more easily to their family environment and increases the rate of patient satisfaction regarding the intervention performed since the degree of satisfaction also depends on information and prior understanding of what was done.
If informed consent software is developed so that patient decision making is an active and conscious process, it will result in fewer patient complaints, as well as being a professional advocacy resource by recording all information provided to the patient and keeping his or her consent on a more secure resource than paper.
