Streamline the setup of your practice’s telehealth processes with the new Telehealth Consent Form Template. The template offers system administrators a starting place for practices to develop telehealth consent form language. This saves time and effort in establishing telehealth processes as well as enabling patients to complete telehealth consent electronically.

Create a telehealth consent form to meet your practice's requirements and applicable laws. Enter your own formatted content, ask questions, and allow the patient to sign electronically. The consent forms will be stored in the patient's documents eliminating the need to print, scan, and upload paper forms.

Available for Kareo Engage subscribers.
