William Beaumont Army Medical Center, a Department of Defense medical facility located in El Paso, Texas, has recently installed Dialog Medical’s iMedConsent application.

According to Dialog Medical (Duluth, Ga.), iMedConsent includes procedure-specific consent forms for more than 2,100 medical and surgical procedures; patient education documents for thousands of diagnoses and treatments; and an anatomical image gallery that allows the physician to annotate images and simplify complex topics for the patient.

In addition, the application automates the completion of patient documentation ranging from HIPAA disclosures to advance directives, including the digital capture of signatures, paperless storage of signed documents, and electronic notation in the patient’s medical record, says the company.
