Physician Electronic Signature on Orders
We are having issues with the imaging order not having a signature stamp. They are not accepting "electronically signed" only.
Could there be a way to incorporate an electronic version of the doctor's signature as well? They will accept that, but not a hand stamp signature.

This is also a problem in our city of Springfield, MO. As a consequence, we must routinely print out the referral, physically sign it, then Fax it to the consultant, resulting in double (triple) workflow. Have you considered interfacing/partnering with a service like DocuSign. which is routinely used for legal documents and real estate transactions?

We need this for printed prescriptions as well

This would also help with the prescriptions we sent to compounding pharmacies, since there is no way to fax a customized prescription. Right now, I save to PDF then sign in adobe acrobat and email. It would be nice to save the extra time down the road

I work in office and go to nursing homes to see patients. There are a lot of paper orders that require a doctor to put down handwritten signatures. I know that e signature is legally recognized but many different entities are still not able to catch up. Home health companies also ask for handwritten orders. Until the whole health industry accept e signature, please put out a signature stamp feature. Thanks!
