Medical consent made easy
Explaining the risks of medical procedures to patients can be challenging.
Yet robust informed medical consent is a fundamental requirement of ethical medical practice. No matter what type of procedure you’re providing, from the simplest blood test to the most complex surgical procedure, the same medical consent principles apply.
That’s where MedConsent comes in.
MedConsent: an all-in-one online medical consent tool
MedConsent is an integrated online consent tool that unites all professional requirements into one simple, easy-to-use, patient-friendly process.
It was developed by a team of senior clinical and medico-legal advisors to improve the consenting experience for both healthcare professionals and patients.
MedConsent safeguards a patient’s right to be warned of risks, potential complications, side effects and costs prior to medical procedures in the language and level of health literacy that best meet their needs.
The MedConsent electronic medical consent tool enables healthcare professionals to quickly and easily achieve informed medical and financial consent.

High quality medical consent systems and materials – reviewed and maintained by clinical and medico-legal experts – protect your reputation, foster improved communication with your patients and ensure your ongoing ability to practice.
Improving the patient experience
MedConsent provides patients with peer-reviewed, procedure-specific medical consent information presented in simple terms that meets medico-legal and health literacy guidelines. These materials will soon be available in multiple languages.
These materials enable patients to have a good understanding of their forthcoming procedure, reducing the potential for misunderstandings, questions, concerns, anxiety or even formal complaints.
MedConsent assists the medical consent conversation between healthcare professionals and their patients. A well-informed patient is comfortable with their understanding of the risks and benefits of their procedure and experiences an improved perioperative journey.
