Visual Signature Capture streamlines the backend as well. When the patient submits a form, a PDF is automatically created and using HL7, can be imported into your athenaPractice®/athenaFlow® chart. This saves the time and expense of scanning by staff. Visual Signature Capture saves valuable computer space as this PDF will be smaller than the traditional photo scan. Optionally, the PDF can be sent to a 3rd party document management system.
