Thieme EIDO and Indian Medical Association have come together for a partnership to bridge the current gap in the patient consent process and patient/doctor’s awareness in India in digital format. The aim is to bring out patient consent tools in a digital format in addition to a paper format which is not just a need of the current times but also a way forward in the future.

On 26 th August 2021, Thieme EIDO and IMA signed the mutual agreement for the digital consent documents in India to achieve excellence in the vital areas of informed consent and clinical governance. The agreement has been signed with Dr J.A. Jayalal, Immediate Past National President, IMA -2021.

Dr Jayalal said, “IMA has collaborated with Thieme EIDO for providing the consent documents in digital format in India, these consent information documents have made the entire consent procedure more robust. The hospital should use a good, informative and clear information consent process because it is generally known that excellent, informed consent minimises the risks of successful medico-legal claims. We also would like to appreciate the remarkable potential of the Thieme EIDO team who were most understanding and having good knowledge of the Consent platform in India”

The consent documents were reviewed and approved by the IMA’s panel members. In the present scenario, the consent document will be available in three regional languages- English, Hindi, and Marathi.
