Product Snapshot: Consentic
Welcome to the next post in our series of Product Snapshots in the Australian healthtech sector.
Say hello to Consentic, in the words of Co-Founder, Dr Rebecca Saunderson.
In one sentence, describe your service / product?
Consentic is an online medical consent platform, that provides consent that is simple and reassuring for patients, and safer and faster for doctors.
What industry problem / challenge are you tackling?
Consent is unstandardised, time consuming and poorly done. Consentic solves this problem by providing standardised consent animations that explain procedures, followed by a checklist that the patient must complete correctly prior to signing an electronic consent form. This can be safety stored in the medical records.
What is unique about your service / product in your market?
We are a win-win solution, better for doctors and for patients. We can email the consent to the patient to complete on their own - important in this current time of COVID-19.
What is the biggest risk to your company?
There are always risks, and with good planning one tries their absolute best to mitigate those risks.
What does success look like for the company?
Consentic becomes the standard of consent.
