Frequently asked questions

What is a legal electronic signature?
A legal electronic signature is a digital representation of a handwritten signature that carries the same legal validity and enforceability as a traditional wet signature as long as it meets certain requirements established by relevant laws and regulations.
Are there any free versions of electronic signature software available for healthcare companies?
Yes, Signeasy is an eSignature software that offers a free plan to let you sign documents yourself and request others to sign them electronically.
Is electronic signature software for healthcare legal?
The Electronic Signature in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN, 2000) granted electronic signatures the same legal status as handwritten signatures. However, to be legally binding in healthcare, eSignature software must adhere to HIPAA compliance standards. HIPPA compliance ensures that patients' medical records and personal data are safeguarded with the right privacy protocols.
What are electronic signature legal requirements?
The key legal requirements for electronic signatures to be valid and enforceable are: Firstly, the document must clearly show the signer’s intent to sign the document electronically. The signer’s identity needs to be authenticated adequately through secure methods. The software should maintain the integrity of the signed document through security measures like encryption and audit trails. Lastly, the software must comply with relevant laws and regulations like the ESIGN Act in the U.S. or eIDAS in the EU.
What is the budget that I need to allocate for healthcare eSignature software?
For healthcare organizations needing HIPAA-compliant e-signature software, the Business plan at $30 per user per month seems suitable. This plan includes features like unlimited document sending, HIPAA compliance, and advanced signer authentication required in healthcare. Signeasy also offers free plans to get started.
