Electronic informed consent (eConsent) is a modern, intuitive and interactive delivery of consent-related materials that effectively informs and presents new opportunities to help patients and clinical sites worldwide. Friendly and intuitive features such as video, interim understanding acknowledgements, question flagging, and audio narration are consistently proven to increase patient satisfaction and comprehension. Studies have shown this to improve patient retention rates in addition to helping study teams ensure transparency, streamline documentation, and simplify monitoring.
