6 benefits of app-less electronic signature

For many home-based care providers, difficulty obtaining signatures can delay claims documentation, which can ultimately impact cash flow. While no provider is immune to this challenge, each care setting faces unique obstacles when trying to capture signatures.

  • Hospice providers frequently need signatures from remote family members.
  • Home-based care agencies often rely on physicians or pharmacists, who are sparsely available, to sign timely documentation.
  • Specialty pharmacies must navigate the busy schedules of physicians to confirm medical orders or ensure consent.
  • Home infusion providers need signed documentation from patients before they can start therapy.
  • Ambulatory infusion clinics require signatures to dispense drugs for patients at their visits.

With app-less electronic signatures using Magic Link technology, users can securely receive, sign, and return documentation — all from one simple platform. Magic Link is a path to capturing signatures through a secure link in either a text or email, based on the user’s preference. After clicking a link received from a known sender, it automatically authenticates you and takes you to a secure environment, eliminating the need to input your username and password.

Imagine trying to get a signature from a busy physician:

Regardless of care setting, chasing down paper signatures is time consuming and can be a waste of valuable resources. Here are six benefits of app-less electronic signatures:


This technology is the fastest way to securely obtain critical signatures from physicians, POAs and other important stakeholders.


Because it is easy to use and does not require the end-user to log in with a username and password, the end-user is more likely to comply with the request and immediately respond without requiring multiple reminders.


Documentation can be signed anywhere and at any time on a computer, smartphone, or tablet.


Because the Magic link technology we use is a one-time authentication link with a limited duration that only the end-user can access, it provides a high level of security. And no PHI is included in the text or email, making it even more safe.


When clinical staff spend less time chasing documentation and signatures, they can spend more time providing care.

Cash flow

Expediting signatures can make a huge difference in cash flow, since healthcare organizations can submit reimbursement documentation more quickly.

App-less signatures are a time-saving feature and an essential component of virtual patient care.
