• Advantages for legal protection and documentation by using medudoc for patient education.

  • Background and law.

    Before 2013, the details of legal issues in connection with medical treatment were predominantly shaped by case law. With §§ 630 a ff. of the German Civil Code (BGB), the treatment contract was then placed on a legal basis. Sections 630 c, 630 d and 630 e of the BGB contain provisions on information, consent and further information obligations of the practitioner.

  • 4 steps to legally correct patient education

    1. Verbal information is mandatory.

    Patients must always have the opportunity to talk orally with the expert doctor and also to ask questions.
    The written form is not a prerequisite for effective patient information and consent.
    Documentation of the individual and timely information is useful.

    2. Comprehensibility of the information is decisive.

    Patients must always have the opportunity to talk orally with the expert doctor and also to ask questions.
    The written form is not a prerequisite for effective patient information and consent.
    Documentation of the individual and timely information is useful.

    3. Individualisation is key.

    The information must always be tailored to the patient and the individual risk profile. A doctor who tells every patient "the same thing" does not fulfil his duty to inform, nor does a doctor who hands out a general information sheet without explicitly explaining what applies and what does not apply to the patient.

    4. Timeliness is relevant.

    The timeliness of the information primarily refers to the preservation of a reflection period for the patient. It is a matter of interpretation, but as a rule, same-day information is sufficient for minor outpatient interventions. For other interventions, this should take place on the previous day at the latest, but must not be too long in the past (e.g. six months).

  • Liability risks due to information sheets

    Existing information sheets are full of legal terminology and medical terms. According to the law, these are invalid if they are not explicitly explained verbally.
    These sheets offer the danger that doctors believe that they are legally protected by them, which is actually not the case and rather favours negligence in the clarification.

  • Advantages of medudoc's digitally supported informed consent
