About Concentric

Consent to treatment is a key element of care, impacting the quality of clinical decision-making, experiences of patient-centred care and organisational medico-legal risk. The current consent process is suboptimal for patients and clinicians giving rise to inefficiencies and even errors. Concentric Health is a digital healthcare company working to transform the way decisions are made about our health, informed by patient outcomes, and shared by patient and clinician.

Concentric's digital consent to treatment application has digital consent functionality, making it easy for clinicians to share personalised information with patients. Clinicians use Concentric to create electronic consent forms. By selecting the proposed treatment, they are presented with relevant template concepts and resources to support each consent form element, tailoring them to the individual patient. There is a full audit trail and data is crypto- graphically secured. Use of Concentric results in a reduction in consent process administration time and day-of-surgery cancellations and delays, and the near zero use of paper supports net zero carbon goals.
