How Online Notary Services Are Improving The Healthcare Industry

This may sound surprising, but some of the most frequent users of online notary services like NotaryLive are in the medical field. This is largely because hospitals and other medical businesses have a large workforce with relatively few administrators. With the pace at which hospitals are hiring staff, administrators need to use RON for notarizing background checks and other internal documents.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, “employment in healthcare occupations is projected to grow 16 percent from 2020 to 2030, much faster than the average for all occupations, adding about 2.6 million new jobs.” As you would imagine, that many new hires translates to a lot of notarized documents. On top of all of that hiring document notarization, there’s also a need to quickly notarize medical documents.

Thanks to Remote Online Notarization (RON) and platforms like NotaryLive, the process of notarizing documents has never been so easy, convenient, and secure. This added convenience and security are shaking things up in the healthcare industry in a big and potentially life-saving way!

Saving Time & Saving Lives

There are very few fields in which time can be as critical as it is in healthcare. While saving time for hospital workers and medical professionals allows them to see more patients quickly so they can receive the care they need, the same goes for healthcare business administrators.

For medical professionals, online notary services can help patients notarize documents like power of attorney or child medical consent forms faster which has immediate life-saving implications. But in the case of healthcare business administrators, saving time notarizing documents allows them to use their time to optimize and improve medical operations practices and or keep their overhead down which helps keep the cost of healthcare lower.

Remote Online Notarization is done via webcam which prevents the need for all parties to be in the same room, eliminating the need to coordinate and wait for a notary on staff to become available or physically arrive at a destination which is a major time saver. 

For healthcare businesses like to keep notaries on staff, NotaryLive can act as a tool to help on-staff notaries operate much faster. For healthcare businesses that would rather use our dedicated remote notary staff, NotaryLive is available for 24/7 use and provides a notary process that can take 10 minutes or less. 

Improved Security

Due to the incredibly sensitive nature of medical paperwork and procedures, security is another important focus in the process of notarizing medical documents. NotaryLive has this covered as well.

In fact, RON services are actually more secure than using an in-person notary. Unlike traditional notaries, remote online notaries provide their notarial services online through an audio/video feed using a computer or mobile device which means that these sessions are recorded in the case of a dispute where the transaction must be verified. NotaryLive also uses additional security measures to verify each signer's identity beyond the steps that most in-person notaries would normally take. This results in improved protection from fraud, forgery, or coercion.
