Optimed Launches Informed Consent Tool

Consent: How Are We Doing?
Only 9% of patient consenting is performed fully. The most common omission is evaluating patient comprehension, which is only done in 1.5% of consultations (Braddock et al, 1999).

Patients cannot accurately recall information about risks of cataract surgery through conventional consultations (Pesudovs et al, 2006). Use of multimedia patient education tools has been shown to improve patient understanding over verbal and written information (Schenker et al, 2011). Multimedia tools also reduce the amount of time spent by clinical staff (Baenninger et al, 2018).

A New Consent Tool
Optimed Ltd. ( are launching CAPTIV8® Consent to save clinicians’ time and improve the quality of informed consent. The company has an extensive library of 3D medical animations, in several languages, that cover a wide range of eye conditions and surgical procedures in Ophthalmology.

The consent tool allows Ophthalmologists to create customized playlists of animations and upload personalized videos to educate patients as part of the consent process. The tool allows surgeons to add quizzes to assess patient understanding in-between animations within the playlist.

Once the playlist is completed, the patient can review their score and corrections. Each consent playlist is associated with a specific legal consent document, which the clinician can upload into the CAPTIV8® platform. Once the patient has evaluated their score, they can read the consent document and electronically sign the consent form using a tablet, such as an iPad. CAPTIV8® Consent merges the signed consent document and patient questionnaire into one PDF document and automatically sends it to your practice email, EMR platform, or the patient.

The CAPTIV8® Informed Consent tool helps clinicians:
1. Implement a robust informed consent process.
2. Save time.
3. Improve and record patient understanding.

“Demonstrating patient understanding is a key part of the definition of consent. Unfortunately, this is missing in 98% of consent procedures. Considering that around 50% of medical negligence claims in ophthalmology are in the area of cataract and cornea, and the growing multifocal IOL market, implementing a professional tool like CAPTIV8 Consent is sure to help Ophthalmologists and patients alike,” said Dr. Trusit Dave, Optimed Ltd. Founder and Director.

The CAPTIV8® Informed Consent tool is available as an add-on to standard CAPTIV8®+ and CAPTIV8® subscriptions. It is powered by Optimed Ltd, the developers of CAPTIV8®, the most innovative platform for patient education and clinic marketing, designed specifically for the eyecare industry.
