Historical (view previous versions of standard)
Significance and Use
1.1.1 Defining a document structure for use by electronic signature mechanisms (Section 4),
1.1.2 Describing the characteristics of an electronic signature process (Section 5),
1.1.3 Defining minimum requirements for different electronic signature mechanisms (Section 5),
1.1.4 Defining signature attributes for use with electronic signature mechanisms (Section 6),
1.1.5 Describing acceptable electronic signature mechanisms and technologies (Section 7),
1.1.6 Defining minimum requirements for user identification, access control, and other security requirements for electronic signatures (Section 9), and
1.2 This guide is intended to be complementary to standards under development in other organizations. The determination of which documents require signatures is out of scope, since it is a matter addressed by law, regulation, accreditation standards, and an organization's policy.
1.3 Organizations shall develop policies and procedures that define the content of the medical record, what is a documented event, and what time constitutes event time. Organizations should review applicable statutes and regulations, accreditation standards, and professional practice guidelines in developing these policies and procedures.
