DocuSign is a software tool that automates electronic signatures and document routing. For investigator-led research projects and clinical trials, DocuSign can be implemented to streamline, improve, and easily transfer research documents such as protocols, grant administration, informed (electronic) consent, and non-disclosure and data sharing agreements. Wherever eSignatures are approved for use, DocuSign can help.
DocuSign provides full document encryption, a tamper-proof audit trail, redundant and geo-dispersed data centers, and is fully compliant with the ESIGN Act. User's documents are not visible to administrators. Learn more about DocuSign’s security at DocuSign Security & Operations.
