I am currently looking at implementing tablet pc's into the registration area of our hospital. The one thing I am running into issues with is collecting signatures. The current med records program supplies the patient signature page in a word document. When using the tablet and signing the form the program will use it's character recognition to convert the sig to text. So I guess my question is two part, is there a way to get Word from Office 2007 to stop converting the sig to text? If so I would like to find out how.
The second part is whether siging into word would be acceptable for a legal signature or would I need 3rd party software for that. Does anyone have a recommendation for 3rd party software that would work for this application?
Thanks for input on either question!
