Let patients, customers, and vendors complete online applications from any device — anywhere.



Process clinical trial data, HIPAA forms, and claims in a matter of minutes — not days.



Work inside the systems you already rely on — including Microsoft applications — thanks to integrations and APIs.



Collect signatures securely while complying with 21 CFR Part 11 and other industry regulations.


Streamline compliance with remote convenience.

With Adobe Sign, it’s easy to verify a signer’s identity or authenticate an employee while complying with industry regulations such as U.S. FDA 21 CFR Part 11. E-signature requests are e-mailed to signers with unique links to documents and you can add increased security such as U.S. government ID authentication, password-protection, and SMS verification. And, our cloud signatures can be used to apply a certificate-based digital signature, such as advanced or qualified e-signature as defined by the EU eIDAS regulation.

Whether signing on a desktop or mobile, the e-signing process is tracked securely and recorded in the audit trail. And, just for healthcare and life sciences, signers can select the reason for each signature.

With Adobe, medicine moves at digital speed.
