eSignLive E-Signatures Help Lifesprk Take Healthcare Onboarding 100 Percent Digital

July 13, 2015
(MONTREAL) – July 13, 2015e-SignLive™ by Silanis, the e-signature choice for business, today announced that Lifesprk, one of the largest community based long-term care providers in Minnesota, has seen significant success using e-SignLive e-signatures to complete contracting in its rigorous hiring process. Lifesprk relies heavily on its frontline employees to deliver high-quality care and service. As such, the quality of the company’s personnel is paramount. Currently experiencing annual growth in excess of 30 percent and delivering services across a 10,000 square mile service area, Lifesprk’s in-depth hiring process, requiring three full-time staff to interview 80 people per month and hire 12, was challenging the company’s ability to provide quality service. “The Lifesprk Experience provided to our clients hinges on our ability to provide consistent, reliable and dedicated employees. Our inability to provide that same experience to our applicants became painfully obvious,” said Lifesprk General Manager, Sara Aschenbrener. With the goal to speed up its onboarding process and its vision to take processes and records 100 percent paperless, Lifesprk needed a solution that would ensure compliance, provide strong legal protection and be easy and quickly integrated into the company’s processes and platforms. Lifesprk selected e-SignLive because of its ability to authenticate a signer using multiple methods, its configurable workflow, and the fact that its evidence is not vendor dependent and can be easily exported and transported into external document management platforms including their EMR and HR systems. Ease of integration was also important to Lifesprk, and the company found that e-SignLive could be used exactly as needed completely out of the box and required just one hour of training to implement across 20 different documents. “Through the introduction of e-signatures for all essential new hire paperwork we have drastically improved the new employee experience, ensuring all are given the consistency, reliability and dedication we expect of each one of them,” said Aschenbrener. “Furthermore, by retaining entirely electronic personnel files, we have streamlined our auditing processes and ensured greater compliance.” As a result of implementing e-SignLive, Lifesprk has been able to reduce the number of hiring staff from three to one while doubling its average monthly hire rate to 24 personnel, and reduce its hiring process from two weeks to under three days. e-SignLive is HIPAA-compliant through a Business Associate Agreement.
