Electronic Records Definition and Examples

Understanding Electronic Records for e-Signing

Electronic records are digital versions of documents that capture, store, and manage information electronically, eliminating the need for paper-based records. In the context of e-Signing, electronic records serve as the foundation for creating, sending, and storing signed documents, ensuring they are legally binding and easily accessible.

What Are Electronic Records?

Electronic records are files that contain data stored in a digital format. These records can include text documents, spreadsheets, emails, PDFs, and more. The key difference between electronic records and traditional paper records is their format and the way they are stored and accessed.

Examples of Electronic Records

  1. Contracts and Agreements: Digital versions of legal contracts, employment agreements, and service agreements.
  2. Financial Records: Invoices, receipts, and account statements stored electronically.
  3. Healthcare Records: Patient information, medical histories, and prescription records.
  4. Employee Records: Digital personnel files, time sheets, and performance reviews.
  5. Educational Transcripts: Digital academic records and certificates.
