Configuring signatures

Set up your electronic signature to add it to forms, prescriptions, letters, and other documents

Updated over a week ago

You can add your signature in the TELUS Collaborative Health Record (CHR) to insert it into forms, prescriptions, letters, and other documents. For providers, a digital signature is required to sign encounters.

You can create e-signatures in the CHR using one of the following methods:

  • Auto-generate a signature using your first and last name.

  • Draw your signature using your mouse or cursor.

  • Upload a picture of the signature.
    💡 Tip: When uploading a signature, sign a white piece of paper using a black pen. Scan the signed paper and save it as a graphics file (.png or .jpg) so that the signature is approximately 500 pixels wide x 200 pixels high.


1. From the main menu, click Settings > Profile.

2. In the Signature section, click Update your signature.

The Update Your Signature window appears.

3. Select one of the options to configure your signature and click Update.

📌 Notes:

  • When you try to update a signature without selecting one of the three options, a No signature type selected error message appears.

  • When you upload an e-signature from an image, and you click Update without selecting a file, a No file selected error message appears.
