Another advantage of online patient intake forms is that they increase accuracy. Trying to figure out either the patient’s or another provider’s handwriting can take time and might not even be correct in the first place. Having to later change that information, even if you’ve entered it into a digital system, takes time. Not surprisingly, patients don’t appreciate that sort of delay. Any inaccuracies, if they go into the system, can create further headaches. Forms filled in advance by the patient that are automatically added to the database can prevent these sorts of problems.
Online patient intake forms can also be tied to appointment reminders. The system can note when you haven’t seen a patient in a while and can remind you to send them an appointment notice, or you can send the notice directly to the patient.
If you can incorporate all these features into one software program at your practice, everyone will benefit. Patients will appreciate the shorter wait times and connected information, you’ll have fewer errors and more time to spend with patients, and the environment will benefit from less paperwork.
