Online Forms enables clinics and patients to use devices like an iPad to fill in forms online. This guide goes through all the steps needed to complete an online form. The steps are separated into 3 parts (Create Form, Fill Out Form, Approve Form) to help users navigate to areas they need help with:
- Create Form
- Fill out Form
- Approve Form
The idea behind Online Forms is to address some key problems within the clinic like proving patient identity, time spent on data entry and paper waste. Conversely, this also represents an opportunity for clinics to capture patient data in a more efficient manner.
Paper is no longer good enough to prove a patient's identity, you need other forms of ID like photo, signature, and GPS to do this successfully. As such, the only way to achieve this is to give clinics the option to use digital tools like Core Practice to help patients receive better service with the data they provide and to also help clinics spend more time doing meaningful tasks.
