Any Tonic app users with FD?

  • Updated 3 years ago
Hi there, Is anybody using or has looked into using the Tonic for health app for iPad?
I am looking online at it and it seems a pretty good way of switching to paperless new patient intake forms... Apparently they say it can be integrated with any EHR software! We use Smartsoft through a remote desktop connection using Hostus so not sure if this would be an option...
Any reviews or opinions? Or can any Smartsoft members give us any advice on this?
Thanks

Sam

Sam, are you already paperless? if you are, I wonder if i could have a few minutes of your time on the phone as I'm intending to go paperless and i would appreciate any tips you could pass on from your experience. Thanks, Mark Banks - Banks and Dade Family chiropractors, Forster NSW

Hi Sam. We do not currently integrate with any third party intake form applications however we will be developing a tool for Front Desk users later this year that will allow you to create your own digital patient intake forms. This tool will be web based allowing it to be incorporated in our Patient Booking Gateway and, for example, on a tablet in your waiting room for patients to use. We will be keeping the following post updated with further information as it becomes available: https://community.smartsoft.com.au/smartsoft/topics/electronic-forms-new-patient-information

Thanks for getting back to me Tim.
It's great that you are in the process of developing this for the near future!
I am constantly looking at new more cost effective and efficient ways to make the practice more streamlined which makes everyone including our chiropractors happy :)

(P.s. check out the format and graphics on the Tonic app if you haven't already, this would be so cool if Front Desk could do something similar) 
Thanks.......Sam

Please notify us when it is up and running.  One question though, will the form be able to be formatted to our chiropractic practice's individual requirements?

We are gathering user interest in what people would like to see in the new patient electronic information form in the following thread:

https://community.smartsoft.com.au/smartsoft/topics/electronic-forms-new-patient-information

Feel free to leave the details of what you would like to see in the form for consideration in the thread above. A good staring point would be to look at the contents of your current new patient form.

The Tonic health app looks more like a general patient survey tool rather than a new patient form tool, though I have only briefly looked at it. In addition to collecting general patient information, we will also be including functionality so that patients can give consent for treatment and accept responsibility for fees by electronically signing the form.
