Electronic Forms: new patient information

As one of our practices is paperless, we were hoping to have a simple new patients form available electronically ie. on a tablet whereby the information they enter is 'pulled through' to front desk. Similar functionality as the online booking request process only they're sitting in the waiting room and we could still do the final 'add' of the patient to ensure there's no duplicates.

Then we'd be pretty much 100% paperless

We'd love this too, but in the meantime we use Typeform.
All other forms are laminated and scanned into the xray tab before cleaning for re-use.

yep, it looks like this topic of an electronic client onboarding form functionality has been on the request list by users for a few years now..I would like to add my voice to this feature as being a valuable feature (which other PMS software brands already have or can add in with other synced providers..)
Lets go Front Desk, time to make it happen!
BTW have other users used any other electronic forms outside of Front desk?

A recent review of other PMS products shows that most of them do not currently have client intake form functionality. Research on this project started some time ago and after consultation with some of our users, we found that they had greatly varying patient intake form requirements. These range from simple treatment and privacy consent forms to taking detailed medical histories.

We are currently working on a form creator as an active project, which will allow users to add custom questions/fields to an online form.

Hi front desk team. Just wondering if you have a timeframe for when you anticipate the electronic patients forms to be up and running. Thank you

Hi Corinne. Development on the electronic intake form add-on is underway. Presently, we're working on other priority items so we can't provide a time frame at this stage. We'll continue to post updates in this thread, so please click the follow button to make sure you receive email alerts for any updates.

Thanks Timothy - what do you mean by add-on?

Hi Corinne. When we use the term add-on, we mean a new feature enhancement in Front Desk. This will be at no cost to Front Desk users.

Hi Tim,
Could the electronic patient details/consent form from our website be automatically transferred into front desk?

Hi Rebecca. Our intention has always been to have the information appear in Front Desk where possible :)

Very interested in having a forms feature available.

We have parts of the business group using Online but have a planned rollout of more of our clinics onto this in coming months, so to be able to have online forms as a part of the offer would be great for both ourselves and our patients.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled E-forms.

Hi, I asked about this a couple of years ago and got this response:

Smartsoft will be releasing an online electronic patient intake form later this year. This will allow you to send a link by email or sms to the online form to be completed or to allow patients in your waiting room to complete the intake form using a tablet device.

Regarding signing of general electronic documents, this is probably outside of the scope of Front Desk. You may consider sending the forms through e-signing tools such as Adobe EchoSign, DocuSign or similar.

Has this happened yet. We are looking for something like Finger Ink which integrates with Cliniko

Hi Indra. Electronic form functionality is still on our development list for Front Desk and will also be a feature of PracSuite. Due to the nature of software development and our continually changing priorities, we can't provide an ETA at this point. What we can let you know is that following the release of the Xero integration in the coming weeks, our next priorities are automating sending of SMS reminders and electronic forms.
