Hi - is anyone using electronic forms at the moment? I am wanting to set up the ipad with signature capability for our clinic forms (finger sign). We have a multitude of forms - eg workers comp, hire items, new clients etc so do need some editing capabilities ourself. Wanting to know what platform have you used to set up the form - eg adobe acrobat?

Hi there, we are using electronic registration forms - we attach the form to the email we send out to all new patients with their initial appointment details - they need to have Adobe Acrobat to fill the form out - seems to work well. Hope that helps, Jane

Hi Jane, Did you use adobe acrobat to set up the original form?

Hi Indra

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.
