  1. Different Intake Forms for different Appointment Types or Per Patient

    I want to be able to attach certain types of Intake forms to certain types of appts or patients. It would be awesome for example if from the schedule I could select from my pre-created intake templates which type of form to send that particular patient.

    This would mean I could select my "new patient intake" for new patients. Then for a follow up patient I could select an intake template that was specific to their diagnosis. For example a patient who has anxiety and depression could receive questions about anxiety and depression symptoms while a patient with ADHD could…

    • Collect Preferred Pharmacy from Patient in Intake Form

      Would be great if patients could enter preferred pharmacy as a structured field in the intake form and have this data automatically saved to their profile in the EHR

      • Kiosk Mode for Patient Intake and Appointment Booking

        Think of the retail health clinic setting. A kiosk mode would allow for new patients to enter the practice more easily. I would like to open a retail-based clinic, and it would be very simple to setup a kiosk (enclosed PC/iPad) out on the store floor. Computers and iPads have the native ability to be "locked down" which prevents users from accessing certain functions or websites. I would like to setup an enclosed iPad right outside my door so I could run a locked down browser to my online booking page. That way I could get more new patients. And…

        • Patient Intake Form Responses Directly into Patient Chart Fields

          It would be great if these answers could automatically be connected to the patient's profile or first new patient encounter soap note. If we could have a clickable option where to link it to, this would allow (hopefully?) easy customization for everyone's individual templates.

          Also, if all questions/answers could be filled out on one page instead of clicking through different screens it would allow patients to look back and edit previous answers easier and also just look more standardized like other forms online. Also, the way the question is in the top section in the dark blue header away from…

            Hi Ana,

            Right now, when you start a SOAP note for the patient who filled out the intake form, you’ll see the patient’s answers right there in the Subjective section of the note. You can read more about how this works here: http://knowledgebase.practicefusion.com/knowledgebase/articles/487648-how-do-i-process-patient-intake-online-check-in

            We have plans to make this information land in the patient’s chart in an even more structured way in the future as well.

            Additionally, we’re always looking for ways to improve our functionality, so this is a great thread for us to hear from our customers on patient intake.

          • Patient Intake Forms without Registering

            Patients do not want to have to remember another username and password.

            Please allow patients to submit new patient forms online without having to register for a Patient Fusion account. Their name and DOB should just be automatically linked to the chart in Practice Fusion, just like when the request appointments online.

              • Alert or Task when Patient has completed Online Intake Form

                In order to use the online intake information at this point, the patient must be checked in for the Intake to populate into the Subjective portion of the SOAP note.
                If that is used the way it is intended, there is no way to know if the patient has utilized the online function until in the office, meaning the time pre-appointment is not diminished and any necessary paperwork cannot be prepared ahead of time.
                There is a need for an alert so that those responsible for inputting the Intake into the chart have an opportunity to do so before patient…

                      I want to be able to send more than 1 intake form per appointment. For example, we have consent forms that we would like to send along with the normal intake forms we usually send.

                        When creating a custom question on the custom intake form. It would be nice to be able to have multiple fields on one page instead of 1 page per question.

                        • Prompt to save when navigating away from a patient intake template

                          When creating a new Patient Intake Template, if you navigate away from it (such as to look up a patient chart) and return to the templates section of the EHR, the template you were working on is gone.

                          It would be helpful if we could be prompted to save the template before navigating away from that section to save our progress.

                          Since the new EHR is more of a 'tabbed' type system which many people are used to using in internet browsers, it creates the idea that we can just return to the "template" tab and resume what we were…

                            • Complex Intake Form Questions Driven by Algorithm

                              Particularly for the first appointment, it would be beneficial if the patient could select a cheif concern from a list and expand on them briefly (e.g. Headache; knee pain; sore throat) in a way that integrates in the chart. If they report abdominal pain for example, we could then ask: how long, what helps etc.

                              Conditional intake form fields would dramatically improve the experience for our patients and improve the data coming in to our practice.

                                  It is a little difficult to find an intake template that is made under an individual account when all of the templates from the PracticeFusion community are all on one giant list. Would it be possible to have them stored under each individual account the way that the chart templates are?
