With the current state of personal separation, collecting health information is especially tricky. The potential for encountering the COVID-19 virus and other bugs is higher around hospitals and clinics, after all. The opportunities for automation and smart forms can help make registration and health history forms easy. See Formsite’s Healthcare templates for easier ways to collect personal health information (PHI).
Some example healthcare templates include:
- Patient registration forms
- Health history forms
- Appointment scheduling forms
- Physician referral forms
- Prescription forms
Many health and medicine organizations use healthcare forms, including hospitals and clinics. Dental, fitness, chiropractors, wellness coaches, and even veterinarians use versions of healthcare forms.
Features of Healthcare Forms
Healthcare and medical forms have many opportunities for enhancement. For example, the patient’s contact information frequently needs repeating on every form. Using Pipe codes to copy values from previous answers eliminates the duplication and potential errors. The Pre-populate link can auto-fill later forms, too.
Another example is follow-up questions. Many times there are questions dependent on answers to previous questions, and Rules will hide the unnecessary ones. Setting a rule to show the item will only display that item when the conditions are met. Hiding follow-up questions until they’re needed helps to keep forms shorter and easy to complete.
Using existing documents like PDF files or Word docx templates is easy, too. Upload the blank version of the document and connect the form items, then automate the document’s generation. Each result can send the document to one or more email addresses and send a copy to a third-party file storage service.
Protecting Information with HIPAA
Some organizations may have a need for protecting patient information with HIPAA compliance. Formsite has a HIPAA-protected service available for Enterprise service levels at no extra charge. The Business Associate Agreement (BAA) covers the HIPAA requirements for both Formsite and the customer. The HIPAA service details and the BAA are at https://formsite.com/hipaa-compliant-form-builder/.
