Even before the pandemic changed the face of dentistry, practices were starting to adopt a fully paperless way of working. The obvious eco-benefit for reducing paper and waste is incentive enough, but now it’s clear that digital communications bring about a safer way to work as well as a green one.
We can help with swapping paper with digital alternatives, creating a safer and more convenient way for your patients to deliver personal information to you. Online forms are a secure and contact-free alternative to medical history forms and referral forms.
You can see an example here: Online Patient Form
The best way for us to create online medical history forms is to use what you already have. No point in reinventing the wheel. If you just send us a version of what you use in the practice, we will customise your online form to use all the fields that you need.
Part of the ‘new normal’ will involve a questionnaire to screen patients before their appointments. While this can easily be a call, there’s no reason why you can’t use an online form to free up your front desk team.
