How do you currently schedule meetings with your clients? How much do you know about your
clients before their first appointment with you? These are some of the questions that digital intake forms answer for you as a doctor or health specialist.
Now, we often hear people say that, “first impressions last longer”. This is especially the case for hospitals and healthcare facilities, where people are sensitive to relationships. And the ease with these things occur.
In this light, a lot of things can help firm up this first experience with your patients, one of which are digital intake forms for patient onboarding.
With both eyes closed, anyone who has been to the hospital before can already guess that all-too familiar (and otherwise stressful) clipboard that doctors use in onboarding patients.
There’s a general joke in certain parts of the world that one of the many requirements for becoming a doctor is to have a bad handwriting.
While it is mostly an anecdote, drawing the reality from it presents us with an hindrance to patient onboarding. Which is how obstructive, unclear handwritings can be an hindrance to communication through paper forms.
With a simple font that is clear to all reading parties, digital intake forms can eradicate this handwriting problem during onboarding.
Here, we refer to the need for patients to use a medical facility and they’re already burdened by the forms they fill when they get on-site. Talk about adding to the headache. Literally.
As it is, patients in a rush, can fill paper forms without taking note of some important things. Because all that’s on their mind is to get treated quickly. But with digital intake forms, it is clear to them what needs to be filled. Especially since a form would naturally not submit if certain required medical fields are incomplete or unfilled.
All of the above that we discussed, as downsides to paper forms, imply certain complications. These include the drawn-out process of onboarding patients, errors that come with bad and unclear handwriting, and so on.
