If you’re looking for a way to streamline the new patient acquisition process, online forms can be a valuable asset. Making new patient forms available on your website is a win-win for you, your staff, your patients, and your bottom line. Thanks to the range of benefits that make your office more efficient, online forms should be a part of any online strategy.
For many chiropractors, first time visitors need to complete some form of paperwork, including a complete medical history. As a result, you may need to ask patients to arrive 15-20 minutes early to complete forms. Online forms eliminate the need to have new patients arrive early by allowing them to complete any necessary paperwork from the comfort of their own home or workplace. In today’s world, patients are often strapped for time. You will be able to create a great first impression and save valuable resources by making it convenient and easy to patronize your practice.
Some people are blessed with wonderful penmanship… then there are the rest of us. If you have ever experienced the frustration of trying to decipher a patient’s less than stellar handwriting, then you can see the value of typed forms. Online forms on your website increase accuracy by making the content highly legible to you and your office staff. This is especially important when it comes to reporting allergies or other health issues.
The trend for many industries is to move towards electronic records, particularly in the healthcare field. By integrating online forms into your website, you can take a step towards “greening” your practice by reducing paper waste (and money spent on paper). In addition to environmental waste reduction, online forms give you the ability to be more efficient in managing your patient records. Electronic forms enable easy sharing of files to provide comprehensive treatment.
Making online forms available on your website enables you to save valuable time and resources, increase the accuracy of the information you receive, and reduce overall waste. Online form builders also make it simple to export information and prepare for the first office visit.
