We send out a New Patient form with personal information fields.
It would save a lot of time manually inputting data if the data inserted in the form by the patient could be setup by administrators or power receptionists to automatically populate the fields in the patient details section. Each may have to be screened by the authorised user to ensure appropriate information is inserted and edited if inappropriate.
For example the DOB fields populate the DOB in the patient details section, the address populates and there can be a dropdown box which populates the “referred by” field. This way the patient does the work for us!
