"We have been using the DentalWriter online forms for several years, this has been one of the most cost effective transitions that we have ever implemented into our practice!"

One of the greatest benefits among a long list of others to the DentalWriter software is known as Online Patient Forms. These web based, secure hyperlinks allow clients with active support subscriptions to their DentalWriter software to easily import their patient’s intake information from questionnaires completed online by their patients.

“We have been using the DentalWriter online forms for several years, this has been one of the most cost effective transitions that we have ever implemented into our practice! Our clients appreciate the convenience of being able to fill out their forms at home before their appointment. It literally takes seconds to download the forms into our system and not to mention the cost savings on paper, printer and admin costs," said Denise, a long time DentalWriter client, from Dr. Joseph Baba’s office in Wichita, KS, when asked about her experience with the paperless software program.

The secure hyperlinks that patients access can be given to the patient in a few different ways, whichever works best for your practice and your patients. Many practices choose to add the Online Patient Forms hyperlink(s) to their website so their patients can visit their website to complete their intake information. If there is not a web site available or you do not wish to add the Online Patient Forms links to your website, no problem! The hyperlinks can be e-mailed directly to your patient as well. Another popular use is for the practice that has a computer, laptop, or tablet available for patient use. Your Online Patient Forms hyperlink can be bookmarked on that workstation so your patients can even complete their questionnaires online if they fail to do so before arriving for their appointment.

The questionnaire that the patient completes online is customizable to suit the practice’s individual needs and protocol, and can include items such as medical policy information collection, contact information, medical history, review of systems, chief complaints, and treatment specific questionnaire items. Separate hyperlinks can be set up for the different types of patients/treatment offered, such as sleep disordered breathing, TMD/TMJ, and accident/oral surgery.

Once the questionnaire is completed online by the patient, the practice is only a few clicks away from seamlessly importing all the information into an existing patient’s chart, or creating a new chart. Dental practices utilizing their Online Patient Forms enjoy the benefits of saving a great deal of paper from printing out pages upon pages of intake forms for a patient to hand complete, as well as saving time on data entry of the patient’s intake information.

Other benefits include easily collecting the patient’s medical policy information prior to the visit, so a benefit check can be performed before the patient arrives. Patients report enjoying the ease of use, and appreciate easily typing and clicking check boxes to communicate their health history rather than hand completing a stack of forms.
