Drawings & Diagrams: Innovation for Your Practice

Drawings & Diagrams

Data collection is a science. It doesn’t matter if you’re making a medical records release form or you’re polling patient preferences – there are always more effective ways of collecting data. People build entire careers out of developing better ways for people to interact with information. And with the drawings & diagrams feature, FormDr makes those avenues for improvement available to you.

Improving Medical Forms with Drawings & Diagrams

The drawings and diagrams feature provides users with the creative latitude to both develop new forms & enhance existing ones. As an alternative to lengthy text, visual elements make it easier to present complex information. That can translate into reaching a wider audience and enjoying more accurate results.

But what you can achieve largely depends on what kind of medical form you need to create. For example, suppose you’re a periodontist who needs to take notes about specific teeth. A diagram of the mouth can make that simple to achieve. Likewise, plastic surgeons can enhance an intake form to by enabling patients to show where they do and do not want to make changes.

Obtainable benefits might include:

  1. A better patient experience: Not everyone speaks the same language. Not everyone is comfortable talking about their health. Not everyone is articulate. With more accessible forms, patients are able to give you more accurate data.
  2. Enhanced integration: The medical forms you create can be integrated with other elements of FormDr, streamlining the experience of collecting patient data with features like data syncing. Need to give your patient form B when option C is checked on your diagram? No problem.
  3. Industry specific advantages: Building a medical release form that’s specific to the operation of your practice? How about a consent form? The drawings and diagrams feature can help make them more specific to your practice. For instance, it could be used to develop a skill assessment by asking patients to draw something for you.
  4. Cost savings: Streamlining data collection translates into time savings, as well as a reduction in human error. Consent can be more clearly established when patients are able to demonstrate their level of understanding.

Drawing for a Consent Form, HIPAA Form, Intake Form, Medical Release Form, etc.

The drawing widget simple — but its high degree of adaptability gives it depth. For instance, there’s a conditional button that lets you connect the drawing widget with other form widgets. If a patient identified an incisor or canine that’s painful, that might prompt an additional form related to the patient’s history with smoking or sinus infections.

In other words, it doesn’t matter what kind of template you’re building. Because it’s simple to add as many diagrams as you need, to setup requirements for mandatory responses, to ensure patients get all the information they need, or to otherwise guarantee all the data that’s collected is securely stored and transferred.

Client Intake Forms Optimized

A successful practice is dynamic, not static. The drawing & diagrams widget is a recognition of the importance of keeping your forms equally dynamic. Combined with essentials features like encrypted data, FormDr’s online form builder can serve as a core part of any effort to achieve HIPAA compliant telehealth, as well as a generally stronger practice.
