What is the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale?

The EPDS assesses common symptoms of postpartum depression that women may experience in the days and weeks after giving birth. The scoring system can help guide providers to understand the severity of depression and how to effectively intervene.  

Depression is a common problem after pregnancy. In fact, one in nine new mothers has postpartum depression.

The liability falls on you to handle patient data in a compliant way. Patient privacy is a serious topic, legislation from the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act place heavy fines on medical professionals who mistreat patient information.

A medical release form does not empower your staff to share patient information with just anyone. Depending on what is included in the form, the document may release medical information to the patient’s family, other doctors, insurance providers, attorneys, or anyone who may make healthcare decisions on behalf of the patient.

They love FormDr - and so do their patients

  • Not having an online custom form to offer patients was a huge struggle. FormDr makes paperwork seamless and saves a ton of time and money by allowing us to upload to patients EMR rather than print, fill out, scan, and then attach. That is now a hindrance of the PAST!

  • Patients can fill out the forms at their leisure, and don’t have to print anything. We’re collecting more completed forms than ever, and patients love not having to do anything when they come to the office for the first time.

  • FormDr allows me to send and receive attractive, professional forms from patients. Very helpful that I can remind patients of their appointment time and check the status of the form.

  • Sending a PDF was too time consuming for the patients to do, and it required the additional steps of printing and scanning it into our own systems. FormDr made it easier to get patients to complete the forms by email, and it’s a more secure way to provide info than simply emailing back a completed PDF.

  • Before FormDr, the most common struggle were our patients taking a long time to complete forms in our office. Now patients are able to be seen faster when forms are completed prior to visit. Very easy service to create forms online!
