Collect & manage data

Store and organize all patient intake form data securely in your private 123FormBuilder database, where you’ll find a variety of tools to make use of form data. For one, you can export records as PDFs to print a copy for the physician to review. Second, the records can also be saved as an Excel file or CSV for use in patient management software. You can also generate charts and graphs to study patient demographics. Many app integrations are also available, including Dropbox, Smartsheet, and MailChimp.

Optimize processes

Using an online patient intake form can save time and trouble in all phases of care. Filling out the form in advance allows doctors to be better prepared than they would if a paper form is filled out in the office. Furthermore, delays caused by patient paperwork can snowball into longer and longer wait times for patients as the day goes on. Last but not least, custom notifications and exportable data eliminate most of the need for data entry, reducing the potential for hazardous errors in patient records.
