What is a Patient Information Form?

The patient information form is a document that helps healthcare staff to collect personal and health information from new patients and register them. Whether it’s primary care or acute care, you want to shorten the waiting time in the medical room and provide safe and effective medical assistance. With 123FormBuilder’s patient information form, you can collect the patient’s data online and have their medical records ready upon arrival at your facility. While these forms are widely used in healthcare settings, they can also serve well to organizations that potentially handle medical data, such as schools or sports leagues.

What Information is Needed for a New Patient?

When registering new patients in your system, these are some of the information you need to collect:

  1. Contact details
  2. Demographic information
  3. Basic health information (medical condition, medications, health history, family health history, etc.)
  4. Insurance information (insurance card, billing info, etc.)
  5. Past medical records (diagnostic reports, medical releases, etc.)

To make a new patient form HIPAA compliant, you only need a 123FormBuilder account. 123FormBuilder is 100% HIPAA compliant, which means that with an Enterprise plan, you can activate the HIPAA option and enjoy the advanced security measures that protect the ePHI you collect with our HIPAA compliant forms.
