Patient Assessment Questionnaires

Patient Assessment Questionnaires can be created and linked with specific Care Pathways to suit the requirements of the consultation, For example a Care Pathway called 'Occupational Health' can be linked to a Patient Assessment Questionnaire appropriate to an Occ Health consultation.

In addition you can create a Patient Assessment Questionnaire for patients booking an appointment. When the patient books an appointment an email can be automatically sent with a link that enables the patient to complete their contact details and submit a Patient Health Assessment appropriate prior to their visit. See Appointment Booking or Pre Visit Confirmation

Questions on Patient Assessment Questionnaire support a wide range of question types from simple Yes/No to multi-choice responses, text input, dates and fields. Each question can be configured to request additional information if certain responses are submitted.
