[UPDATED 20 October, 2020]
Since our last post about COVIDform, we’ve received an overwhelming amount of interest and we wanted to thank you for your support!
We also wanted to answer the most asked questions about how it works and how to get it. Keep reading to find out more about COVIDform:
What does COVIDform do and how does it work?
COVIDform allows you to send screening forms via SMS to your patients before their appointment and on the day of their appointment. You can also send consent forms for receiving treatment at your office. This is easily done by clicking any of the options below inside the ‘Modify Contact’ window from the appointment book:
How do I know if the forms were sent out?
Every form sent to a patient will be automatically marked on the top left corner of their appointment slot:
Patients receive an SMS with the link to the form you sent. Once they answer the questions and save their responses, Paradigm will automatically update their status in the appointment book, and is indicated with @ in front of the corresponding form.
e.g. @P Mr. Sandro Logictech indicates that the Pre-screening form was completed.
These features will make your patient-screening effortless. You won’t need to keep track of who you sent forms to, as COVIDform will keep track for you.
How do I check the patient’s responses?
Once your patient completes the screening process, you can view their responses in a PDF file. This can be found by clicking ‘Screening Status’:
- ‘reply received‘ : indicates the patient has received the form
- ‘View Reply‘ : clicking this link will bring up the PDF of the patient’s responses
**This option will appear once the patient completes and saves their form**
How do I know if a patient is at risk of COVID-19?
If your patient indicates ‘yes’ on any of the screening questions, Paradigm will automatically show ‘COVID‘ on the top left corner of the appointment so you can immediately know that they are at risk.
The following message will also show in the Progress pop-up box when you check the screening status of the patient:
Can you send more than one screening form at once?
To help you save more time, you can now set a schedule to bulk-send to patients with an upcoming appointment!
With My Contact Pro, you can pull a list of upcoming appointments to schedule screening forms to be sent out to patients. Simply click on ‘COVID Pre-screen’, ‘COVID In-person’ or ‘Consent’ to bring up the corresponding dialogue box like below. You can then set when the forms will be sent out in relation to the patients’ appointment day.
