Paper Hypnotherapy Consultation Forms – are they obsolete?

When was the last time you made a call from a phone box? Is it months or years?

I can remember my first mobile phone. It was the size of a brick and with the battery, it weighed more than one. I loved that phone, now my mobile is worse than the kids when it comes to demanding my attention.

I have another question, when was the last time you wrote a letter? Not an email, a real paper and envelope, stamp and letter box letter?

All that paper and stamps and you waiting weeks for a reply.

Do you remember Nora Ephron’s movie ‘You Have Mail’ with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks? I loved that movie and email changed our world, didn’t it? It became our liberation!

Since then we haven’t looked back. Email too, is not exactly what we planned for it but can you imagine life without it? Email is digital, paperless, almost instantaneous and easy to file away where you can find it.

Ok, so can you please tell me why you are still using the same paper based Hypnotherapy Consultation Form that you used when you carried change for the phone box and had a book of stamps in your desk drawer?

Why are you still dragging out the clipboard with your Hypnotherapy Consent Form neatly printed out ready for filling in and squirrelling away in a filing cabinet along with the patient’s Health History Form, your notes and options? After all, we all love a clipboard shoved in our face don’t we? Hypnotherapy is all about decreasing stress not increasing it.

Isn’t time your Consultation Forms caught up with the rest of your world?

You certainly have an elegant and informative web page. Your mobile phone is as smart as the computers that NASA used for the moon landing. You do your accounts on Accounting Software not an abacus. So why are you still using paper forms?

Is it because no one has offered you a quick, flexible solution?

Isn’t it time you threw the paper forms away like the bell bottoms and those jackets with the huge shoulder pads and embraced the 21st century?

Paperless means you can send forms to your patient / guardian prior to their appointment using iPEGS Remote, via email as a web form. By completing forms prior to the appointment the patient has more time to complete their medical history thoroughly, they can complete the form in their own time, sign and submit, saving valuable time, improving efficiency and the customer experience.

Alternatively, if you have walk in customers or if your client didn’t have time to complete the form prior to the appointment, using a tablet or iPad you can simply access your web forms via your browser or via the free iPEGS app.

Electronic Consultation Forms – Sports Therapy

January 28th, 2019 Posted by Consultation Forms, Electronic signatures, Paperless, Sports Therapy No Comment yet

In this weeks iPEGS Going Paperless Article we are going to be looking at Electronic Consultation Forms in Sports Therapy and Injury Rehabilitation.

Consultation Forms in Sports Therapy

We are going to be looking at a specific case study with one of our customers Cura Therapy who specialise in Injury Rehab.

Martha from Cura Therapy contacted the iPEGS team and explained her problem:

“I am currently renting a room in a Hair Salon, so as you can imagine there isn’t much space. I have to have a locked cupboard where I store the completed consultation forms and other related paperwork. The main problem is that I store a lot of the equipment I use on a daily basis in that same room, therefore the room is very crowded. The more clients I get, the more equipment I need for rehabilitation to meet my clients’ specific needs. There is not much I can do about the equipment as it is vital for exercise rehabilitation. When I was looking for ways to declutter my treatment room, I decided that going paperless was the way to go.

“Having digital forms will not only save me space but will also reduce my workload. As it is now, I have to take the completed consultation forms home first, scan them onto my usb and then transfer the copies onto an online portal where I keep all my client’s information and notes. I cannot do it at work as I have no room for a photocopier. This is taking a lot of my time and is interfering with my family life as well. At least if the forms are completed electronically and kept online it will save me a lot of time and hassle.”

“Another problem I have is reading my clients’ handwriting as most of it is not legible at all. As most of the paperwork is done after the client has left, I end up struggling to make sense of what they have written. Therefore, digital forms will bring some much needed relief to this problem.”

Martha was keen to use her iPad to complete the Consultation Form with her clients when they arrived for their appointment so she chose to use the iPEGS Direct product – mainly because of the ability to upload and image of the body and draw/highlight areas where the client was experiencing pain.

The Electronic Consultation Form is accessed on the iPEGS App (on or offline) and captures the clients personal details:

Sports therapist Consultation Form

The client’s medical history, current medical conditions and medication are also captured and are essential to help Martha identify the most suitable treatment.

Medical History Form

One of the key features that Martha was keen on was the ability to upload a body chart image that she could then draw on, add text and highlight the areas of pain that the client is experiencing.

Sports therapy Body Chart

The client (and Sports Therapist) can sign the forms electronically along with the date and time. This is the final part of completing this important and essential part of the process prior to the treatment commencing.

Electronic Signature Consultation Form

These consultation forms not only protect the client from any potential risks to their health but they also protect the sports therapist and are essential for insurance purposes.

Once the form’s have been completed they are then submitted securely to the iPEGS Portal where they can be viewed or downloaded as PDF if and when required.

No more risk of losing or misplacing these important forms and no more having to store them in a filing cabinet!

With iPEGS you can quickly and easily create any type of form with the easy to use Form Builder and generate the Web Form or App Form in no time.

Whether you are an experienced professional or are just starting out – it’s time you moved away from the inefficiencies of paper based forms and utilise the amazing technology we have available to us today.
