I'm not a fan of having the portal as the main option for patients to fill out forms. Especially the COVID screen form that is used frequently. Signing up for a portal is a hassle. The COVID form is a hassle to begin with in their eyes and I need a quick way to check who is still needing to complete the task.
I would LOVE a separate link for the COVID form, attachable to automated communications FOR PATIENT ENGAGE. The return would come into questionnaires and just be directed to doc ctr when completed.
In this present time, this is a situation that ALL offices face. We are trying to operate safely. We need to know COVID information 2 DAYS prior to appointment to allow time for follow up/ resetting appointments when there is a concern that should have the patient stay home. Presently Demandforce, Questionairres, Dentrix, combined in the Patient Engage system doesn't permit this extra link. PLEASE EXPEDITE THIS REQUEST SO THAT OFFICES CAN MAINTAIN SAFETY!!!!!!!!!!
