Say Goodbye to Paper

Screen Shot 2016-04-23 at 11.13.09 AMOne of the most common events in any dental practice is the new patient visit that begins with a clipboard of forms to complete. Perhaps your practice is progressive and has new patient forms that someone can download from your website, print at home, and bring with them (if they remember) to that initial visit . The common denominator is paper that needs to be either filed into the patient’s folder or scanned into the patient’s digital record.

The team at Ambir Technology has developed software called nForm that totally eliminates the need for paper. The forms are delivered electronically to a tablet (Apple or Android) and the new patient fills out the forms with a stylus exactly as they used to do with a pen. You can even pre-populate some fields on the electronic form to speed up the process. That will eliminate the need for the patient to repetitively provide name, address, and contact information across multiple forms. Once the forms are completed and signed, the patient clicks Submit on the tablet, and the forms are electronically and securely delivered back to the front desk.

The forms are stored in the same place on your server or in the patient’s electronic record as if they had been scanned. But instead, staff save so much time by not having to scan, and the office eliminates the cost of paper and the costs of disposal of sensitive material. You also score a big win for the high tech image your practice projects.

The cost of nForm is a minimal $299/year license fee. Here is a link to some frequently asked questions about nForm. I suggest that you join the next generation of digital document management. Visit the website or call Amanda Plummer at 630-352-3257.
