PenForms option within (OF) section in notes – offers various electronic forms and informational handouts. Forms can be created and presented in various languages. Forms can be presented to patients on a wireless tablet with signature support, pre-populated with previous form data (auto-cloned) or data from the PenRad database, and provides the ability to update data fields directly from the form.

For example:

Email consent for exam and reminders letters (saving facility mail expense and delivery delay versus mail) see our PenConnect software. Also email provides alternate or primary distribution of patient exam results to physicians versus fax/mail, and supports automatic CCed to others.

Patient consent for release of priors and reports. Patient consent for biopsy. Patient HIPAA form.

Patient medical and risk forms (new patients, returning patients update existing information if applicable).

Documenting with patient signature that the patient received various informational handouts (a multi-page information packet is too time consuming on tablet, best to be reviewed as printed and take home to revisit).

Common document storage for printing handouts (limited formatting).
