Creating forms and progress notes exactly the way you need them is a necessity for many mental health and substance abuse agencies. Relying on programmers to digitize your paper forms and progress notes is time consuming. Pre-stored templates don’t always gather the information you need. Those problems are now a thing of the past thanks to ClinicTracker's Custom Form Builder that lets you customize forms and progress notes on your own. We can also help you with them.
Simple Transition to Paperless
Managing paper forms and therapy notes is a headache for everyone in your clinic. They are cumbersome to update, file, track, secure, mail, and audit. But the thought of converting dozens of forms and therapy notes into a digital format is enough to intimidate anyone who is considering purchase of an electronic health record system.
The Custom Form Builder makes the changeover to an EHR pain-free. If you have forms and progress notes set up different from those in ClinicTracker's inventory of templates, you can easily use the Custom Form Builder to create digital versions that capture whatever patient or program information you need. You can even embed a custom form in existing pre-stored forms and include digital signatures from clients and staff.
Form Builder Lets You:
- Replicate any paper document in a digital format
- Modify progress note templates, or make one completely from scratch
- Create templated documents that you can use to collect client input and digital signatures
- Link any form to the Patient record for instant access and data tracking
