WEB SITE FOR PATIENT FORMS
Submit Patient Forms, Malverne, NY, is an Internet service that allows patients to fill out their HIPAA forms, personal and insurance information, and medical history online in the privacy of their homes, before visiting their physicians. Practices can link the forms directly from their Web site or can use the service without having a Web site. Patients can print a copy before they submit, at which time the practice gets an e-mail notification that a patient has registered. A staff person can go to a password-protected account and either view, print out a hard copy, or download the completed forms in PDF or JPEG format into the practice computer or electronic patient folder. Practices can validate the patient’s insurance coverage and “red flag” any medical problems before they arrive.
