Reduce data entry
No more keying in handwritten information. Patient intake data automatically populates within the EHR and practice management system. There’s less room for error because your staff no longer needs to figure out patients’ handwriting.

Minimize errors from scanning
Scanning forms into the EHR consumes time and increases the chance of errors. Patient intake data gathered online or during an in-office appointment through a digital pen goes directly into the EHR.

A better patient and staff experience
Digital intake solutions are more convenient and make waiting rooms less crowded. The patient submits information from the comfort of their home, alleviating the burden of data collection and entry on your staff.

Advantages of NextPen

  • The effort to collect patient data and then perform time-consuming data entry can weigh heavily on staff. NextPen structured data forms help alleviate this burden by enabling patients to do their own data entry.

  • Scanning consent forms into the EHR consumes time and increases the chances of errors. Patient data gathered through NextPen goes directly into the EHR without the need to scan.

  • A computer in the room can be a distraction. NextPen allows providers to capture data using traditional and comfortable pen and paper technology without using a scribe or later having to transcribe the data into the EHR.

  • When a provider uses a mouse on their computer to illustrate a clinical topic, it can be clumsy, inaccurate, and slow. NextPen enables providers to draw images in color without the need to scan them later.

  • During home visits or any visit outside the four walls of a clinic, providers can use NextPen to capture patient data, even without connectivity, and quickly transfer it into the EHR back at the office.

Patients write in the forms, which translate into a digital format on a template that stretches back to the providers. They see this data originally put in by the patients.
