Building a medical appointment form without code can be an excellent way for medical practices to streamline patients’ scheduling processes.
It allows patients to request appointments online quickly, and the medical practice can use the information gathered in the form to schedule an appointment and keep track of patient information.
Using Formaloo, you can create a custom medical appointment form that includes all the necessary fields and information without code.
Here is a step-by-step guide for creating an appointment form from start to finish, including fields for patient information, appointment date and time, and any necessary medical data you need from your patients.
1- Start with your form Title and Description
First, give your form a title and description that accurately reflects what it is. This title and description will be visible to users who fill out the form.
Next, click the “Design” button to choose your form type. You can choose between a multi-step or a single-step form. A multi-step form allows you to divide it into different sections, making it easier for users to fill it out.
On the other hand, a single-step form displays all the form fields on one page. Select the form type that best suits your needs. Also, add fields and customize the form as desired.
2- Add fields for patient data collection and doctor appointment scheduling
The form editor uses the drag-and-drop interface to add and arrange different form elements, such as text fields, date pickers, drop-down menus, and checkboxes.
Add the necessary fields for patient information, appointment date and time, and medical history or insurance information.
Make your form Logic through the “Logic” tab. With Logic, you can add logical conditions to your fields to manage how they react based on the user’s responses.
In this example, if the user selects ‘yes’ on a specific field in the form (Is this your first visit?), additional fields will appear to gather more information relevant to that selection. For example, if the user is a new patient, we need to ask for their basic info like address and date of birth. But if they are an old patient, we will just ask for their patient ID.
You can also import your Patients’ data from an excel sheet and use it in your formaloo. See how easy it can be!
3- Customize your form
The “Design” tab of your form’s editor page provides various options for customizing the formaloo’s appearance.
You can change the color scheme or add your custom CSS.
For example, you can add a background image and change its opacity to make your text more visible.
Additionally, you can change the font, add a logo, and make other design adjustments to make the form look unique and personalized to your brand.
4- Access and manage your patients’ data
The submissions section of the form editor provides a clear overview of all the patient data collected through the form, including name, contact information, appointment date and time, and any other relevant information.
This data can be exported to Excel or synchronized with Google sheets. This way, any new form submissions will automatically appear in the sheet, allowing you to view and analyze the data in real-time.
That can save time and effort, as you won’t have to manually export the data from your formaloo and then import it into a spreadsheet.
