Ensuring high-quality patient care for a multi-specialty medical practice

The medical practice turned to ProntoForms for help with several issues it encountered in delivering high-quality patient care for its dental outreach program. The challenges it was looking to solve include:

  • Regulatory compliance. The organization regularly collects private and personally identifiable information from patients. It required a solution that would empower it to gather patient data easily while complying with HIPAA, SOC 2 Type II and FDA’s Title 21 CFR Part 11.
  • Complex conditions & procedures. Before an appointment, an average of 40+ data points are collected per child. During a dental visit, the complex procedures increase the number of data points collected to around 95. The organization sought a solution that could be scaled with minimum effort and accommodate a variety of detailed checklists.
  • Remote locations. With mobile dental clinics in underserved communities across five states in the United States, the medical practice needed a solution to capture data in remote areas with poor or no internet connectivity.
  • Inefficient paper forms. Using a paper-based process to capture data was a difficult process that required staff to complete duplicate forms.
  • Support for a variety of devices. Since its healthcare providers used iOS, Windows, and Android mobile devices, the organization needed a solution that could capture data accurately and was compatible with each of these operating systems.
