Digital assessment tools have revolutionized the way care providers manage patient information and assessments. StoriiCare is one platform that offers a range of powerful tools that are designed to streamline the assessment process and improve quality of care. In this blog, we will explore some of the popular functions of Form Builder, one of StoriiCare’s key features.
Form Builder gives care providers the power to create virtually any form they desire: both standard care assessments and documentation unique to their organization. The Form Builder is incredibly user-friendly, with a drag-and-drop interface that makes it simple to add and rearrange fields. There are many elements that can be used in Form Builder: tables, check boxes, drop-down menus, digital signature boxes, etc. Once published, any assessment created can be completed by staff and saved against a service user.
1. Matrix Calculator
The Matrix Calculator is a tool that generates risk scores based on specific criteria. This tool is particularly useful for assessing the risk of falls or pressure ulcers. Care providers can input cut off points into the Matrix Calculator, and it will automatically generate a risk score based on the entered information. This tool can help care providers make more informed decisions about patient care and prevent adverse events.
2. Linked Properties
Linked Properties is a powerful tool that enables certain fields on the form to be automatically populated. For example, things like name, date of birth, payer type, BMI, or allergies, can be pulled from the system into a form automatically, saving care providers time and reducing the risk of errors. When changes are made on the form, the information is automatically updated in other areas of the system, ensuring that all patient information is up-to-date.
3. Drawing on Images
The ability to draw on images is a useful digital assessment tool. Many paper-based assessments require staff to mark on an image, such as a Body Map. Being able to ‘enable drawing’ on an image in Form Builder means someone completing a MoCA test or MMSE could draw on the clock image, for example.
4. File Upload
File Upload is a tool that allows care staff to upload images or documents related to the assessment. One use case might be uploading an image of a pressure ulcer to a Waterlow Assessment. This feature enables care providers to keep all relevant information in one easily accessible place and track the progression of conditions over time.
In conclusion, converting paper-based forms and assessments into digital ones can help support services reduce time on paperwork, streamline data, and future-proof their care. To see a demonstration of Form Builder and the rest of StoriiCare’s robust EHR features, book a demo.
