    • Make ipad signature possible!!

      Very disappointed. We were sold the idea of going paperless by using ecentral questionnaires and still can not have a legal signature on our ipads when the patient completes the medical history update. Our office is very unhappy!! I can not believe that Dentrix would not have the appropriate legally required signature space available for our patient's to sign with in the software program developed for ipads accurately.

      Could you please make the signature capability possible when using the ipad. That is our main form of all patient responses and medical and financial updates.

      • Questionnaire G7

        You are getting closer on the Health History/ Questionnaire. We need more characters in both the Allergies and Medical Conditions. Also, why not allow us to create a list of just Allergies and just Medical conditions in the questionnaire? Just like how you have it separated in the Health History That would allow us to not have to put "Allergy" in front of each Allergy. Also, can we set the order? Not just Alphabetical? Thanks!

        • Format for Date of Birth on Questionairre

          on the patient information, it should say D/M/Y for Date of birth below the blank space. We have had most of our patients enter in the wrong format.

              Questionnaire keeps locking up and giving an error message on some workstations since installing G7. Anyone else having issues with this?

              • Medical conditions

                We would like to add the medical condition HPV to the current list of condition. I contacted tech support today and I was advised we could not edit / customize the list and it was suggested to remit an Enhancement request.

                • When creating a questionnaire I would like the ability to have side by side questions with short answer so they do not take up a whole line.

                  Minimizing the amount of space by using one line for short answer questions. Make questionnaire to long. I feel this could shorten it up.

                  • questionaire and consent enhancement

                    having the capability to scan\customize our consent form and have unlimited characters to put on our consent forms instead of just 600 words. then the questionaire has the portion where we can also put the insurance information instead of manually putiing it in the family file

                    • Please make a tutorial on How to set up Questionnaires and Implement.

                      It would be nice to have examples in a tutorial "how to" set up and use the questionnaires and be able to follow step by step

                      • Update the Questionnaire for Pediatric offices

                        We are a pediatric office and need to get parent's information on the questionnaire and they are not our patient. Yet the questionnaire says "Patient's name" when we need to obtain their info. Please figure out a way to just say Name so that it does not confuse the parents. We have some parents that repeat the patient's name three times in place of both guardians/parants.

                        • Questionaire set up

                          It would be great if there were more options to get the medical history to print on one page. Either be able to adjust the font type and size or be able to make it 2 columns.

                            It'd be helpful if we were able to upload our current patient forms and have patients be able to fill out our specific forms through our websites.

                            • Saving a signature

                              When signing your questionnaire form, instead of having to use the mouse or signature pad for every patient, allow the signature to be saved. Then when you drop your name down it would automatically pop up your signature attached to your name.

                              • Questionnaires should alert user when they have timed out

                                It seems that the questionnaires time out when users are on them for more than 30 minutes whether they are idle or actively filling them out. Once timed out, it does not allow the user to submit the questionnaire. The questionnaire should inform the user that they form has timed out and can't be submitted. Also, the time out should be for when the form is idle for a given amount of time, not if the user is filling out the form.

                                • Questionnaires Edits

                                  The defaults questions under the patient information setups should be able to be edited. The choices we have can be confusing for patients. For example, instead of saying "name of insured," I'd like to be able to change it to "Name of policy holder." Also, would like to be able to edit/remove some responses from the Patient Insurance Info, Patient demographics, etc

                                    On electronic forms having the alert template say yes or no rather then mark all that apply. This is important legally to show that they reviewed every item. Thanks for listening.

                                    • enable response date editing

                                      Enable response date editing. If a patient fills out a paper form and brings it to the office, we should be able to update that a form was already filled out and enter the date into the response date section. If not, then the pt is told by the kiosk to update forms again even though they just did it!

                                      • It would be nice to have an easy way for existing patients to update health history from on website. I know it's there, NOT user friendly
