How do I use Forms?
Modified on: Fri, 11 Oct, 2019 at 10:08 AM
We are pleased to introduce to you our electronic forms that offer paperless document usage for your practice! Forms are totally customizable, therefore you can convert any form template into an electronic Smart Flow Form.
To start using forms, please create them in your Smart Flow web account (please learn how to create Form) and then utilize them as form templates for any patient. All Forms contain static text information and custom field to outline the owner's and patient's information, health status, consent conditions, signatures, etc. The following is an example of the paperless form layout:
Once the Form is created you may use it from the iPad for any new or existing patient. To start filling the Form, please go to the Smart Flow application on your iPad:
Using a Form to Create a Patient:
Press the + button in the top left corner and select the Admission Form:
From this point, the client will have the ability to fill out their own information using the clinic's iPad, take a photo of their pet, enter a reason for their visit, etc. Upon completion of the Admission Form, a signature will be required. By clicking the Getting Started button, the client will save the form and then will be asked to return the iPad to the receptionist.
Staff will be prompted to enter a passcode to use Forms to finalize the patient creation procedure:
Once the Whiteboard and Template are selected for the patient, please click the Create Patient button:
The patient has now been created and added to the Whiteboard! You will have the option to Go to the Whiteboard or New Admission Form.
Using a form for an existing Patient:
Open the required patient's flowsheet on the iPad > click on the Extra options button, or pinch the screen to get to the dark screen:
Choose Forms from the menu and click on the required Form name that you would like to select:
Then fill out the Form!

*Please note that this video is just an illustration and some features may be updated in the newer version of the application!
NOTE: If your clinic uses EMR or PIMS integration, depending on the product used the Forms can be sent automatically from Smart Flow to your EMR/PIMS. Please review our Integrations and discover the functionality you may use.
ALSO NOTE: eVetPractice & ezyVet integration enable you to create a patient with the Admission Form functionality in Smart Flow and eVetPractice / ezyVet at once.
