We have now subscribed to BetterConsult, a secure pre-consultation questionnaire that captures a patient’s reason for appointment and relevant clinical information, providing you with a summary of the information to copy for your consultation
How BetterConsult can benefit you
- Control your consultations
by knowing the patient’s agenda from the start of the appointment
- Focus on treatment discussions
understanding the patient's needs up front means maximised treatment discussion
- Set patient expectations
give patients a clear idea of what can be covered in one visit
These benefits naturally extend to benefit your patients as well.
BetterConsult is completely secure and private. The output is only accessible to the patient's doctor.
How to view BetterConsult patient notes
BetterConsult is now installed and linked to Best Practice. Shortly, patients that book a new appointment will receive an SMS from BetterConsult, prompting them to complete the pre-consultation questionnaire. The patient notes will be available when you open the patient record around the time of the appointment.
This short video (less than a minute) shows you how the BetterConsult Doctor App works.
BetterConsult Doctor App in 4 simple steps
- Open the patient record around the time of the scheduled appointment. If your patient has completed BetterConsult you will see a notification in the bottom right hand of your screen. Click on the notification to access the BetterConsult notes for the patient.
- Review the notes and click the “Copy notes” button, or move your mouse over a specific section and click “Copy section”. Close the BetterConsult App by clicking the “X” button (top right).
- Paste the BetterConsult notes into the patient record by clicking Control-V or using the right mouse button and clicking “Paste”. You can make edits to the notes based on your review with the patient.
