Hospitals, healthcare services and medical practises use Patient Surveys to find out about the satisfaction level of patients and the quality of healthcare they received during their visit, by using paper multiple choice question surveys for quickly accessing responses about the care received by each patient at his or her appointment.
Most people are familiar with completing paper checkbox response forms, therefore Paper patient survey forms are the easiest to respond to by patients and the most practical way to get immediate reponses from patients before they have left the medical practise.
A multiple choice survey template is created using survey software, so that multiple copies can be easily printed, then when they are returned by the patients, they are scanned and the filled in checkbox responses are collected automatically on a computer with optical mark recognition.
Collecting patient response information manually is very time consuming, therfore Patient survey software greatly reduces data entry time as well as giving fast information from patient survey responses and healthcare assessments.
Software for patient surveys has a form design editor which makes it easy to create printable templates for multiple choice, patient surveys. The form processor in the software will automatically capture the patient’s checkbox response information. Patient surveys are scanned to automate collection of the patient survey responses, with patient survey software. It is the most practical solution, as each form can be quickly scanned as it is returned by the patient and the scanned form is automatically imported into the patient survey software which captures the response marks made in the checkboxes. This alleviates the time taken with data entry associated with manual collection of Patient satisfaction survey Data.
Patient Survey Scanning software uses optical mark recognition to capture people’s filled in checkbox answer responses.
Automatically capture patient survey data and transfer to an excel spreadsheet or electronic data management software for further analysis.
Many healthcare centres use pre printed barcode labels to link patient information with patient records in their data base. OMR software captures affixed barcode labels and links the form information to each patient’s data base record. The captured information can then be exported to an excel spreadsheet or other electronic management software. A form template is created with a barcode area which is used to affix a barcode label within the barcode area borders.
Affix and capture Patient Barcode Labels to link survey responses and other patient information, to patient data base records.
Scan Patient Survey Forms to Collect Checkbox Responses
Scanning multiple choice paper surveys to automate collection of patient’s filled in checkbox responses, is a fast, efficient and accurate way to retrieve survey analysis data. The computer software used for this process uses optical mark recognition and is called OMR software.
