9.3. Special Investigation Forms

Special Investigation forms are used for further examination, tests and investigations. 

Some of the forms are:

Custom Forms

Custom forms allow the user to build their own forms according to the practice’s needs. The form can be compiled with specific questions and pictures or quick notes and free text fields.

The custom form can be set up in 2 parts, one for the patient to be completed and a part that the medical practitioner can complete.

The practitioner can review the patient part and then complete the practitioner part.

The form can be built with the following type of questions:

  1. Short text
  2. Paragraph
  3. Linear slider
  4. Whole number
  5. Decimal number
  6. Date or/and Time
  7. Checkbox
  8. File upload
  9. Image upload
  10. Dropdown
  11. Checked dropdown
  12. Radio buttons
  13. Checkboxes
  14. Signature

Scoring can be enabled on questions that will allow an answer to be allocated a score or number.

Pathology Request

The following pathology integrations are available:

  • Skylims
  • Prelink
  • Lancet
  • Ampath
  • Vermaak & partners
  • Pathcare

The system allows the practice to send pathology requests to Ampath, Vermaak & Vennote, Lancet and Pathcare. The medical practitioner can select the tests that they want to be done on the patient, send the request electronically on the system to the specific pathologist practice of their choice.

The tests will be done at the branch of the patient's choice. When the tests are done the pathologist will upload the result on the system and a task will be created in the GoodX system for the practitioner to look at the results.

The tasks will be marked with red if the results contain abnormal results for some of the test and thus require the practitioner’s urgent attention. This assists the practitioner with shorter waiting periods for results and also prevents results from getting misplaced.

Radiology Form

The following radiology integrations are available:

  • TecMed Africa
  • Millensys/Sectra

Radiology forms can be completed by the Practitioner and taken with the patient to the radiologist. The Practitioner can print out the form or send it electronically via the system to the patient.

The Radiology form will automatically pull through the patient's personal details. The practitioner can add the diagnosis and ICD10 codes, patients clinical history, images of the injury or even attach a *PDF document to the Radiology Request. This will help the radiologist to know exactly what area to work on. 

Eye Evaluation Form

The purpose of the Eye Evaluation Form is to document a series of tests performed by an ophthalmologist (medical doctor), optometrist, or orthoptist, optician, assessing vision and ability to focus on and discern objects, as well as other tests and examinations pertaining to the eyes. The Practitioner can print out the form or send it electronically via the system to the patient when completed after the evaluation.

The Doctor can make notes and add images under Management and tick if the Patients need Surgery, Alternative treatment or if there are any Risks and Complications about the Patient diagnosis.

The practitioner can add the diagnosis and ICD10 codes and images of the eyes to the Eye Eval Form. 

The Doctor can add the consultation and any other procedure codes that were done in the Appointment to the eye eval form and click on the 'Add to Invoice' button to generate the Invoice from the form.

Triage Form - Nurses

  • A Triage form is a clinical form that the ER nurses use to check the patient's vitals and appearance. 
  • This form automatically changes the colour of importance regarding the information that the nurse completes to determine the risk the patient is at.
