Medical History Form Writebacks with Patterson Fuse

Transfer your patient's medical history information from Digital Forms to Patterson Fuse with a data sync with the Medical History Form.

**The only way to write medical condition information back to Patterson Fuse is to use the pre-populated Medical History Form. This form is not editable and you cannot create multiple medical history forms to sync with Weave.

The availability of this feature is dependent on your Weave bundle. Schedule a time with a Weave representative to learn more.

All Digital Forms customers with Patterson Fuse can automatically access Medical History writebacks. Make sure writebacks are turned on in the Digital Forms Dashboard settings. Medical History Writebacks are not available for multi-location accounts.

Turn on Writebacks

  1. Open the Digital Forms Dashboard
  2. Click Settings.svg Settings
  3. Make sure writebacks are Authorized and each individual section is set to the preferred setting in the Writebacks section

Send Medical History Forms to Patients

Because this form has already been conveniently synced by Weave the first time you log into the digital forms dashboard, all you have to do is send the form to your patient to fill out and submit.

  1. Open the patient profile by searching in Blue_Patients.svg Patients
  2. Click the Forms_Elements.svg Forms icon 

    Tip: You can also go to the message thread with the patient and click on the Forms_Elements.svg Forms icon at the bottom of the page.

  3. From the Form or Packet Name Carrot_Down.svg dropdown, select Medical History

    Tip: You can also add the Medical History Form to a packet to be sent with other forms. Because the Medical History Form cannot be edited, you may want to include an additional form with any other information that needs to be updated by the patient.

  4. Select the method of delivery (text or email)
  5. Click Send 

From here the patient will fill out the form with their medical history. 

As soon as they submit, you will see the form appear in the Digital Forms Dashboard with their name. Click into the form and scroll to the bottom to see the writeback status.

You can delete the Medical History Form, but it will reappear on the next log-in.

Synced next to the User.svg Patient icon shows that a patient's medical history is updated in the patient record in Patterson Fuse.
