    Premium possibilities

    • You can add or remove questions, according to their relevance
    • You can also create conditional questions, based on the details input by your patient (with an unlimited depth)
    • In addition, you can customise confirmation messages sent to your patients, yourself, and your office (For example: If the patient requests a quote, we can show them a quote based on the procedure / surgeon entered or even simply email their basic (non-medical) details to your billing secretary to reply)
    • You can opt to update the form or questionnaire styling. This could be the inclusion or removal of page breaks, or specific text, buttons, and displayed messages
    • You can create special conditional logic triggers (For example: If your patient is over 60 and male, we can ask them different questions than we would ask a younger male or even a female the same age)

    There are endless options for your customisations and so, all changes to your forms and questionnaire will be free for the lifetime of your Premium Plan. Because we manually change the form for you, you can continually tweak it until it’s just right.

    How to make a change

    If you’d like to make a change or for more information – reply to one of our emails, call us or fill in the form at the bottom of this article. Or for more information on what’s included in the Premium Plan please click here.

     

    Extra Details of the changes

    1. Email Invoice Checkbox

    If the patient enters an email address into the form, we can show a checkbox asking if they give authority for their invoice to be sent via email
    Example: I give authority for my invoice (if applicable) to be sent via email

    2. Notification message to others (e.g billing secretary)

    Create an extra notification go to others (with no medical data) like your billing secretary
    Example: If the patient selects Yes to a request for a quote, we can email your billing secretary their basic contact details (no clinical data)

    3. Calculate Age from Date of Birth

    Currently most forms ask the Age and also the Date of Birth of a patient. We have the ability to only ask the Date of Birth and then in the questionnaire sent to you we can automatically calculate the age. This would make it easier for the patient as they wouldn’t have a double up of the question.
    However, a problem with this is the calculation is to the nearest whole number so this may not suit paediatric anaesthetists (patients can enter 1.8 to signify the patient is 1 year and 8 months old, or however you word the age decimal on your form).
    Following questions can still be dependant on age (e.g if the calculated age is <18, child questions can still be asked).

    5. Amend the Are You Well Question – multiple change examples

    Some members change the period in question (currently the default is 2 weeks)
    Example: If your surgery is within the next three weeks../ Have you been sick in the last three weeks..

    Some members have a different question for children. Ask if they’ve had a cough, runny nose, cold or fever and if yes then a different box pops up
    Example: Are you well now? Eating normally? Playing normally?

    Another option is to ask about respiratory tract infections within the last two weeks and then also ask about a cold or flu in the last six weeks.
    If Yes is selected for either, a detail / paragraph box can appear where the patient can provide more information
    Example: Any significant respiratory tract infections within the last two weeks? (significant symptoms which could impact on the safety of an anaesthetic include fevers, rigors (shivering sweats at night), chesty moist productive coughs, shortness of breath, or being obviously unwell. Note – do not select ‘Yes’ for a simple cold or runny nose)
    Also:
    Example: Any cold or flu symptoms in the last six weeks? (including a simple cold, runny nose, wet or dry cough, fever or just feeling generally unwell)
    Then small boxes can pop up asking for more details:
    What were your symptoms? (e.g headache, congested, sputum production, cough etc)
    How do you feel now? Do you still have a cold or flu?
    How long since your cold or flu finished?
    And a paragraph box:

    14. Change the smoking / drinking question

    By default, the smoking and drinking question is a single question where the patient can answer Yes / No combinations and then a box can pop up asking how much in an average week.
    Some members split this question into two separate questions (see 15. below for advanced changes)
    Example (adults only): Do you smoke?
    Example (adults only): Do you drink alcohol?
    If Yes = How much did you smoke in the last week? / How much did you drink in the last week?
    Request

     

    15. Extra smoking questions (incl child environment)

    By default, children are not asked if they smoke, however some anaesthetists ask if anyone in the home/car environment smokes and then if they are an adult they can also ask if they smoke. However if they are a child a warning is shown and if they are an adult more questions are asked (see 16. below for warnings)
    Example (adults only): Have you ever smoked cigarettes or other?
    Example (all): Does anyone smoke in your home/car environment?
    If yes is selected:
    Do you currently smoke?
    If Yes = How much did you smoke in the last week?
    If No = How much did you smoke in the past?
    – When did you give up?
    – Have you smoked at all since then?

    Request

     

    16. Smoking warning

    Show a warning message for a child or a separate message for an adult if the smoking question (see directly above) is selected
    Example (Child): Children should not be exposed to smoke for at least 48 hours prior and for 3 days after the procedure. There is correlation for children exposed to smoke to be at greater risk of respiratory complications during and after the procedure.
    Example (Adult – if they smoke): The knowledge from international research suggests that not smoking for a time prior (48hrs) to your operation results in significant change in the intraoperative and post-operative course of lung complications.

    Currently the GORD question by default asks if the patient has “Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD), gastritis, oesophagitis, stomach or duodenal ulcers, hiatus hernia?”
    Then if Yes is selected, usually 4 checkboxes appear regarding the burning sensation, we can also add gastric band to this
    Example: Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD), gastritis, oesophagitis, stomach or duodenal ulcers, hiatus hernia, or have you had gastric band surgery?

    By default there are usually only two options to the “Shortness of breath climbing less than 2 flights of stairs or whilst walking for 30 minutes on flat ground?” question – Yes and No.
    This question is asked of all ages.
    We’ve had feedback from a few patients recommending we add an “other” option to this (e.g for a paraplegic or for a baby that hasn’t learnt to walk yet). This “other” option can be a free form text box where the patient can elaborate.

    26. Obstructive sleep apnoea questions

    Instead of the standard “Any trouble with your lungs or respiratory system? (this could include asthma, obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) with or without CPAP mask use, or smoking-related problems)” some members ask about OSA (and asthma – see 27. below) separately before this question, plus include a warning
    Example: Do you have known Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA)?
    – Were you recommended to use a CPAP machine? 

    If Yes is selected we can say “Do you own a CPAP machine?” and even show a note or warning message “Please bring your CPAP mask with you to hospital as it may to assist your recovery from general anaesthesia
    Then the lung question is changed to add ‘other’: “Any other trouble with your lungs or respiratory system?

    27. Extra asthma questions

    By default asthma is asked in the lung question. If Yes is answered then a paragraph box usually appears. Some members instead ask separately about OSA (see 26. above) and asthma. Alternatively the lung question options Yes / No can just be changed to multiple choice options:
    Example: Yes – Asthma
    Yes – Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA)
    Yes – Other lung trouble
    No

    If the patient answers Yes to asthma, other questions and options appear
    Example: Select all that apply
    – A full canister of my reliever puffer (eg. Ventolin) lasts less than a month
    – I wake up during the night because I need to use my reliever puffer (eg. Ventolin)
    – I have required oral steroid tablets / liquid (eg. prednisone or prednisolone) to treat my asthma within the last 3 months
    – I have previously been admitted to Intensive Care because of my asthma
    – Anti-inflammatory medicines (eg. Nurofen, Voltaren, Mobic or Celebrex) provoke or make my asthma worse
    – None of the above options apply to me

    Or other questions could appear:
    Have you ever had an ‘asthma attack’?
    If Yes = How often have you had an ‘asthma attack’ and when most recently?
    Have you ever been to hospital because of asthma?
    If Yes = When was the most recent time and have you ever been you admitted overnight to hospital because of asthma?

    30. Risk question

    Ask patients to confirm they have read your information on the risks of anaesthesia.
    Provide us with a document that details the risks  – We can then upload this to your Extra Pages.
    Patients can either be asked if they have read the document (yes / no) or we can also upload the risks to a scrolling box that they can (or must) tick to confirm they have read the risks
    Example: Have you read the risks of anaesthesia section on my FAQ page? (please see Dr xxx FAQ page for this information. I would encourage you to ask me any specific questions that you may have) – Yes / No option
    Example: (risks document also in a scrolling box): I have read and accept the above risks

    31. Estimate of fees / IFC question basic changes

    By default the form asks the patient if they would like a quote or estimate with the options;
    “Yes”, “No” or “N/A – I have already paid” (which then asks for details of how paid)
    There are many ways you can change these options to suit your needs
    Example: (change the question to) If you haven’t already been contacted by our staff, would you like an estimate of the Anaesthetic Fee pre-operatively? Plus the options;
    * I have already been given an estimate of fees
    * Yes – Please send me an estimate
    * No – I’m happy to proceed as is
    * Not required as I am being fully covered by a Workers Compensation / Defence Force / Third Party Insurance scheme

    Example: (remove the question and instead display a note) Your surgeon has advised that you should call the office of on XXX and request a quote.
    Request

     

    32. Estimate of fees / IFC question advanced changes

    Our form is built so that we can provide you complete customisation – for example if there is a common procedure you always No Gap, or if there is a procedure you always No Gap but only with a particular surgeon and/or only at a particular hospital, we can base different values or even options to this question based on your criteria.
    We can either show what the fee would be, do a range or simply given the fee option.
    Example: only if Endoscopy and/or Colonoscopy is written as the procedure, we can show the option:
    N/A – Endoscopy / Colonoscopy (No Additional Fee)

    Example: (if Northern Beaches Hospital is written as the hospital and the procedure is X / surgeon is Y), we could even show the option:
    N/A – I am a public patient

    34. Medicare and My Health Record

    The question “Are you entitled to access Medicare..” exists in the Standard questionnaire however by default we don’t ask the Medicare number. To access a patient’s My Health Record you many need the patients Medicare number – we can add this question if required, and only for those that mark they have a My Health Record.
    Example: Are you entitled to access Medicare..
    If Yes – Do you have a My Health Record?
    If Yes – Please provide your Medicare number

    35. Display your Direct Deposit / EFT details

    When the patient is asked if they would like a quote, it usually then asks them how they would like to pay, with Direct Deposit as an option. For patient’s who select Direct Deposit as the payment method, we can include your payment details underneath and/or on the confirmation page and/or in the confirmation email they receive
    Example: Payment Details:
    – Direct Deposit:
    BSB xxx
    Act xxx

    Request

     

    36. Someone to Collect question change

    The Standard questionnaire asks “Do you have someone to collect you from hospital and who can help you for the first 24 hours after discharge?” Some anaesthetists have changed the wording of this, or even displayed different warning messages.
    Example: Do you have a responsible adult who can collect …
    If the patient selects No, display a note: Please note: In order to go ahead with your procedure you must have a responsible adult collect you and stay with you. Please make arrangements for this now.
    Or, if the patient is 18+, display the note: For the 24 hours after your anaesthetic, we advise that you do not drive, sign important documents or undertake activities where coordination is required.
    Or, if the patient is <18, display the note: For the 24 hours after the anaesthetic, we advise children should avoid activities where coordination is required. This may include, but not limited to, avoiding climbing, bike riding, swimming, horse riding, gymnastics, etc.
    Request

     

    37. Add other alerts

    We can display any alert you require either as a standard alert (shown to all) or a smart alert (only shown to those that follow your criteria e.g medication name listed, previous anaesthetic problems marked yes, over a certain age etc)
    Example: If your surgery is complex in nature or you have health concerns which require multiple medications or visits to the specialist in the last 6 months, the practice secretary may advise you that they will get back to you after Dr XXX has discussed your case with your surgeon.

    Request

     

    38. Change confirmation message

    We can completely customise the confirmation messages patients are shown when their form is submitted
    Example: If the patient mentions a certain procedure and/or surgeon, we can show them a different confirmation message (and patient confirmation email) or send them a link to your document on that procedure (e.g eye surgery).
    Request

     

    39. Add ANZCA info documents

    ANZCA have created a range of anaesthesia documents for patients (link here). We have received written permission from ANZCA to link these documents to your forms and profile pages. Please let us know which documents you would like included. We can even show the patient different documents based on their age / procedure / surgeon.
    Example: If the patient is under 18, we can show the confirmation message and email the link to the Anaesthesia and Children ANZCA document

    40. Change default profile image to a list of hospitals

    If you don’t have a profile image available, instead of a default graphic we can create you an image showing your list of hospitals. Just contact us with the information you would like and we can create it for you in the below style.
    Example:
    Request
    Anaesthetist profile image - Preoperative Anaesthetic Assessment

     

    41. Patient review form before submit

    Example: Would you like to review your answers before submitting the form?
    Request

    43. Add other excessive bleeding descriptions

    Adjust the blood clot and excessive bleeding description to mention other conditions. By default the description says ‘(this could include deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (PE), haemophilia or another condition)’
    Example: Do you have a history of blood clots or excessive bleeding or any condition that may increase your risk of these? (eg. deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (PE), haemophilia, thalassaemia, von Willebrand and others)

    Request
    Non Binary Gender - Preoperative Anaesthetic Assessment

     

    45. Change notification message

    We can completely customise the notification you receive
    Example: If the patient mentions they have had certain anaesthetic problems before or select they have OSA, the notification you receive can have “HIGH RISK” or even “OSA – OVERNIGHT” in the subject line or any other notes at the top of the notification
    Request

    Email OSA - Preoperative Anaesthetic Assessment

     

    46. Anaesthetic problems – warning message & examples

    Ask specifically if they have had problems, add a warning box asking the patient to ensure they mention any problems plus mention example complications in the details question.
    Original questionnaires asked about anaesthetic problems as well as other issues in the question description and wasn’t as obvious to some patients.
    Example: Have you ever had any anaesthetic complications or problems?
    Plus a warning box: Warning Box: If you have ever had any reactions to or issues with receiving anaesthesia in the past, please ensure you detail this below
    Then update the description to: Please list the details of your past surgical procedures, in particular if you have undergone a lap band (laparoscopic gastric banding) procedure. If you have ever had any anaesthetic problems or anaesthetic complications (eg. severe nausea/vomiting, perioperative cardiac events etc) please ensure you mention them here including the name of the hospital(s). Providing these details can help in retrieving previous anaesthetic records meaning past problems could potentially be avoided
    Request
