Formedic introduces electronic patient interviews
Provider of patient record forms Formedic introduced the Medical History Questionnaire (MHQ), a free, electronic patient interview product. The point-and-click system is aimed at capturing the patient’s history and current symptoms prior to their visit, according to the Somerset, N.J.-based company.

Formedic said that MHQ will run on a standard PC in a waiting area, exam room or can be accessed online from a patient’s home or office.
The MHQ offering, which is EMR compatible, also has the capability to access up to 5,000 unique symptom-based question sets. The system then turns the patient’s answers into familiar clinical terminology, organizes the positive and negative findings by body organ system, and generates a complete subjective history note, Formedic said.
