    Hi guys,

    We own a cosmetic medicine clinic which is still using paper charts. I would like to move it to an electronic medical records system, but I have not found one I like yet.

    Since we reopened after the COVID-19 lockdown, I have been asking all of our patients to complete their informed consents online using Jotform forms. I LOVE them!  They are so easy to create and so easy to use.

    So my question is: Can I use Jotform as the basis for an EMR system for our cosmetic medical clinic? If so, how would I make this happen?

    Thanks,

    Monica

    Greetings Monica,

    Would you mind sharing us the link to the EMR that you are using? We will need to check their website if they support an integration through API. Or, you can ask the support for that EMR service to look for Jotform and do the integration through our developers' page here https://developers.jotform.com/.


    Thank you.

    Hi Niko,
    Thanks for answering.
    We do not HAVE and EMR system yet. Everything is done on paper charts.

    Thanks for your reply, Vincent, but you didn't answer my question.
    Can you please forward my question on to a developer? I think they'd have
    a better understanding of what I am looking for.

    Hi Monica,

    do I understand correctly, that you do plan on transitioning to an EMR system from paper charts?

    If so, it would depend on the system you end up choosing if it can be integrated with JotForm. It might be possible using our API, but our developers would need more specific information on this in order to be able to give you an answer.

    Can you please tell us a little bit more about what you would like to achieve?

    I feel as though I have asked this question three times already, but either
    nobody's reading it through or they do not understand my question.
    Please read it through *carefully* and consider your answer before you
    reply.
    1. We are currently using paper charts. We *do not* have an EMR system
    in place.
    2. I started using Jotform so our clients could fill out all of their
    forms online at home before coming in to our Clinic.
    3. I know you keep all of the data on a server and it is HIPAA compliant.
    4. I would like to know if Jotform could be used as an EMR.
