Due to the ever increasing number of information misuse, people have been becoming vigilant in stating answers to any form that comes their way. However, when it comes to medicinal purposes, Doctor’s Notes and requests, the patient should provide all the needed information for his own advantage.
Wide varieties of Medical Forms are used to meet health-related inquiries and issues. One form which is known to be used by physicians, medical professionals, and even by massage therapists is an Intake Form. This document is similar to a doctor’s prescriptions, however, it is filled out by the patient or client and not by the doctor himself.
There are four known types of Intake Forms, the Counseling Intake, Assessment Intake, Client Intake, and the Medical Intake Forms. These are used by different professionals for their clients; the Counseling Intake Form is used by counselors and mental health professionals, the Assessment Intake Form can be used by all sorts of therapist and professionals who deal with problem resolutions, the Client Intake is mostly used by lawyers, and the Medical Intake is for doctors and medical professionals.
Any document which aims to answer inquiries regarding a person’s status is deemed as a helpful instrument for the inquiring person. So, here is the list of benefits of using Intake Forms, not just for clients but also for the therapist:
Most doctors and other Intake Form users will attach a particular document for granting a permission from the client, and this is known as a Consent Form. The main purpose of having this form is to assure that the client will be participating in the Questionnaire of the Intake Form voluntarily. Specifically, an Informed Consent to Treatment Form is the type of Consent Form document used by these professionals. It also serves as an authorization that the client will be open for the treatment and medical solutions suggested by the doctor or therapist.
Intake Forms are also made available to be used online by any client. Some professionals send the form through an email to their client’s address in a word or in a portable document file format. However, regardless of what format that the Intake Form will be used, it is vital that the client should provide full information and honest answers required on the form to help the doctor and therapist in making a session plan.
