Department of Medicine 2016 Tech Challenge

New Uses of Information Technology to Advance the Missions of the Department of Medicine

Lose the paper surveys

Idea Status: 

Lose the paper surveys. They waste everyone’s time from the receptionest to the patient to the records clerk to the physician. The Questionairre could be accessed from the home computer through the 'UCSF 'my chart application' and it would become instantly paperless and quick reading for the clinician when preparing for the patient visit.

This application could save time and instantly become part of the patient record.  This would save staff time in checking in patients, save patient time and would get rid of 1950 style paper records.

For those that do not use computers, offer kiosks with touch screens. 


Hi Dr. Hughes-Fulford,

There is current functionality in MyChart that enables questionnaires to be sent to patients!  You may have already explored this, but if not feel free to contact us and we can point you in the right direction.
