There are various question types to add to Qnaires depending on what you want to ask and what information you want to collect from your patients. For example, a multi-select question offers your patient several options to choose from. Open-ended text questions ask broader questions to get qualitative responses.
Depending on your clinic's needs, you can add questions to new or existing Qnaires. You can also modify existing questions.
Questions can have follow-up questions or trigger a new Qnaire to open based on a patient’s response. For example, you can ask a patient a Yes/No question, and if they answer Yes, a new question appears, or a new Qnaire for a patient to complete is triggered. See Creating follow-up questions to patient responses or Adding a Qnaire based on patient responses.
When patients complete Qnaires, the questions can all appear on one page or one question per page. You can also group specific questions per page. See Grouping questions in Qnaires. The groups can have headings. See Adding section headers to Qnaires.
