Help patients help themselves with self-serve Website Forms
With Website Forms, patients can submit health requests, complete clinical forms, and securely share photos, documents, and more online – all while decreasing the demand on your staff
“As a university health service, our annual rush of new students meant tedious and laborious new chart creation. The registration Website Form from Ocean allows this process to be boiled down to a few simple clicks.”

How Website Forms work
Your Website Form is accessible through a URL generated by the Ocean Platform. Post it on your clinic website or share the link via a secure message to give your patients access.
The clinic receives an email alert in real time when a new request has been submitted. Staff can view submissions in the Ocean Portal and respond as needed.
Where appropriate, accepted requests can be imported into the EMR. If a chart doesn’t exist, Ocean can generate a new one and prepopulate the demographics.
Ways to use Website Forms
New Patient Intake
Receive new patient requests, self-referrals, and even clinician referrals, and allow Ocean to generate new charts based on the information provided.
Limit unnecessary appointments for requests like prescription renewals, school forms, travel cancellation forms, and doctor’s notes by accepting them online.
To support visits, request documents, images or other files from your existing patients, with the option to easily import into the EMR if medically necessary.

Common questions about Website Forms
Yes! Ocean provides a standalone URL to your form that can be shared and viewed from any web browser, even if you don’t have a website. Some clinics print it on a poster, some share the link in their newsletters or even in the signature of their outbound messages.
Absolutely. Depending on which Ocean Form a clinic chooses to turn into a self-serve Website Form, they can limit usage to specific providers or make it available to all patients at the clinic. When a patient completes a Website Form submission, their request is tagged with their primary provider.
