Health questionnaires come in handy for different medical contexts. In one instance, they can speed up a patient’s medical examination and in another instance, they can help healthcare providers to efficiently carry out administrative work like registering new patients and planning lab tests. 

In this article, we’ll look at 17 of the best health questionnaires that are useful for both patients and medical practitioners. On Formplus, you can find multiple ready-to-use templates to help you gather and process data efficiently. You can also build your form from scratch in the form builder. 

What is a Health Questionnaire? 

A health questionnaire is a quantitative method of collecting information about a person’s health status. It is typically used by doctors or other health practitioners to gather important data about someone’s health and well-being. This data allows the healthcare provider to know how far the patient has come and to develop an accurate treatment plan based on this information. 

A health questionnaire contains different close-ended and open-ended questions pertaining to the context of the research. In some cases, health questionnaires are for administrative use such as booking clinical appointments and conducting patient satisfaction surveys.
