Getting Started: Healthie Intake Forms

Healthie's intake form system makes it easy to automatically and electronically collect health information, e-signatures, payment details (credit cards and insurance), and other forms needed for care. You are able to build your own forms, upload existing forms that you already use in your business, and leverage our internal library and specialty forms to customize the forms & fields you'd like clients to complete as they work with you. Forms are completed electronically by clients, and shared automatically when you add them to an Intake Flow. You can receive notifications along the way as clients complete your forms, and you are also able to send reminders to clients

For a video walk-through of how to create and manage your intake flows, visit our recorded Healthie classes at and watch the Deep-Dive Video: Intake Forms.

Getting Started: Add Intake Forms

There are several ways to add the forms that you'd like to use into your account.

  • In your Healthie Account, Forms > Form Builder has default templates for your use and customization
  • If you are a graduate of a coaching or affiliate program, Healthie can add these forms to your account
  • If you would like assistance from our team in uploading your existing forms, and having our team build them on your behalf, e-mail them as an attachment to
    • Note: there is a turnaround time of 7-10 business days for our team to build and add your forms to your account
    • Note: there is no extra fee for this, but we reserve the right to limit the number of pages for a specific account
  • You can build your own forms in the Forms > Form Builder (instructions below)

You will need to add your forms to an Intake Flow before they are shared with clients. 

Deep-dive: Build Intake Forms in Healthie

  • From Healthie's Dashboard, Navigate to Forms > Form Builder
  • Add a New Form, or choose from a template that you'd like to modify
  • Using the menu of question types, drag and drop the template of the question you wish to add to your form. 
  • Click "Edit" to change the name and content of your question.

You can make some questions in an intake form required within your form. You will notice that every question is in a box, with an edit, copy, and delete option. Select edit of the question, where a pop-up box will appear where you should see a checkbox for required.

You will need to add your forms to an Intake Flow before they are shared with clients. 

Leveraging "Smart Fields" 

Healthie's Smart Fields enable you to have information from intake forms pre-populate within a Client's Profile and onto your Charting Templates, which eliminates duplicate data entry. More information here

Editing an existing Intake Form

You are able to make updates to an intake form that you have already created, as well as to a form that has already been shared with clients.

Select the form that you'd like to make an edit to you, and simply add / remove / edit questions within that intake form. 

Copying an existing Intake Form

There may be instances in which you would like to copy an existing intake form. These reasons could include:

  • You want to modify an intake form without affecting the experience of clients who have already completed it
  • You may want to customize a form for each specific client, while using your base template
  • To copy an intake form, navigate to: Forms > Form Builder > Select Form > More > Copy. You will then see a Copy of that form appear in your Forms > Form Builder section when you navigate back to that screen.  

Printing a Blank PDF of your intake form

To print a PDF of your intake form, please select the form, press "Preview" - you will see a button called "Generate PDF"
