Qnaires Qnaires are questionairres, surveys, or otherwise that provides the ability for our clinic to gather structured information from you. They can be either clinic initiated or self-initiated (within the UpPatient app only). Clinic initiated qnaires may be sent to you prior to an appointment to gather specific information about your or your condition, or may be sent to you to offer the opportunity to give us more information or send a photo. Self-initiated qnaires are automatically loaded within everyone's account. At this time these are only accessible in the UpPatient app under "Available Qnaires". Our Medication Refill Request Qnaire is available here. Others will be added over time.
