How to Create a Health Risk Assessment Form on Outgrow?

1. Determine the Scope of Your Health Assessment form

For example, a general health risk form can advise the users on the next steps after assessing their symptoms and overall condition.

On the other hand, a more advanced tool can offer hospital and doctor recommendations based on the assessment taker’s current location.

Therefore, by figuring out the scope of the assessment, you will be able to structurize your form and collect appropriate information to set it up.

2. Collection and Comprehension of Information

Don’t worry, you can easily get reliable information from organizations like the WHO and ConnectWell. Check out ConnectWell’s official website for more info.

Now that you know how to go about gathering and assimilating information, let’s find out how you can create your health risk assessment form using Outgrow’s assessment builder.

3. Choose a Pre-made Template or Create Your Own

You can simply navigate to the Templates section from the Outgrow homepage and scan through the templates in order to choose the most appropriate one.

In this case, you can head over to the ‘Health & Fitness’ section and choose the most suitable template.

Once you find the template of your choice, simply click on ‘Edit Template’ in order to customize it as per your requirements.

However, if you wish to create your health risk assessment tool from scratch, navigate to the Outgrow dashboard and select a content type.

In this case, you can choose from 3 content types — assessments, chatbots, or calculators.

Once you select your interactive content type, you will be brought to a page with numerous layouts and pre-made templates.

As you hover the mouse over these layouts, you will be able to see the complete preview of the templates.

4. Customize your Health Risk Assessment Form

You can simply head over to the Display Settings and make all sorts of alterations to the images and color themes.

In the case of a health risk assessment questionnaire, you can use simple and sober colors like shades of blue, green, grey, etc.

Among other things, you can also change the placement of your lead generation form, the questions asked in the lead generation form, etc.

5. Set up the Questions and Question-types

Hence, you need to be very careful at this stage. Create a relevant set of questions based on the specific disease or condition. Some questions that may be common to almost all health risk assessments include age, gender, and body weight.

Moreover, you can choose from the different question types which include single-select, multi-select, dropdown, text input, ranking grid, etc.

For example, if you are adding a question ‘Which of the following symptoms have you noticed?’, here you can add the multi-select question type so that the user can select all the symptoms they are suffering from.

6. Create the Results

On the Outgrow builder, you can set up conditional logic jumps in order to determine the results. These logic jumps can help skip questions or redirect to a certain question or webpage based on the responses provided by the users.

Similarly, you can set up different results for different questions. Once you are done setting up the results, simply click on Go Live.

You can then embed your risk assessment tool on any webpage, blog, or email, and your health assessment form is all set!

Real-life Use Cases to Get Ideas From

1. Diabetes Risk Assessment

2. Heart Attack Risk Assessment

3. Cholesterol Risk Assessment

Moreover, you can set up different outcomes here for all three categories- low risk, medium risk, and high risk with the help of Outgrow’s conditional messaging feature.

These were some examples of health risk assessment tools built for specific conditions. You can create similar assessment forms for any disease or condition as per your requirement.
