Sample Patient Questionnaire

Urodynamics Questionnaire

  • Have you noticed a change in your frequency of urination?
  • Do you currently wear pads or liners to protect against unplanned leaks?
  • When planning a trip, outing or event, does the availability or location of rest room facilities affect your decision?
  • Do you have trouble holding your urine as you hurry to the bathroom?
  • Do you ever experience unplanned, sudden urine loss either while sleeping or during the day?
  • Do you experience leakage while laughing, sneezing, jumping or performing other movements that put pressure on the bladder?
  • Do you visit the bathroom to urinate more than 8 times per day?
  • Do you frequently experience a sudden urge to urinate?

By offering this simple screening to your patients as a standard part of every visit, your office will be able to proactively help your patients with the very common trouble of incontinence. Save your patients what may be an unnecessary trip to a urologist by offering Urodynamics testing in-house. There’s no cost to the healthcare provider to get started and patients will receive the best testing and diagnostics in the country

The Bottom Line

We recommend incorporating these screening questionnaires into your practice the day you decide to begin offering Urodynamics testing. When a patient responds with a “Yes” to any of the questions listed, they are eligible for this testing and you can schedule them for their testing day.

With an average profit of $500 per patient tested, at the minimum of 4 patients tested a month your office stands to bring in an additional revenue of $2,000 a month

If your office schedules the maximum number of patients per day (16):

  • • 16 patients x $500 = $8,000
  • • 12 testing days a year = $96,000 additional revenue!

This entirely turnkey, no-cost to start service offers your patients convenience and comfort, adds to your office’s existing standard of care, and has the potential to add a substantial revenue stream to your practice.
